As two actions, a shimmering, multicolored vortex of light forms at a point that you can see on the ground within 20 meters. The vortex is a cylinder centered on that point. Until the spell ends, you can use two actions to move the vortex up to 5 meters in any direction along the ground.

The vortex is full of different colors and each has a different power and purpose. A creature must make a Reflex saving throw the first time on a turn that it enters the vortex or that the vortex enters its space, including when the vortex first appears. For each creature, roll a d8 to determine which color affects it.

1. Red. It takes 5d4 fire damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

2. Orange. It takes 5d4 acid damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

3. Yellow. It takes 5d4 lightning damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

4. Green. It takes 5d4 poison damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

5. Blue. It takes 5d4 cold damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

6. Indigo. On a failure, it is slowed 1. A creature slowed by this spell must make Fortitude saving throw at the end of each of its turns.

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

On a failure, it takes 1d6 psychic damage and is slowed level increases by 1. The spell ends if the slowed level is reduced to 0.

7. Violet. On a failure, it is blinded. It must then make a Fortitude saving throw at the end of each of its turns.

On a success, the blindness ends.

8. Special. A creature is struck by two colors. Roll twice more, rerolling any 8.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can increase the damage for the red, orange, yellow, green, and blue colors by 1d4, indigo by 1d6, and violet by 1d4 for each additional mana expended. If you expend 4 or more mana the following colors change:

    Indigo. 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.

  • You can expend 1 additional mana so a creature that fails its saving throw rolls on the Wild Surge table to create a random magical effect. This wild surge can only occur once each round, and the spell ends once five surges have triggered.
