Fight Song. The Gahrahtay sing a chilling tune in harmony, and exudes a freezing mist for 100 feet in all directions, that moves with with the group. While concentrating, all surfaces within 100 feet are magically coated in a half-inch of ice. While coated in this manner, the surfaces are considered difficult terrain, except for the Gahrahtay, whose speed instead increases to 50 ft. At the beginning of its movement, a creature can attempt to ignore the difficult terrain and move its full speed, making a DC 15 Acrobatics check. On a success, the next 15 feet of movement is not considered difficult terrain. On a failure, the creature falls prone.

While on this ice, opportunity attacks against the Gahrahtay's have disadvantage.
