Lore of Ice

From Age of Sigmar - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

The Lore of Ice, also known as Ice Magic, refers to a class of magic and spells that manipulate the primal forces of the Winds of Izotz, the powers of Ice.[1]

Within the Realm of Chamon lies the Silverglades, a barren land of perpetual snowstorms. In this land resides the Oighear, a tribe of Mages who have learned to utilize Ice Magic. Carrying tribal frost relics and possessing deadly icy breaths, the Oighear Ice Mages can summon storms or blast an enemy with magical frost.[1] Ice itself is said to have originated in the northern rimelands of the Jade Kingdoms. It was from there the Jotunbergs, mountains of living winter, descend and bring an abrupt end to the growing seasons.[2a] Surrounding them are powers of ice magic that can be utilized by nearby wizards.[2b] During the Realmgate Wars, a fallen Jotunberg created a vortex of ice, freezing the Seas of Serpents and sweeping the Realm of Life with the powers of ice magic. It was on this field of battle, that the combined forces of the Sylvaneth and Stormcast Eternals sought to escape from the oncoming hordes of Nurgle.[2a]
