NAME ORIGIN
    A blizzard is a heavy and prolonged snowstorm covering a wide area. The word comes from the English word blizz, which entered American language in the late 1700's to describe a violent rainstorm. A tome is a very heavy, large or learned book. The word comes from the Greek tomos meaning "slice, piece, roll of paper, book" and derives from the word témnein meaning "to cut".
    In Final Fantasy Origins, all the magical tomes were called scrolls and this item was named Ice Scroll. Ice is the solid form of water, produced by freezing. The word comes from the Old English word is. A scroll is a long roll of parchment, paper, papyrus or other material used especially for writing a document. The word comes from the Old French escroe meaning "strip of parchment".
