As a bonus action, vines extend from your outstretched arm. Until the spell ends, you can cause the vines to lash out on each of your turns as an action.

Creature. The creature must succeed on a Reflex saving throw or be pulled up to 9 meters toward you. A Large or larger creature has advantage on this saving throw. If the creature is willing, it can allow itself to be pulled.

Unattended Object. An unattended object is pulled up to 9 meters towards you; if this moves it into your square, you may grasp the item, although you must have a free hand to do so.

Surface. If you target an immovable object such as an object bolted to the floor, a building wall, floor, or ceiling, you can move up to 18 meters towards the target. If you end your movement at a climbable location, such as a wall or ledge, you can attempt an Athletics check to grab hold, or pull yourself over the edge in the case of a ledge. If you fail that check you begin falling. You can move yourself up to 18 meters as an action on your turn.

If you pull yourself towards a surface while being grappled, any creature that is grappling you must succeed on a Reflex saving throw or be forced to release the grapple.

On a successful save, the creature can prevent you from moving.

You can cause the vines to release at any time (no action required by you). They retract instantly.

The vines are flammable. Any vines exposed to fire burn away in 1 round.

You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana or psi for each option.
  • You can expend 1 additional mana or psi as a reaction, which you take when you or a creature within 18 meters of you falls. Vines lash out to a solid surface within 18 meters, or the falling creature, and lower you or the creature up to 35 meters from the point of attachment toward the ground.

  • Soaring Vines. You can expend 1 additional mana or psi so the vines can attach themselves to your torso, leaving your arms and legs unhindered. The vines automatically attach to solid surfaces (such as a building, a wall, or a tree) or other plants at least 4.5 meters above you and within 18 meters of you and shift with you, growing and retracting as you move from surface to surface. If any of the vines are destroyed, a new vine immediately grows to take its place.

    For the duration, as long as you are within 18 meters of a solid surface or other plants that is at least 4.5 meters above you, you have a flying speed of 12 meters, which can’t be reduced by nonmagical means. Additionally, you have advantage on saving throws made against effects that would push or pull you. When the spell ends, if you are near a solid surface or other plants, the vines gently lower you to the ground as they shrivel away.
