Full Description
Transmutation 1 standard action PRPG-O
None - Yes (harmless) Drd 2, Plant 2, Rgr 2 V, S, DF
10 min./level Touch 1 hour
Target: Living creature touched

Grants +2 (or higher) enhancement to natural armor.

Barkskin toughens a creature's skin. The effect grants a +2 enhancement bonus to the creature's existing natural armor bonus. This enhancement bonus increases by 1 for every three caster levels above 3rd, to a maximum of +5 at 12th level.

The enhancement bonus provided by barkskin stacks with the target's natural armor bonus, but not with other enhancement bonuses to natural armor. A creature without natural armor has an effective natural armor bonus of +0.

Bear's Endurance
Transmutation 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates (harmless) - Yes Adp 2, Clr 2, Drd 2, Rgr 2, Sor/Wiz 2 V, S, M/DF
1 min./level Touch 5 minutes
Target: Creature touched

Subject gains +4 to Con for 1 min./level.

The affected creature gains greater vitality and stamina. The spell grants the subject a +4 enhancement bonus to Constitution, which adds the usual benefits to hit points, Fortitude saves, Constitution checks, and so forth. Hit points gained by a temporary increase in Constitution score are not temporary hit points. They go away when the subject's Constitution drops back to normal. They are not lost first as temporary hit points are.

Cat's Grace
Transmutation 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates (harmless) - Yes Adp 2, Brd 2, Drd 2, Rgr 2, Sor/Wiz 2 V, S, M
1 min./level Touch 5 minutes
Target: Creature touched

Subject gains +4 to Dex for 1 min./level.

The transmuted creature becomes more graceful, agile, and coordinated. The spell grants a +4 enhancement bonus to Dexterity, adding the usual benefits to AC, Reflex saves, and other uses of the Dexterity modifier.

Cure Light Wounds
Conjuration (Healing) 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will half (harmless); see text - Yes (harmless); see text Adp 1, Brd 1, Clr 1, Drd 1, Healing 1, Pal 1, Rgr 2 V, S
Instant Touch General
Target: Creature touched

Cures 1d8 damage + 1/level (max +5).

When laying your hand upon a living creature, you channel positive energy that cures 1d8 points of damage + 1 point per caster level (maximum +5). Since undead are powered by negative energy, this spell deals damage to them instead of curing their wounds. An undead creature can apply spell resistance, and can attempt a Will save to take half damage.

Hold Animal
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates; see text - Yes Animal 2, Drd 2, Rgr 2 V, S, F/DF
1 round/level (D); see text Medium General
Target: One animal

Paralyzes one animal for 1 round/level.

This spell functions like hold person except that it affects an animal instead of a humanoid.

Owl's Wisdom
Transmutation 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates (harmless) - Yes Clr 2, Drd 2, Pal 2, Rgr 2, Sor/Wiz 2 V, S, M/DF
1 min./level Touch 5 minutes
Target: Creature touched

Subject gains +4 to Wis for 1 min./level.

The transmuted creature becomes wiser. The spell grants a +4 enhancement bonus to Wisdom, adding the usual benefit to Wisdom-related skills. Clerics, druids, and rangers (and other Wisdom-based spellcasters) who receive owl's wisdom do not gain any additional bonus spells for the increased Wisdom, but the save DCs for their spells increase.

Protection from Energy
Abjuration 1 standard action PRPG-O
Fortitude negates (harmless) - Yes (harmless) Clr 3, Drd 3, Luck 3, Protection 3, Rgr 2, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, DF
10 min./level or until discharged Touch 1 hour
Target: Creature touched

Absorbs 12 points/level of damage from one kind of energy.

Protection from energy grants temporary immunity to the type of energy you specify when you cast it (acid, cold, electricity, fire, or sonic). When the spell absorbs 12 points per caster level of energy damage (to a maximum of 120 points at 10th level), it is discharged.

Protection from energy overlaps (and does not stack with) resist energy If a character is warded by protection from energy and resist energy the protection spell absorbs damage until its power is exhausted.

Transmutation 3 rounds PRPG-O
None - No Drd 3, Rgr 2 V, S, DF
Until triggered or broken Touch 12 hours
Target: Touched nonmagical circle of vine, rope, or thong with a 2 ft. diameter + 2 ft./level

Creates a magic booby trap.

This spell enables you to make a snare that functions as a magic trap. The snare can be made from any supple vine, a thong, or a rope. When you cast snare upon it, the cordlike object blends with its surroundings (DC 23 Perception check for a character with the trapfinding ability to locate). One end of the snare is tied in a loop that contracts around one or more of the limbs of any creature stepping inside the circle.

If a strong and supple tree is nearby, the snare can be fastened to it. The spell causes the tree to bend, straightening when the loop is triggered, dealing 1d6 points of damage to the creature trapped and lifting it off the ground by the trapped limb or limbs. If no such tree is available, the cordlike object tightens around the creature, dealing no damage but causing it to be entangled.

The snare is magical. To escape, a trapped creature must make a DC 23 Escape Artist check or a DC 23 Strength check that is a full-round action. The snare has AC 7 and 5 hit points. A successful escape from the snare breaks the loop and ends the spell.

Speak with Plants
Divination 1 standard action PRPG-O
- Brd 4, Drd 3, Rgr 2 V, S
1 min./level Personal 30 minutes
Target: You

You can talk to plants and plant creatures.

You can communicate with normal plants and plant creatures, and can ask questions of and receive answers from them. A normal plant's sense of its surroundings is limited, so it won't be able to give (or recognize) detailed descriptions of creatures or answer questions about events outside its immediate vicinity. The spell doesn't make plant creatures any more friendly or cooperative than normal. Furthermore, wary and cunning plant creatures are likely to be terse and evasive, while the more stupid ones may make inane comments. If a plant creature is friendly, it may do some favor or service for you.

Spike Growth
Transmutation 1 standard action PRPG-O
Reflex partial - Yes Drd 3, Rgr 2 V, S, DF
1 hour/level (D) Medium 6 hours
Area: One 20-ft. square/level

Creatures in area take 1d4 damage, may be slowed.

Any ground-covering vegetation in the spell's area becomes very hard and sharply pointed without changing its appearance.

In areas of bare earth, roots and rootlets act in the same way. Typically, spike growth can be cast in any outdoor setting except open water, ice, heavy snow, sandy desert, or bare stone. Any creature moving on foot into or through the spell's area takes 1d4 points of piercing damage for each 5 feet of movement through the spiked area.

Any creature that takes damage from this spell must also succeed on a Reflex save or suffer injuries to its feet and legs that slow its land speed by half. This speed penalty lasts for 24 hours or until the injured creature receives a cure spell (which also restores lost hit points). Another character can remove the penalty by taking 10 minutes to dress the injuries and succeeding on a Heal check against the spell's save DC.

Magic traps are hard to detect. A rogue (only) can use the Perception skill to find a spike growth . The DC is 25 + spell level, or DC 28 for spike growth (or DC 27 for spike growth cast by a ranger).Spike growth can't be disabled with the Disable Device skill.

Storm giant

This spell summons to your side a natural creature (typically an animal, fey, magical beast, outsider with the elemental subtype, or a giant). The summoned ally 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 as you command.

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 that have expensive material components (such as wish ).

The spell conjures one of the creatures from the 1st Level list on Table 10–2. You choose which kind of creature to summon, and you can change that choice each time you cast the spell. All the creatures on the table are neutral unless otherwise noted.

When you use a summoning spell to summon a creature with an alignment or elemental subtype, it is a spell of that type. All creatures summoned with this spell without alignment subtypes 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 as summon nature's ally I except that you summon one 2nd-level creature or 1d3 1st-level creatures of the same kind.

Wind Wall
Evocation [Air] 1 standard action PRPG-O
None; see text - Yes Air 2, Clr 3, Drd 3, Rgr 2, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M/DF
1 round/level Medium General
Effect: Wall up to 10 ft./level long and 5 ft./level high (S)

Deflects arrows, smaller creatures, and gases.

An invisible vertical curtain of wind appears. It is 2 feet thick and of considerable strength. It is a roaring blast sufficient to blow away any bird smaller than an eagle, or tear papers and similar materials from unsuspecting hands. (A Reflex save allows a creature to maintain its grasp on an object.) Tiny and Small flying creatures cannot pass through the barrier. Loose materials and cloth garments fly upward when caught in a wind wall. Arrows and bolts are deflected upward and miss, while any other normal ranged weapon passing through the wall has a 30% miss chance. (A giant-thrown boulder, a siege engine projectile, and other massive ranged weapons are not affected.) Gases, most gaseous breath weapons, and creatures in gaseous form cannot pass through the wall (although it is no barrier to incorporeal creatures).

While the wall must be vertical, you can shape it in any continuous path along the ground that you like. It is possible to create cylindrical or square wind walls to enclose specific points.
