Originally brought to Mystara by the d'Ambreville family, freeze flame has been widely available through the Great School of Magic for generations.

The spell allows the caster to render a single area of flame or fire harmless for the duration of the spell. The flame may be spawned by multiple burning objects, but must form, essentially, one large area of flame, such as that of a pyre or fireplace.

For the duration of the spell, anyone in contact with the flame will suffer less damage than normal. The reduction is 1d6/level up to 5d6 at fifth level. The spell cannot heal damage, though, so any reduction in damage greater than the damage potentially caused by the fire is ignored.
