concentration, 1 minute/mana or psi

As an action, you rebuke those that commit anathema against nature. Vines raise from the earth within 9 meters of you. Each creature of your choice in the area must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failed save, a creature is affected.

  • Restrained: each creature CR ½ or lower is restrained for the duration.
  • Held: each creature CR ¼ or lower is restrained and incapacitated for the duration.
  • Destroys: each creature CR ⅛ is destroyed.

If a creature fails the saving throw, but is above the threshold it is frightened by you for the duration.

A frightened creature must spend its turns trying to move as far away from you as it can. It also can’t take reactions. For its action, it can use only the Dash action or try to escape from an effect that prevents it from moving. If there’s nowhere to move, the creature can use the Dodge action.

If a creature is affected, but not destroyed, it can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.
