A Malevolent Maelstrom is a swirling vortex of Shyishan magic, a tempest that sucks in sorcerous energies and the souls of the dead before exploding in a cataclysmic nova.
SUMMONING: This endless spell is summoned with a spell that has a casting value of 5 and a range of 8". If successfully cast, set up the endless spell wholly within range of the caster.
PREDATORY: This endless spell is a predatory endless spell. It can be moved up to 8" and can fly.Morbid Detonation: As it gorges itself on magic and the howling spirits of the dead, the maelstrom eventually collapses under the weight of its own existence in a nova of devastating energy.
After this endless spell is summoned, place a D6 beside it with the ‘1’ facing up. Each time a spell is successfully cast by a unit within 12" of this endless spell and not unbound, after the effects of the spell have been resolved, increase the value of the dice beside this endless spell by 1 (to a maximum of 6). In addition, each time a model is slain within 12" of this endless spell, increase the value of the dice beside this endless spell by 1 (to a maximum of 6). At the end of a phase in which the dice beside this endless spell reaches ‘6’, this endless spell is removed from play.
When this endless spell is removed from play, if the dice beside it is a 6, this endless spell explodes. When it explodes, each unit within 12" of this endless spell suffers D3 mortal wounds. WIZARD HEROES suffer 3 mortal wounds instead of D3.
