The slow spell causes its subject to move with reduced speed, 
such that the victim may not attack or act as often as other 
people.  This spell can even influence the time required to 
complete spells, and how often other exclusive actions may be 
performed (such as healing items).

While the victim initially begins to move slowly through space
and time itself, it will slowly begin to start moving at normal
speed.  This causes the effect of slow to wear off gradually.

Slow dispels haste, and vice versa.
