As two actions, grasping hands rise from the ground in a sphere on the ground that you can see within 20 meters. For the duration, these hands turn the ground in the area into difficult terrain.

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. A creature that starts its turn in the area and is already restrained by the hands takes 2d6 bludgeoning damage.

On a failure, it takes 1d6 bludgeoning damage and is restrained for the duration.

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.

A creature restrained by the hands, or one that can touch the creature, can use an action to make a Brawn or Nimbleness check (its choice) against your spell save Difficulty.

On a success, the target is freed.

When the spell ends, the hands sink in to the ground.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 1d6 for each additional mana expended.
