A misty vapor arises around you.
You create a bank of fog, which is stationary once created. The fog obscures all sight, including darkvision, beyond 5 feet. A creature 5 feet away has concealment (attacks have a 20% miss chance). Creatures farther away have total concealment (50% miss chance, and the attacker cannot use sight to locate the target).
A moderate wind (11+ mph), such as from a Gust of Wind spell, disperses the fog in 4 rounds. A strong wind (21+ mph) disperses the fog in 1 round.
This spell does not function underwater.
Augment: You can augment the spell in one or more of the following ways:
If you spend 2 additional spell points, the spell’s duration is 10 minutes per level rather than 1 minute per level.
If you spend 2 additional spell points, the spell’s range increases to Medium (allowing you to create banks of fog not centered on you).
If you spend 6 additional spell points, the fog becomes so thick as to be nearly solid. Anyone attempting to move through a solid fog cloud has his speed reduced to 5 feet (assuming the speed was more than 5 feet to begin with), and takes a -2 penalty on all melee attack rolls with weapons other than piercing weapons. The solid vapors prevent effective ranged weapon attacks (except for magic rays and the like). A creature or object that falls into solid fog is slowed, so that each 10 feet of vapor that it passes through reduces falling damage by 1d6. A creature can’t take a 5-foot step while in solid fog.
