Earth-Shaking Movement. Once on its turn after moving at least 2 meters on the ground, the zaratan can send a shock wave through the ground in a 20-meter radius circle centered on itself. That area becomes difficult terrain for 1 minute. Each creature on the ground that is concentrating must succeed on a Difficulty 25 Fortitude saving throw or the creature’s concentration is broken.

The shock wave deals 100 concussion damage to all structures in contact with the ground in the area. If a creature is near a structure that collapses, the creature might be buried; a creature within half the distance of the structure’s height must make a Difficulty 25 Reflex saving throw. On a failure, the creature takes 17 (5d6) bludgeoning damage, is knocked prone, and is trapped in the rubble. A trapped creature is restrained, requiring a successful Difficulty 25 Brawn or Nimbleness check to escape. Another creature within 1 meter of the buried creature can use an action to clear rubble and grant advantage on the check. If three creatures use their actions in this way, the check is an automatic success. On a success, the creature takes half as much damage and doesn’t fall prone or become trapped.

Legendary Resistance (3/day). If the zaratan fails a saving throw, it can choose to succeed instead.

Magic Weapons. The zaratan’s weapon attacks are magical.

Maneuvers. The zaratan uses maneuvers (maneuver save Difficulty 25). It has 21 stamina dice which are d8s, a dice limit of 7, regains all expended stamina dice when it finishes a long rest, and regains half its total stamina dice when it finishes a short rest. It knows the following maneuvers:

1 stamina die: bonecrush, debilitating crush, disorient, hammer spin, hammer through, hammering blow, knockback, rolling stone, smash, spring attack

2 stamina dice: stone bones, sturdy stance, tremoring strike

Siege Monster. The zaratan deals double damage to objects and structures (included in Earth-Shaking Movement).

Spellcasting. The zaratan uses Primal (Cha) to cast spells (spell save Difficulty 19, +10 to hit with spell attacks). It has 11 mana, a mana limit of 4, regains all expended mana when it finishes a long rest, and regains half its total mana when it finishes a short rest. It knows the following spells:

Spew Debris (Recharge 5–6). The zaratan exhales rocky debris in a 20-meter cone. Each creature in that area must make a Difficulty 25 Reflex saving throw. A creature takes 117 (26d8) bludgeoning damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. A creature that fails the save by 5 or more is knocked prone.

Spells

As an action, your skin transforms to be as hard as stone. You have a Soak of 2 or your Soak increases by 2 until the end of your next turn.

1 minute

As an action, you can touch a piece of nonmagical iron or steel that isn’t being worn or carried by another creature to cause it to grow into an object up to 2 kilos in weight, such as a dagger, sword, crowbar, or steel shield. This object remains in this form for the duration or until broken or destroyed, at which point it shrinks back to its original size and shape.

If you cast this spell multiple times, you can only cause up to two objects to grow, and you can dismiss such an effect on your turn (no action required).

At higher levels

The maximum weight of objects that the object can grow into with this spell increases when you reach 9th level (5 kilos) and 17th level (7 kilos).

As an action, choose a portion of dirt or stone that you can see within 5 meters and that fits within a 1-meter cube. You manipulate it in one of the following ways:

  • If you target an area of loose earth, you can hurl it. Make a ranged spell attack against a creature within 5 meters. On a hit, the target takes 1d8 bludgeoning damage. On a miss by 4 or less, the target takes half as much damage.
  • If you target an area of loose earth, you can instantaneously excavate it, move it along the ground, and deposit it up to 1 meter away. This movement doesn’t involve enough force to cause damage. This can be used to create a small foxhole with half cover.
  • You cause shapes, colors, or both to appear on the dirt or stone, spelling out words, creating images, or shaping patterns. The changes last for 1 hour.
  • If the dirt or stone you target is on the ground, you cause it to become difficult terrain. Alternatively, you can cause the ground to become normal terrain if it is already difficult terrain. This change lasts for 1 hour.

If you cast this spell multiple times, you can have no more than two of its non-instantaneous effects active at a time, and you can dismiss such an effect on your turn (no action required).

At higher levels

This spell’s damage increases by 1d8 when you reach 9th level (2d8) and 17th level (3d8).

As an action, you bombard an area with rocks. Each creature in a cone or line must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 3d8 bludgeoning damage and is pushed 2 meters away from you following the direction of the cone or line if it is Medium or smaller.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage and is pushed 4 meters away from you following the direction of the cone or line if it is Medium or smaller.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 1d8, push each creature an additional meter, and affect a creature of a larger size for each additional mana expended.

As an action, a pillar of stone bursts from a place on the ground that you can see within 20 meters. A pillar is a cylinder. The ground where a pillar appears must be wide enough for its diameter.

A pillar has 12 Defense, 2 Soak, and 30 Health. When reduced to 0 health, a pillar crumbles into rubble, which creates an area of difficult terrain that is twice as wide as its normal radius that lasts until the rubble is cleared. Each 1-meter diameter portion of the area requires at least 1 minute to clear by hand.

If a pillar is created under a creature, that creature must make a Reflex saving throw or be lifted by the pillar. A creature can choose to fail the save.

On a success, the creature moves up to 1 meter to the nearest space.

If a pillar is prevented from reaching its full height because of a ceiling or other obstacle, a creature on the pillar takes 4d6 bludgeoning damage and is restrained, pinched between the pillar and the obstacle. A creature restrained by a pillar can use an action to make a Brawn or Nimbleness check (its choice) against your spell save Difficulty.

On a success, the creature is no longer restrained and must either move off the pillar or fall off it.

Augment

You can create one additional pillar for each additional mana expended.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

As an action, yellow strips of magical energy lash out at a creature that you can touch or see within 100 meters which must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, its flying speed (if any) is reduced to 0 meters for the duration. An airborne creature affected by this spell descends at 20 meters per round until it reaches the ground or the spell ends.

Augment

You can target one additional creature for each additional mana expended. The creatures must be within 5 meters of each other when you target them.

As a reaction, which you use when you are hit by an attack that you can see, your skin turns as hard as stone. Until the start of your next turn, including against the triggering attack, choose one of the following options:

  • Roll a d4 and add the result to your Defense
  • You have resistance to bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage from attacks that aren’t adamantine You can do so after the roll but before any effects of the roll occur.
Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can expend 1 additional mana to trigger the spell when a creature that you can see within 10 meters is attacked. The attacked creature gains the benefits instead.

  • Stone’s Shelter. You can expend 2 additional mana to instead become encased in stone as the attack’s damage against you is halved. For 1 minute/mana or until you end this feature on your turn, a non magical dome of solid stone springs into existence around you. The dome forms up to 30 centimeters away from your body in all directions and is 30 centimeters thick.

    The dome is an object made of stone that can be damaged and thus breached. It has 16 Defense and 80 Health. Reducing the dome to 0 health destroys it.

As an action, you pull earth and stone from the ground, forming a large boulder and hurl it at a creature or object within 5 meters. The creature must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 4d8 bludgeoning damage and is pushed 2 meters away from you if it is Medium or smaller.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage and is pushed 4 meters away from you if it is Medium or smaller.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can increase the damage by 4d8, push the creature an additional meter, and affect a creature of a larger size for each additional mana expended.

  • Hard Rock. You can expend 1 additional mana to make the boulder sturdy and hard. The boulder is a 1-meter-radius sphere with 5 Defense, 3 Soak, and 20 Health. On a failure, the boulder lands at the creature or object’s feet or in its space if it is pushed. On a success, the GM determines where the boulder lands. When reduced to 0 health, the rock crumbles into rubble as the ground in that area becomes difficult terrain until cleared which takes at least 1 minute to clear by hand.

1 minute/mana

As an action, you lift three small to medium rocks or similar earthen objects within 2 meters, causing them to float around you. Until the spell ends, the rocks move with you, shifting position. You can dismiss the rocks on your turn (no action required).

Each time a creature targets you with an attack during the spell’s duration, roll 2d10 to determine whether the attack instead targets one of your rocks.

If you have three rocks, you must roll a 9 or higher to change the attack’s target to a rock. With two rocks, you must roll an 10 or higher. With one rock, you must roll an 11 or higher. A rock’s Defense equals 11 + half your Aptitude Bonus (min 1) + your Dexterity. If an attack hits a rock, the rock is destroyed.

A rock can be destroyed only by an attack that hits it. It ignores all other damage and effects. The spell ends when all three rocks are destroyed.

Augment

Orbital Defense. You can expend 1 additional mana to cast the spell as a reaction, which you use when you are hit by an attack.

3 hours/mana

As an action, you touch a willing creature who isn’t wearing armor, and a protective casing of stone surrounds it until the spell ends. The target’s Defense becomes 13 + half its Aptitude Bonus (min 1) + its Dexterity (max 4). The spell ends if the target dons armor or if you dismiss the spell on your turn (no action required).

As an action, a giant stalagmite lances up out of the ground within 10 meters. A stalagmite is cylinder that has a diameter of 1 meter and a height of up to 2 meters. If a stalagmite is created under a creature, it must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 2d10 piercing damage and is knocked prone if it is Medium or smaller.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

Stalagmites created by this spell persist. They can provide cover. A stalagmite has 12 Defense, 2 Soak, and 20 Health.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can increase the damage by 3d10, increase the stalagmite’s Defense by 2, and increase the stalagmite’s Health by 15 for each additional mana expended.

  • You can create an additional stalagmite for each additional mana expended. Additional augments to the damage increase the damage by 1d10, increase the stalagmite’s Defense by 1, and increase the stalagmite’s Health by 7 for each additional mana expended, instead of the normal increase. If a creature succeeds on the saving throw against one stalagmite, it can’t be knocked prone by other stalagmites from this casting of the spell.

As an action, a tremor ripples out from you along the ground. Each creature other than you on the ground in a sphere centered on you must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 1d8 bludgeoning damage and is knocked prone.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

If the ground in that area is loose earth or stone, it becomes difficult terrain until cleared, with each 1-meter diameter portion requiring at least 1 minute to clear by hand.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can increase the damage by 1d8 for each additional mana expended.

  • Tremors. You can expend 2 additional mana so it deals no damage, but the tremors around you are continuous. The duration changes to 1 minute/mana, concentration and the tremors erupt around you in an aura shaped as a sphere. Until the spell ends, the aura moves with you, centered on you.

concentration, 1 hour/mana

As two actions, you call forth an earth elemental which appears in an unoccupied space that you can see within 10 meters. The elemental is an earth elemental companion, using 2 resources. The creature has no mana or stamina dice, but you can infuse it with mana, psi, or stamina dice by expending mana up to your mana limit or psi up to double your mana limit. For each mana or 2 psi you expend, the elemental gains 1 mana or 2 stamina dice. The elemental is friendly to you and your companions, and it disappears when it drops to 0 health or when the spell ends.

When you cast the spell—and once on on each of your turns thereafter as an action—you can mentally command any creature you animated with this spell if the creature is within 50 meters of you (if you control multiple creatures, you can command any or all of them at the same time, issuing the same command to each one). You decide what actions the creature will take and where it will move during its next turn, or you can issue a general command, such as to guard a particular chamber or corridor. If you issue no commands, the creature only defends itself against hostile creatures. Once given an order, the creature continues to follow it until its task is complete.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can use an additional resource for each additional mana expended.

  • You can expend 2 additional mana to call forth another elemental.

concentration, 5 minutes/mana

As two actions, you become attuned to the earth around you. You gain a burrow speed of 5 meters and while you are underground, you gain a tremorsense of 5 meters for the duration.

If this spell ends while you are underground, you are trapped in the earth and begin suffocating.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

As two actions, a Large hand made from compacted soil rises in an unoccupied space on the ground that you can see within 5 meters. The hand lasts for the duration, and it moves at your command, mimicking the movements of your own hand.

When you cast the spell—and once on on each of your turns thereafter as an action—you can move the hand up to 5 meters and then cause one of the following effects with it.

Clenched Fist. The hand strikes a creature or object within 1 meter of it. Make a melee spell attack.

On a hit, it takes 6d6 bludgeoning damage.

On a miss by 4 or less, it takes half as much damage.

Forceful Hand. The hand attempts to push a creature within 1 meter of it in a direction you choose. The creature must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 5d6 bludgeoning damage and if it is Medium or smaller it is pushed 3 meters away from the hand. The hand moves with the creature to remain within 1 meter of it.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

Grasping Hand. The hand attempts to grapple a creature within 1 meter of it. The creature must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 4d6 bludgeoning damage and if it is Medium or smaller it is grappled by the hand.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

Interposing Hand. The hand interposes itself between you and a creature. The hand moves to stay between you and the creature, providing you with half cover against the creature. The creature can’t move through the hand’s space unless it succeeds on a Brawn check to overrun it or a Nimbleness check to tumble past it.

Augment

You can increase the damage from the clenched fist and the grasping hand options by 2d6, the other options by 3d6, push the creature an additional meter for the forceful hand option, and affect a creature of a larger size for each additional mana expended.

As two actions, a fountain of churned earth and stone erupts from a point on the ground within 20 meters. Each creature in a sphere centered on that point must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 6d6 bludgeoning damage.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

The ground in the spell’s area becomes difficult terrain until cleared. Each 1-meter square portion of the area requires at least 1 minute to clear by hand.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 2d6 for each additional mana expended.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

As two actions, small fissures continuously open and close on the ground in a sphere centered on a point within 20 meters for the duration. The fissures turn the ground into difficult terrain for the duration.

A creature that enters the spell’s area for the first time on a turn or starts its turn there must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 3d8 bludgeoning damage and is knocked prone.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

As an action, you can cause the fissures to move 2 meters in a direction that you choose at the start of each of your turns. As an action, you can stop the fissures from moving if it is within 20 meters of you. Any difficult terrain that is no longer in the fissures returns to normal.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can increase the damage by 1d8 for every two additional mana expended.

  • You can expend 1 additional mana so the duration changes to 1 hour/mana.

(ritual); 3 hours/mana

As two actions, you step into a stone object or surface large enough to fully contain your body, melding yourself and all the equipment you carry with the stone for the duration. Using your movement, you step into the stone at a point you can touch. Nothing of your presence remains visible or otherwise detectable by nonmagical senses.

While merged with the stone, you can’t see what occurs outside it, and any Perception checks you make to hear sounds outside it are made with disadvantage. You remain aware of the passage of time and can cast spells on yourself while merged in the stone. You can use your movement to leave the stone where you entered it, which ends the spell. You otherwise can’t move.

Minor physical damage to the stone doesn’t harm you, but its partial destruction or a change in its shape (to the extent that you no longer fit within it) expels you and deals 6d6 bludgeoning damage to you. The stone’s complete destruction (or transmutation into a different substance) expels you and deals 50 bludgeoning damage to you. If expelled, you fall prone in an unoccupied space closest to where you first entered.

Augment

Stone Meld. You can expend 1 additional mana to change the duration to 5 minutes/mana. For the duration, you can move through solid earth or stone as if it was air and without destabilizing it, but you can’t end your movement there. If you do so, you are ejected to the nearest unoccupied space, this spell ends, and you are stunned until the end of your next turn.

concentration, 1 hour/mana

As two actions, choose a sphere of terrain twice as big as normal within 20 meters. You can reshape dirt, sand, or clay in the area in any manner you choose for the duration. You can raise or lower the area’s elevation, create or fill in a trench, erect or flatten a wall, or form a pillar. The extent of any such changes can’t exceed half the area’s largest dimension. So, if you affect a 5-meter square, you can create a pillar up to 3 meters high, raise or lower the square’s elevation by up to 3 meters, dig a trench up to 3 meters deep, and so on. It takes 10 minutes for these changes to complete.

Every 10 minutes you spend concentrating on the spell, you can choose a new area of terrain to affect.

Because the terrain’s transformation occurs slowly, creatures in the area can’t usually be trapped or injured by the ground’s movement.

This spell can’t manipulate natural stone or stone construction. Rocks and structures shift to accommodate the new terrain. If the way you shape the terrain would make a structure unstable, it might collapse.

Similarly, this spell doesn’t directly affect plant growth. The moved earth carries any plants along with it.

5 minutes/mana

As two actions, you imbue a stone object or surface no larger than a sphere within 5 meters of you with limited sentience and animation, giving it the ability to communicate with you and follow your simple commands. You can question the stone about events within 5 meters of it that occurred within the past day, gaining information about creatures that have passed, weather, and other circumstances.

You can also turn difficult terrain caused by earth or stone within 5 meters of you into ordinary terrain that lasts for the duration. Or you can turn ordinary terrain where earth or stone are present into difficult terrain that lasts for the duration, causing fissures and unstable ground to hinder pursuers, for example.

For duration, you can speak and understand Terran and you are aware of any creatures within 5 meters of you that are merged with stone by the meld into stone spell. At your command, you can cause the stone to harmlessly expel such a creature, ending that spell.

As two actions, you touch a stone object of Medium size or smaller or a section of stone no more than 1 meter in any dimension and form it into any shape that suits your purpose. So, for example, you could shape a large rock into a weapon, idol, or coffer, or make a small passage through a wall, as long as the wall is less than 1 meter thick. You could also shape a stone door or its frame to seal the door shut. The object you create can have up to two hinges and a latch, but finer mechanical detail isn’t possible.

Augment

You can manipulate an object of 1 larger size (Large, Huge, and Gargantuan) and the section of stone by 1 meter in any dimension for each additional mana expended.

1 minute/mana

As two actions, your flesh turns as hard as stone. You have resistance to bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage from attacks that aren’t adamantine for the duration.

Augment

You can expend 1 additional mana to target a creature you can touch or see within 10 meters.

As two actions, choose a sphere twice as big as normal of stone or mud that you can see within 20 meters, and choose one of the following effects.

Transmute Rock to Mud. Nonmagical rock of any sort in the area becomes an equal volume of thick, flowing mud that remains until the spell is dispelled.

The ground in the spell’s area becomes muddy enough that creatures can sink into it. Movement through the ground is at a quarter speed, and any creature on the ground when you cast the spell must make a Reflex saving throw. A creature must also make the saving throw when it moves into the area for the first time on a turn or ends its turn there.

On a failure, a creature sinks into the mud and is restrained, though it can use an action to end the restrained condition on itself by pulling itself free of the mud.

If you cast the spell on a ceiling, the mud falls. Any creature under the mud when it falls must make a Reflex saving throw. A creature takes 5d6 bludgeoning damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

Transmute Mud to Rock. Nonmagical mud or quicksand in the area no more than 2 meters deep transforms into soft stone until the spell is dispelled. Any creature in the mud when it transforms must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a success, a creature is shunted safely to the surface in an unoccupied space.

On a failure, a creature becomes restrained by the rock. A restrained creature, or another creature within reach, can use an action to try to break the rock by succeeding on a Difficulty 20 Brawn check or by dealing damage to it. The rock has 15 Defense, 2 Soak, and 25 Health, and it is immune to poison and psychic damage.

Augment

You can increase the damage from the mud falling by 2d6 for each additional mana expended.

concentration, 5 minute/mana

As two actions, a nonmagical wall of solid stone twice as big as normal springs into existence at a point within 20 meters that lasts for the duration. The wall can’t occupy the same space as a creature or object and doesn’t need to be vertical or rest on any firm foundation. It must, however, merge with and be solidly supported by existing stone.

If a creature would be surrounded on all sides by the wall (or the wall and another solid surface), that creature can make a Reflex saving throw.

On a success, it can use its reaction to move up to its speed so that it is no longer enclosed by the wall.

The wall is an object made of stone that blocks line of sight. The wall can be damaged and thus breached. Each panel has 15 Defense, 3 Soak, and 2 Health per centimeter of thickness. Reducing a panel to 0 health destroys it and might cause connected panels to collapse at the GM’s discretion.

You can use this spell to bridge a chasm or create a ramp. If you create a span greater than 4 meters in length, you must halve the size of each panel to create supports. You can crudely shape the wall to create crenellations, battlements, and so on.

If you maintain your concentration on this spell for its whole duration, the wall becomes permanent and can’t be dispelled. Otherwise, the wall disappears when the spell ends.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

As two actions, a creature that is made of flesh that you can touch or see within 10 meters must make a Fortitude saving throw.

On a failure, its body starts to turn into stone as it is slowed 2.

A creature slowed by this spell must make another Fortitude saving throw at the end of each of its turns.

On a success, the slowed level is reduced by 1.

On a failure, the slowed level increases by 1. The spell ends if the slowed level is reduced to 0. If the slowed level reaches 4, the creature is turned to stone, no longer makes saving throws each turn, and is subjected to the petrified condition for the duration.

Since this spell induces the process of becoming petrified, any effect that removes petrified apply to it.

If the creature is physically broken while petrified, it suffers from similar deformities if it reverts to its original state.

If you maintain your concentration on this spell for the entire possible duration, the creature is turned to stone until the effect is removed.
