Rimetongue Caller

"It takes a cold heart to wield such power."

Prerequisite: Wizard, Primordial language

Summoned creatures can always be improved upon. Other arcane paths, such as the bonded summoner, deal with infusing magical energy into summoning spells to create a more perfect arcane cohort, but your way seeks the mastery of elemental cold. Using Primordial words of power, you have learned to enhance each summoned servitor with the essence of primordial ice.
This influx of wintery power is not confined to just those creatures you summon; it has also transformed your nature into something more elemental. You have adopted the innate abilities and resistance of primordial cold. Your skin, as well as the outward appearance of your summoned creatures, takes on an ice-blue pallor, and your hair becomes a shock of snow-white strands. Even your arcane flames burn with a rimefire blue color.

Rimetongue Caller Attack 11Wall of Winter

Issuing words of Primordial from frost-covered lips, you conjure an unstable wall of elemental ice and wind.

Encounter        Arcane, Cold, Conjuration, Implement
Standard Action      Area wall 5 within 20 squares

Effect: You conjure a wall of contiguous squares filled with frost and raging wind that lasts until the end of your next turn. The wall can be up to 4 squares high.
    Each creature that starts its turn adjacent to the wall takes 1d8 + your Intelligence modifier cold damage. If a creature moves into the wall’s space or starts its turn there, it takes 2d8 + your Intelligence modifier cold damage, and it is slowed (save ends). A creature can take this damage only once per turn. Entering a square occupied by the wall costs 1 extra square of movement. The squares occupied by the wall are heavily obscured, and the wall blocks line of sight.
