Coldfire, or 'unfire' as it is often called, is the antithesis of normal
fire. It absorbs heat and light, burning with a flame that can only be
described as 'blue-black, and blindingly dark'. Its exact origins and
planar orientation are unknown, and it can only be summoned in small
amounts and for limited times.
Coldfire was discovered by necromancers, and for a time threw the entire
theory of elemental spellcasting into disarray. Eventually it was
determined that coldfire is not elemental based, and is somehow related
to the spirit realm instead of the elemental realms. As a result of
this, coldfire is typically taught to low level necromancers as an
introductory spell. Due to its spiritual nature, coldfire can even
damage creatures made from ice.
When cast in combat, coldfire is summoned and thrown at the target like
a small unfireball. When cast on yourself, a small, stable ball of
coldfire is created. This ball of coldfire may be used in brews.
Because its spectral nature burns the soul as well as the body, coldfire
also lowers the morale of enemies.
