Casting time: 1 turn
A specially attuned crystal (costing 75gp), in combination with this spell, allows the elementalist to absorb certain energies from his surroundings. Once an energy has been impressed into the crystal's resonance, a second casting of this spell causes it to reproduce the stored energy in whatever environment it now occupies. One of the following energies may be absorbed into the crystal:
- Light: the lighting qualities of an environment may be absorbed and reproduced, causing an area of light, gloom, shadow, and so forth to be emitted from the crystal for 1 turn per level of the caster.
- Images: a static snapshot of the crystal's environment can be attuned for later examination. The image is reproduced for 1 turn.
- Sound: any sound emitted during the 1 turn casting time may be recorded and reproduced.
- Temperature: warmth or cold may be absorbed into the crystal and re-emitted for 1 turn per level of the caster.
Each time this spell is cast, there is a 5% chance of the crystal shattering and becoming useless.
