Rain Spells [Transformation Manipulations]

Drizzle Rain
Steady Rain
Heavy Rain
Tropical Downpour

These area-effect spells cause a downpour (of water) in an area. Against
certain targets elemental effects can occur, see GrimII p.112. This is
the only form of damage that occurs with these spells. If the area-effect
has no targets to be affected by elemental effects (e.g. a garden bed),
then the caster has a target of 4.

Type: Physical
Range: LOS
Target: Body (R) / 4
Damage (For Elemental Effects only): Drizzle L,
Steady M,
Heavy S,
Tropical Downpour D
Duration: Sustained
Drain: Drizzle (F/2)L
Steady (F/2)M
Heavy (F/2)S
Tropical Downpour (F/2)D

[Notes: I'm *really* open to suggestions to what the drain codes should
be for these spells. I tried to figure it out from the Grimoire, but
it's getting late and... :-) So I did a 'best guess'.]
