Adjust thaumostat changes the temperature of items and environments, turning extreme temperatures into a pleasant 72 degrees. Items and material become pleasant to touch, and even a burning coal can be rendered perfecting safe to touch with bare hands for the duration of this spell, though it continues to burn. Items that have a way of heating or cooling themselves (e.g. burning coal, frost giant ice clubs, alchemical reagents, etc.) returning to their normal temperature once the spell's duration elapses. Other materials retain their neutral temperature until acted upon by an outside force. When cast upon an environment, the spell affects an area no bigger than 30 square feet + 5 square feet per level. Enclosed areas retain their adjusted temperature until acted upon by a outside force, while unenclosed areas return to their original temperatures when the the spell's duration elapses.

Note: Adjust thaumostat dispells and counters any spell that changes the temperature or an object of area (e.g. heat metal, control weather, etc.).
