Steaming Spell (Metamagic)

Your magic merges fire and water into boiling steam.

Benefit(s): A steaming spell delivers searing heat through supercharged steam. A spell must have the fire or water descriptor to be cast as a steaming spell. A steaming spell with the fire descriptor functions normally underwater, without the need for a caster level check, and if cast outside of water and the spell affects an area, that area is filled with steam for a number of rounds equal to the spell’s unadjusted level. This steam obscures vision, granting concealment to creatures more than 5 feet away from an observer. The steam never grants total concealment.

A steaming spell with the water descriptor that deals hit point damage deals an additional 1 point of damage per die; this additional damage is fire damage. Such a spell that affects an area also produces a cloud of steam as above that fills all areas within 10 feet of the water it affects or creates.

A steaming spell uses up a spell slot two levels higher than the spell’s actual level.
