Gillimer's Ring of Temperate Weather (abbrev. GRTW) is a misc-class spell for transforming any gold ring into an elegant ring. The primary function of this ring is to heat or cool the wearer towards a more comfortable temperature regardless of their current environment.

A difficulty with the spell is that after being worn for a certain amount of time, dependent on skills, the ring will become non-functional and must be re-charged by casting the spell on the drained ring. The more work the ring has to do, the faster it will drain.
