Blink
Transmutation 1 standard action PRPG-O
- Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S
1 round/level (D) Personal General
Target: You

You randomly vanish and reappear for 1 round/level.

You "blink" quickly back and forth between the Material Plane and the Ethereal Plane and look as though you're winking in and out of reality at random. Blink has several effects, as follows.

Physical attacks against you have a 50% miss chance, and the Blind-Fight feat doesn't help opponents, since you're ethereal and not merely invisible. If the attack is capable of striking ethereal creatures, the miss chance is only 20% (for concealment).

If the attacker can see invisible creatures, the miss chance is also only 20%. (For an attacker who can both see and strike ethereal creatures, there is no miss chance.) Likewise, your own attacks have a 20% miss chance, since you sometimes go ethereal just as you are about to strike.

Any individually targeted spell has a 50% chance to fail against you while you're blinking unless your attacker can target invisible, ethereal creatures. Your own spells have a 20% chance to activate just as you go ethereal, in which case they typically do not affect the Material Plane (but they might affect targets on the Ethereal Plane).

While blinking, you take only half damage from area attacks (but full damage from those that extend onto the Ethereal Plane). Although you are only partially visible, you are not considered invisible and targets retain their Dexterity bonus to AC against your attacks. You do receive a +2 bonus on attack rolls made against enemies that cannot see invisible creatures.

You take only half damage from falling, since you fall only while you are material.

While blinking, you can step through (but not see through) solid objects. For each 5 feet of solid material you walk through, there is a 50% chance that you become material. If this occurs, you are shunted off to the nearest open space and take 1d6 points of damage per 5 feet so traveled.

Since you spend about half your time on the Ethereal Plane, you can see and even attack ethereal creatures. You interact with ethereal creatures roughly the same way you interact with material ones.

An ethereal creature is invisible, incorporeal, and capable of moving in any direction, even up or down. As an incorporeal creature, you can move through solid objects, including living creatures.

An ethereal creature can see and hear the Material Plane, but everything looks gray and insubstantial. Sight and hearing on the Material Plane are limited to 60 feet.

Force effects and abjurations affect you normally. Their effects extend onto the Ethereal Plane from the Material Plane, but not vice versa. An ethereal creature can't attack material creatures, and spells you cast while ethereal affect only other ethereal things. Certain material creatures or objects have attacks or effects that work on the Ethereal Plane. Treat other ethereal creatures and objects as material.

Charm Monster
Enchantment (Charm) [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Brd 3, Charm 5, Sor/Wiz 4 V, S
1 day/level Close 1 hour
Target: One living creature

Makes monster believe it is your ally.

This spell functions like charm person, except that the effect is not restricted by creature type or size.

Clairaudience/Clairvoyance
Divination (Scrying) 10 minutes PRPG-O
None - No Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, F/DF
1 min./level (D) Long General
Effect: Magical sensor

Hear or see at a distance for 1 min./level.

Clairaudience/clairvoyance creates an invisible magical sensor at a specific location that enables you to hear or see (your choice) almost as if you were there. You don't need line of sight or line of effect, but the locale must be known—a place familiar to you, or an obvious one. Once you have selected the locale, the sensor doesn't move, but you can rotate it in all directions to view the area as desired. Unlike other scrying spells, this spell does not allow magically or supernaturally enhanced senses to work through it. If the chosen locale is magically dark, you see nothing. If it is naturally pitch black, you can see in a 10-foot radius around the center of the spell's effect. Clairaudience/clairvoyance functions only on the plane of existence you are currently occupying.

Confusion
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Brd 3, Madness 4, Sor/Wiz 4, Trickery 4 V, S, M/DF
1 round/level Medium General
Targets: All creatures in a 15-ft.-radius burst

Subjects behave oddly for 1 round/level.

This spell causes confusion in the targets, making them unable to determine their actions. Roll on the following table at the start of each subject's turn each round to see what it does in that round.

d%Behavior
01–25Act normally
26–50Do nothing but babble incoherently
51–75Deal 1d8 points of damage + Str modifier to self with item in hand
76–100Attack nearest creature (for this purpose, a familiar counts as part of the subject's self)

A confused character who can't carry out the indicated action does nothing but babble incoherently. Attackers are not at any special advantage when attacking a confused character. Any confused character who is attacked automatically attacks its attackers on its next turn, as long as it is still confused when its turn comes. Note that a confused character will not make attacks of opportunity against any creature that it is not already devoted to attacking (either because of its most recent action or because it has just been attacked).

Crushing Despair
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 4 V, S, M
1 min./level 30 ft. General
Area: Cone-shaped burst

Subjects take 2 on attack rolls, damage rolls, saves, and checks.

An invisible cone of despair causes great sadness in the subjects. Each affected creature takes a –2 penalty on attack rolls, saving throws, ability checks, skill checks, and weapon damage rolls.

Crushing despair counters and dispels good hope .

Cure Serious Wounds
Conjuration (Healing) 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will half (harmless); see text - Yes (harmless); see text Adp 3, Brd 3, Clr 3, Drd 4, Healing 3, Pal 4, Rgr 4 V, S
Instant Touch General
Target: Creature touched

Cures 3d8 damage + 1/level (max +15).

This spell functions like cure light wounds, except that it cures 3d8 points of damage + 1 point per caster level (maximum +15).

Daylight
Evocation [Light] 1 standard action PRPG-O
None - No Adp 3, Brd 3, Clr 3, Drd 3, Pal 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S
10 min./level (D) Touch 4 hours
Target: Object touched

60-ft. radius of bright light.

You touch an object when you cast this spell, causing the object to shed bright light in a 60-foot radius. This illumination increases the light level for an additional 60 feet by one step (darkness becomes dim light, dim light becomes normal light, and normal light becomes bright light). Creatures that take penalties in bright light take them while within the 60-foot radius of this magical light. Despite its name, this spell is not the equivalent of daylight for the purposes of creatures that are damaged or destroyed by such light.

If daylight is cast on a small object that is then placed inside or under a light-proof covering, the spell's effects are blocked until the covering is removed.

Daylight brought into an area of magical darkness (or vice versa) is temporarily negated, so that the otherwise prevailing light conditions exist in the overlapping areas of effect.

Daylight counters or dispels any darkness spell of equal or lower level, such as darkness.

Deep Slumber
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 round PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M
1 min./level Close General
Area: One or more living creatures within a 10-ft.-radius burst

Puts 10 HD of creatures to sleep.

This spell functions like sleep except that it affects 10 HD of targets.

Dispel Magic
Abjuration 1 standard action PRPG-O
None - No Brd 3, Clr 3, Drd 4, Magic 3, Pal 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S
Instant Medium General
Target or Area: One spellcaster, creature, or object

Cancels one magical spell or effect.

You can use dispel magic to end one ongoing spell that has been cast on a creature or object, to temporarily suppress the magical abilities of a magic item, or to counter another spellcaster's spell. A dispelled spell ends as if its duration had expired. Some spells, as detailed in their descriptions, can't be defeated by dispel magic . Dispel magic can dispel (but not counter) spell-like effects just as it does spells. The effect of a spell with an instantaneous duration can't be dispelled, because the magical effect is already over before the dispel magic can take effect.

You choose to use dispel magic in one of two ways: a targeted dispel or a counterspell.

Targeted Dispel : One object, creature, or spell is the target of the dispel magic spell. You make one dispel check (1d20 + your caster level) and compare that to the spell with highest caster level (DC = 11 + the spell's caster level). If successful, that spell ends. If not, compare the same result to the spell with the next highest caster level. Repeat this process until you have dispelled one spell affecting the target, or you have failed to dispel every spell.

For example, a 7th-level caster casts dispel magic, targeting a creature affected by stoneskin (caster level 12th) and fly (caster level 6th). The caster level check results in a 19. This check is not high enough to end the stoneskin (which would have required a 23 or higher), but it is high enough to end the fly (which only required a 17). Had the dispel check resulted in a 23 or higher, the stoneskin would have been dispelled, leaving the fly intact. Had the dispel check been a 16 or less, no spells would have been affected.

You can also use a targeted dispel to specifically end one spell affecting the target or one spell affecting an area (such as a wall of fire ). You must name the specific spell effect to be targeted in this way. If your caster level check is equal to or higher than the DC of that spell, it ends. No other spells or effects on the target are dispelled if your check is not high enough to end the targeted effect.

If you target an object or creature that is the effect of an ongoing spell (such as a monster summoned by summon monster ), you make a dispel check to end the spell that conjured the object or creature.

If the object that you target is a magic item, you make a dispel check against the item's caster level (DC = 11 + the item's caster level). If you succeed, all the item's magical properties are suppressed for 1d4 rounds, after which the item recovers its magical properties. A suppressed item becomes nonmagical for the duration of the effect. An interdimensional opening (such as a bag of holding ) is temporarily closed. A magic item's physical properties are unchanged: A suppressed magic sword is still a sword (a masterwork sword, in fact). Artifacts and deities are unaffected by mortal magic such as this.

You automatically succeed on your dispel check against any spell that you cast yourself.

Counterspell : When dispel magic is used in this way, the spell targets a spellcaster and is cast as a counterspell. Unlike a true counterspell, however, dispel magic may not work; you must make a dispel check to counter the other spellcaster's spell.

Displacement
Illusion (Glamer) 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates (harmless) - Yes (harmless) Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, M
1 round/level (D) Touch General
Target: Creature touched

Attacks miss subject 50% of the time.

The subject of this spell appears to be about 2 feet away from its true location. The creature benefits from a 50% miss chance as if it had total concealment. Unlike actual total concealment, displacement does not prevent enemies from targeting the creature normally. True seeing reveals its true location and negates the miss chance.

Fear
Necromancy [Fear] [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will partial - Yes Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 4 V, S, M
1 round/level or 1 round; see text 30 ft. General
Area: Cone-shaped burst

Subjects within cone flee for 1 round/level.

An invisible cone of terror causes each living creature in the area to become panicked unless it succeeds on a Will save. If cornered, a panicked creature begins cowering. If the Will save succeeds, the creature is shaken for 1 round.

Gaseous Form
Transmutation 1 standard action PRPG-O
None - No Air 3, Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 3 S, M/DF
2 min./level (D) Touch 5 minutes
Target: Willing corporeal creature touched

Subject becomes insubstantial and can fly slowly.

The subject and all its gear become insubstantial, misty, and translucent. Its material armor (including natural armor) becomes worthless, though its size, Dexterity, deflection bonuses, and armor bonuses from force effects still apply. The subject gains DR 10/magic and becomes immune to poison, sneak attacks, and critical hits. It can't attack or cast spells with verbal, somatic, material, or focus components while in gaseous form. This does not rule out the use of certain spells that the subject may have prepared using the feats Silent Spell, Still Spell, and Eschew Materials. The subject also loses supernatural abilities while in gaseous form. If it has a touch spell ready to use, that spell is discharged harmlessly when the gaseous form spell takes effect.

A gaseous creature can't run, but it can fly at a speed of 10 feet and automatically succeeds on all Fly skill checks. It can pass through small holes or narrow openings, even mere cracks, with all it was wearing or holding in its hands, as long as the spell persists. The creature is subject to the effects of wind, and it can't enter water or other liquid. It also can't manipulate objects or activate items, even those carried along with its gaseous form. Continuously active items remain active, though in some cases their effects may be moot.

Lesser Geas
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Language-dependent] [Mind-affecting] 1 round PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 4 V
1 day/level or until discharged (D) Close General
Target: One living creature with 7 HD or less

Commands subject of 7 HD or less.

A lesser geas places a magical command on a creature to carry out some service or to refrain from some action or course of activity, as desired by you. The creature must have 7 or fewer HD and be able to understand you. While a geas cannot compel a creature to kill itself or perform acts that would result in certain death, it can cause almost any other course of activity.

The geased creature must follow the given instructions until the geas is completed, no matter how long it takes.

If the instructions involve some open-ended task that the recipient cannot complete through his own actions, the spell remains in effect for a maximum of 1 day per caster level. A clever recipient can subvert some instructions.

If the subject is prevented from obeying the lesser geas for 24 hours, it takes a –2 penalty to each of its ability scores. Each day, another –2 penalty accumulates, up to a total of –8. No ability score can be reduced to less than 1 by this effect. The ability score penalties are removed 24 hours after the subject resumes obeying the lesser geas.

A lesser geas (and all ability score penalties) can be ended by break enchantment, limited wish, remove curse, miracle, or wish . Dispel magic does not affect a lesser geas .

Glibness
Transmutation 1 standard action PRPG-O
- Brd 3 S
10 min./level (D) Personal 4 hours
Target: You

You gain +20 bonus on Bluff checks, and your lies can escape magical discernment.

Your speech becomes fluent and more believable, causing those who hear you to believe every word you say. You gain a +20 bonus on Bluff checks made to convince another of the truth of your words. This bonus doesn't apply to other uses of the Bluff skill, such as feinting in combat, creating a diversion to hide, or communicating a hidden message via innuendo.

If a magical effect is used against you that would detect your lies or force you to speak the truth, the user of the effect must succeed on a caster level check (1d20 + caster level) against a DC of 15 + your caster level to succeed. Failure means the effect does not detect your lies or force you to speak only the truth.

Good Hope
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates (harmless) - Yes (harmless) Brd 3 V, S
1 min./level Medium 30 minutes
Targets: One living creature/level, no two of which may be more than 30 ft. apart

Subjects gain +2 on attack rolls, damage rolls, saves, and checks.

This spell instills powerful hope in the subjects. Each affected creature gains a +2 morale bonus on saving throws, attack rolls, ability checks, skill checks, and weapon damage rolls.

Good hope counters and dispels crushing despair

Haste
Transmutation 1 standard action PRPG-O
Fortitude negates (harmless) - Yes (harmless) Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M
1 round/level Close General
Targets: One creature/level, no two of which can be more than 30 ft. apart

One creature/level moves faster, receives +1 on attack rolls, AC, and Reflex saves.

The transmuted creatures move and act more quickly than normal. This extra speed has several effects.

When making a full attack action, a hasted creature may make one extra attack with any weapon he is holding. The attack is made using the creature's full base attack bonus, plus any modifiers appropriate to the situation. (This effect is not cumulative with similar effects, such as that provided by a speed weapon, nor does it actually grant an extra action, so you can't use it to cast a second spell or otherwise take an extra action in the round.)

A hasted creature gains a +1 bonus on attack rolls and a +1 dodge bonus to AC and Reflex saves. Any condition that makes you lose your Dexterity bonus to Armor Class (if any) also makes you lose dodge bonuses.

All of the hasted creature's modes of movement (including land movement, burrow, climb, fly, and swim) increase by 30 feet, to a maximum of twice the subject's normal speed using that form of movement. This increase counts as an enhancement bonus, and it affects the creature's jumping distance as normal for increased speed. Multiple haste effects don't stack. Haste dispels and counters slow

Illusory Script (M)
Illusion (Phantasm) [Mind-affecting] 1 minute per page PRPG-O
Will negates; see text - Yes Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M
One day/level (D) Touch General
Target: One touched object weighing no more than 10 lbs.
Materials: Lead-based ink worth 50 gp

Only select creatures can read text.

You write instructions or other information on parchment, paper, or any suitable writing material. The illusory script appears to be some form of foreign or magical writing. Only the person (or people) designated by you at the time of the casting can read the writing; it's unintelligible to any other character.

Any unauthorized creature attempting to read the script triggers a potent illusory effect and must make a saving throw. A successful saving throw means the creature can look away with only a mild sense of disorientation. Failure means the creature is subject to a suggestion implanted in the script by you at the time the illusory script spell was cast. The suggestion lasts only 30 minutes. Typical suggestions include "Close the book and leave," "Forget the existence of this note," and so forth. If successfully dispelled by dispel magic the illusory script and its secret message disappear. The hidden message can be read by a combination of the true seeing spell with the read magic or comprehend languages spell.

Invisibility Sphere
Illusion (Glamer) 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates (harmless) or Will negates (harmless, object) - Yes (harmless) or yes (harmless, object) Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M/DF
1 min./level (D) Personal or touch General
Area: 10-ft.-radius emanation around the creature

Makes everyone within 10 ft. invisible.

This spell functions like invisibility except that this spell confers invisibility upon all creatures within 10 feet of the recipient at the time the spell is cast. The center of the effect is mobile with the recipient.

Those affected by this spell can see each other and themselves as if unaffected by the spell. Any affected creature moving out of the area becomes visible, but creatures moving into the area after the spell is cast do not become invisible. Affected creatures (other than the recipient) who attack negate the invisibility only for themselves. If the spell recipient attacks, the invisibility sphere ends.

Major Image
Illusion (Figment) 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will disbelief (if interacted with) - No Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, F
Concentration + 3 rounds Long General
Effect: Visual figment that cannot extend beyond four 10-ft. cubes + one 10-ft. cube/level (S)

As silent image, plus sound, smell, and thermal effects.

This spell functions like silent image except that sound, smell, and thermal illusions are included in the spell effect. While concentrating, you can move the image within the range.

The image disappears when struck by an opponent unless you cause the illusion to react appropriately.

Phantom Steed
Conjuration (Creation) 10 minutes PRPG-O
None - No Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S
1 hour/level (D) 0 ft. 6 hours
Effect: One quasi-real, horselike creature

Magic horse appears for 1 hour/level.

You conjure a Large, quasi-real, horselike creature (the exact coloration can be customized as you wish). It can be ridden only by you or by the one person for whom you specifically created the mount. A phantom steed has a black head and body, gray mane and tail, and smoke-colored, insubstantial hooves that make no sound. It has what seems to be a saddle, bit, and bridle. It does not fight, but animals shun it and refuse to attack it.

The mount is AC 18 (–1 size, +4 natural armor, +5 Dex) and 7 hit points + 1 hit point per caster level. If it loses all its hit points, the phantom steed disappears. A phantom steed has a speed of 20 feet per two caster levels, to a maximum of 100 feet at 10th level. It can bear its rider's weight plus up to 10 pounds per caster level.

These mounts gain certain powers according to caster level. A mount's abilities include those of mounts of lower caster levels.

8th Level : The mount can ride over sandy, muddy, or even swampy ground without difficulty or decrease in speed.

10th Level : The mount can use water walk at will (as the spell, no action required to activate this ability).

12th Level : The mount can use air walk at will (as the spell, no action required to activate this ability) for up to 1 round at a time, after which it falls to the ground.

14th Level : The mount can fly at its speed with a bonus on Fly skill checks equal to your caster level.

Remove Curse
Abjuration 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates (harmless) - Yes (harmless) Adp 3, Brd 3, Clr 3, Liberation 3, Pal 3, Sor/Wiz 4 V, S
Instant Touch General
Target: Creature or object touched

Frees object or person from curse.

Remove curse can remove all curses on an object or a creature. If the target is a creature, you must make a caster level check (1d20 + caster level) against the DC of each curse affecting the target. Success means that the curse is removed. Remove curse does not remove the curse from a cursed shield, weapon, or suit of armor, although a successful caster level check enables the creature afflicted with any such cursed item to remove and get rid of it.

Remove curse counters and dispels bestow curse .

Scrying (F)
Divination (Scrying) 1 hour PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Brd 3, Clr 5, Drd 4, Sor/Wiz 4 V, S, M/DF, F
1 min./level See text General
Effect: Magical sensor
Focus: A silver mirror worth 1,000 gp

Spies on subject from a distance.

You can observe a creature at any distance. If the subject succeeds on a Will save, the spell fails. The difficulty of the save depends on how well your knowledge of the subject and what sort of physical connection (if any) you have to that creature. Furthermore, if the subject is on another plane, it gets a +5 bonus on its Will save.

KnowledgeWill Save Modifier
None*+10
Secondhand (you have heard of the subject)+5
Firsthand (you have met the subject)+0
Familiar (you know the subject well)–5
ConnentionWill Save Modifier
Likeness or picture–2
Possession or garment–4
Body part, lock of hair, bit of nail, etc.–10
*You must have some sort of connection (see below) to a creature of which you have no knowledge.

If the save fails, you can see and hear the subject and its surroundings (approximately 10 feet in all directions of the subject). If the subject moves, the sensor follows at a speed of up to 150 feet.

As with all divination (scrying) spells, the sensor has your full visual acuity, including any magical effects. In addition, the following spells have a 5% chance per caster level of operating through the sensor: detect chaos, detect evil, detect good, detect law, detect magic, and message .

If the save succeeds, you can't attempt to scry on that subject again for at least 24 hours.

Sculpt Sound
Transmutation 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates (object) - Yes (object) Brd 3 V, S
1 hour/level (D) Close 6 hours
Targets: One creature or object/level, no two of which can be more than 30 ft. apart

Creates new sounds or changes existing ones into new sounds.

You can change the sounds that creatures or objects make. You can create sounds where none exist, deaden sounds, or transform sounds into other sounds. All affected creatures or objects must be transmuted in the same way. Once the transmutation is made, you cannot change it. You can change the qualities of sounds but cannot create words with which you are unfamiliar yourself.

A spellcaster whose voice is changed dramatically is unable to cast spells with verbal components.

Secret Page
Transmutation 10 minutes PRPG-O
None - No Brd 3, Rune 2, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M
Permanent Touch 12 hours
Target: Page touched, up to 3 sq. ft. in size

Changes one page to hide its real content.

Secret page alters the contents of a page so that it appears to be something entirely different. The text of a spell can be changed to show another spell of equal or lower level known by the caster. This spell cannot be used to change a spell contained on a scroll, but it can be used to hide a scroll. Explosive runes or sepia snake sigil can be cast upon the secret page.

A comprehend languages spell alone cannot reveal a secret page 's contents. You are able to reveal the original contents by speaking a special word. You can then peruse the actual page and return it to its secret page form at will. You can also remove the spell by double repetition of the special word. A detect magic spell reveals dim magic on the page in question but does not reveal its true contents. True seeing reveals the presence of the hidden material but does not reveal the contents unless cast in combination with comprehend languages A secret page spell can be dispelled, and the hidden writings can be destroyed by means of an erase spell.

See Invisibility
Divination 1 standard action PRPG-O
- Adp 2, Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 2 V, S, M
10 min./level (D) Personal 4 hours
Target: You

Reveals invisible creatures or objects.

You can see any objects or beings that are invisible within your range of vision, as well as any that are ethereal, as if they were normally visible. Such creatures are visible to you as translucent shapes, allowing you easily to discern the difference between visible, invisible, and ethereal creatures.

The spell does not reveal the method used to obtain invisibility. It does not reveal illusions or enable you to see through opaque objects. It does not reveal creatures who are simply hiding, concealed, or otherwise hard to see.

See invisibility can be made permanent with a permanency spell.

Sepia Snake Sigil (M)
Conjuration (Creation) [Force] 10 minutes PRPG-O
Reflex negates - No Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M
Permanent or until discharged; until released or 1d4 days + 1 day/level; see text Touch 24 hours
Target: One touched book or written work
Materials: Powdered amber worth 500 gp and a snake scale

Creates text symbol that immobilizes reader.

You cause a small symbol to appear in the text of a written work. The text containing the symbol must be at least 25 words long. When anyone reads the text containing the symbol, the sepia snake sigil springs into being, transforming into a large sepia serpent that strikes at the reader, provided there is line of effect between the symbol and the reader.

Simply seeing the enspelled text is not sufficient to trigger the spell; the subject must deliberately read it. The target is entitled to a save to evade the snake's strike. If it succeeds, the sepia snake dissipates in a flash of brown light accompanied by a puff of dun-colored smoke and a loud noise. If the target fails its save, it is engulfed in a shimmering amber field of force and immobilized until released, either at your command or when 1d4 days + 1 day per caster level have elapsed.

While trapped in the amber field of force, the subject does not age, breathe, grow hungry, sleep, or regain spells. It is preserved in a state of suspended animation, unaware of its surroundings. It can be damaged by outside forces (and perhaps even killed), since the field provides no protection against physical injury. However, a dying subject does not lose hit points or become stable until the spell ends.

The hidden sigil cannot be detected by normal observation, and detect magic reveals only that the entire text is magical.

A dispel magic can remove the sigil. An erase spell destroys the entire page of text.

Sepia snake sigil can be cast in combination with other spells that hide or garble text, such as secret page

Slow
Transmutation 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M
1 round/level Close General
Targets: One creature/level, no two of which can be more than 30 ft. apart

One subject/level takes only one action/round, 1 to AC, Reflex saves, and attack rolls.

An affected creature moves and attacks at a drastically slowed rate. Creatures affected by this spell are staggered and can take only a single move action or standard action each turn, but not both (nor may it take full-round actions). Additionally, it takes a –1 penalty on attack rolls, AC, and Reflex saves. A slowed creature moves at half its normal speed (round down to the next 5-foot increment), which affects the creature's jumping distance as normal for decreased speed.

Multiple slow effects don't stack. Slow counters and dispels haste .

Speak with Animals
Divination 1 standard action PRPG-O
- Brd 3, Drd 1, Rgr 1 V, S
1 min./level Personal 30 minutes
Target: You

You can communicate with animals.

You can ask questions of and receive answers from animals, but the spell doesn't make them any more friendly than normal. Wary and cunning animals are likely to be terse and evasive, while the more stupid ones make inane comments. If an animal is friendly toward you, it may do some favor or service for you.

* This creature is summoned with the celestial template if you are good, or the fiendish template if you are evil; you may choose either if you are neutral.

This spell summons an extraplanar creature (typically an outsider, elemental, or magical beast native to another plane). It appears where you designate and acts immediately, on your turn. It attacks your opponents to the best of its ability. If you can communicate with the creature, you can direct it not to attack, to attack particular enemies, or to perform other actions. The spell conjures one of the creatures from the 1st Level list on Table 10–1. You choose which kind of creature to summon, and you can choose a different one each time you cast the spell.

A summoned monster cannot summon or otherwise conjure another creature, nor can it use any teleportation or planar travel abilities. Creatures cannot be summoned into an environment that cannot support them. Creatures summoned using this spell cannot use spells or spell-like abilities that duplicate spells with expensive material components (such as wish ).

When you use a summoning spell to summon a creature with an alignment or elemental subtype, it is a spell of that type. Creatures on Table 10–1 marked with an "*" are summoned with the celestial template, if you are good, and the fiendish template, if you are evil. If you are neutral, you may choose which template to apply to the creature. Creatures marked with an "*" always have an alignment that matches yours, regardless of their usual alignment. Summoning these creatures makes the summoning spell's type match your alignment.

This spell functions like summon monster I except that you can summon one creature from the 2nd-level list or 1d3 creatures of the same kind from the 1st-level list.

This spell functions like summon monster I except that you can summon one creature from the 3rd-level list, 1d3 creatures of the same kind from the 2nd-level list, or 1d4+1 creatures of the same kind from the 1st-level list.

Tiny Hut
Evocation [Force] 1 standard action PRPG-O
None - No Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M
2 hours/level (D) 20 ft. 12 hours
Effect: 20-ft.-radius sphere centered on your location

Creates shelter for 10 creatures.

You create an unmoving, opaque sphere of force of any color you desire around yourself. Half the sphere projects above the ground, and the lower hemisphere passes through the ground. As many as nine other Medium creatures can fit into the field with you; they can freely pass into and out of the hut without harming it. However, if you remove yourself from the hut, the spell ends.

The temperature inside the hut is 70° F if the exterior temperature is between 0° and 100° F. An exterior temperature below 0° or above 100° lowers or raises the interior temperature on a 1-degree-for-1 basis. The hut also provides protection against the elements, such as rain, dust, and sandstorms. The hut withstands any wind of less than hurricane force, but a hurricane (75+ mph wind speed) or greater force destroys it.

The interior of the hut is a hemisphere. You can illuminate it dimly upon command or extinguish the light as desired. Although the force field is opaque from the outside, it is transparent from within. Missiles, weapons, and most spell effects can pass through the hut without affecting it, although the occupants cannot be seen from outside the hut (they have total concealment).
