Until triggered, the snow guardian is a pile of twigs and coal in snow. Once triggered, the snow swirls around the twigs and coal (and heart) and forms into a twisted and amorphous human-like shape. It will attack any intruders in the area. It acts as a divine creature of level equal to the spirit level. It has movement 15. It attacks with its snow fists for d10+1 points of damage. Its defense is 8, and it does not count as a creature for spells, such as mage bolt. Once every three rounds, it can form itself into a bitterly-cold blast of snow which does d8 damage to anyone in its path unless they make an evasion roll. The snow blast’s path is level yards long and 3 yards wide, and at the end of the round the guardian will reform at the end of the blast. During that round it is at a bonus of 4 to defense and reactions.

Any creature entering the protected area triggers the guardian’s attack. It will not follow intruders more than level yards beyond the area it is guarding, but unless defeated it will be able to reform to attack subsequent intruders, up to the end of the duration of the spirit manifestation.

The snow guardian’s heart is some representation of winter, such as a snow globe or ice castle. The heart may be re-used.
