Earth

Earth is one of the prime elements; it is heavy, solid and sturdy. The Earth theme focuses on control and bludgeoning damage, with some protection and utility.

Maneuvers from the Earth theme focus on strength and power.

Spells from the Earth theme allow you to shape earth and stone, bind creatures to the ground, hurl rock, cause the earth to erupt, turn flesh into stone, create walls of rock, move through stone, animate solid rock, assume the form of earth, and cause earthquakes.

Earth feats

You can take each feat only once, unless the feat’s description says otherwise. You must meet any prerequisite specified in a feat to take that feat. If you ever lose a feat’s prerequisite, you can’t use that feat until you regain the prerequisite.

You have advantage on saving throws and ability checks to avoid being pushed, pulled, or knocked prone.

Prerequisites: The ability to cast at least one earth spell

You can harness the magical power of stone for your protection. When you expend mana or psi to cast a spell, you can simultaneously use a strand of the spell’s magic to create an aegis on yourself that lasts until you finish a long rest. The aegis has health equal to your level + your spellcasting ability. Whenever you take bludgeoning, piercing, or slashing damage, the aegis takes the damage instead. If this damage reduces the aegis to 0 health, you take any remaining damage.

While the aegis has 0 health, it can’t absorb damage, but its magic remains. Whenever you expend mana or psi to cast a spell, the aegis regains an amount of health equal to the mana or psi you expended.

You can move the aegis to another creature that you can touch or see within 5 meters as an action.

Once you create the aegis, you can’t create it again until you finish a long rest.

You can speak, read, and write Terran and whenever you make a Charisma check when interacting with elementals based from the earth you have advantage.

Additionally, you are unhindered by difficult terrain caused by stones.

Prerequisites: The ability to cast at least one earth or sand spell

Due to your connection to the earth you gain tremorsense which allows you to detect and pinpoint the origin of vibrations within 5 meters, provided that you and the source of the vibrations are in contact with the same ground or substance. Tremorsense can’t be used to detect flying or incorporeal creatures.

You have a soak of 2 or your soak increases by 2 if you already have soak (up to 3 soak).

You can burrow through nonmagical, unworked, earth and stone with a burrow speed equal to half your walking speed. While doing so, you don’t disturb the material you move through.

Earth concoctions

3 hours/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of liquid with pieces of rock suspended in it. A creature can drink the contents as an action so its skin takes on a rough, rock-like appearance for the duration. The creatures’s Defense becomes 13 + half its proficiency bonus + its Dexterity (max 4) as long as it isn’t wearing armor. The effect ends if the creature dons armor.

5 minutes/catalyst

As two actions, you can create a vial liquid with rocky pieces suspended in it. A creature can drink the contents as an action to turns its flesh as hard as stone. For the duration, the creature has resistance to bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage from attacks that aren’t adamantine.

Ironskin. You can expend 1 additional catalyst so the target has resistance to bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage.

Earth maneuvers

1 minute/stamina die

On a hit, if the creature is your size or smaller, it must succeed on a Reflex saving throw or you push it up to 2 meters away from you.

Enhance

You can increase the damage, target a creature of a larger size, and push the creature an additional 1 meter for each additional stamina die expended.

As an action, you can use the Dash action. If you use a Brawn check to Overrun a creature during this movement, the creature takes bludgeoning damage equal to the stamina die and is knocked prone.

Enhance

On a failed save, a creature is knocked prone.

Earth 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. If you 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 transform one of your hands into solid stone. Make a melee spell attack against a creature within 1 meter of you.

On a hit, it takes 1d8 bludgeoning damage.

If you miss by 4 or less, it takes half as much damage.

After you make the attack, your hand returns to normal.

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 failed save, a creature takes 3d8 bludgeoning damage and if it is Medium or smaller it is pushed 2 meters away from you in a direction following the cone or line.

On a successful save, a creature takes half as much damage and isn’t pushed.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 2d8, push the creature an additional meter, and affect a creature of a larger size for each additional mana or psi 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 5 Defense 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 successful save, 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 3d8 bludgeoning damage and is restrained, pinched between the pillar and the obstacle. A creature restrained by a pillar can use an action to make an Acrobatics or Brawn check (its choice) against your spell save DC.

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 or psi expended.

concentration, 1 minute/mana or psi

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 failed save, its flying speed (if any) is reduced to 0 meters for the spell’s duration. An airborne creature affected by this spell descends at 10 meters per round until it reaches the ground or the spell ends.

Augment

You can target one additional creature for each additional mana or psi 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 creature rolls but before any effects of the roll occur.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana or psi for each option.
  • You can expend 2 additional mana or psi to roll 2d4.

  • You can expend 4 additional mana or psi to roll 3d4.

  • You can expend 1 additional mana or psi 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 or psi to instead become encased in stone as the attack’s damage against you is halved. For 1 minute/mana or psi 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 target must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failed save, it takes 3d12 bludgeoning damage and if it is Medium or smaller it is pushed up to 2 meters away from you.

On a successful save, it takes half as much damage and isn’t pushed.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana or psi for each option.
  • You can increase the damage by 4d12 and affect a creature of a larger size for each additional mana or psi expended.

  • Hard Rock. You can expend 1 additional mana or psi to make the boulder sturdy and hard. The boulder is a 1-meter-radius sphere with 5 Defense and 20 Health. On a failed save, the boulder lands at the creature or object’s feet or in its space if it is pushed. On a successful save, 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 or psi

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 12 + half your proficiency bonus + 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 or psi to cast the spell as a reaction, which you use when you are hit by an attack.

3 hours/mana or psi

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 proficiency bonus + 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 failed save, it takes 2d10 piercing damage and is knocked prone.

On a successful save, it takes half as much damage and can’t be knocked prone by other stalagmites from this casting of the spell.

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

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana or psi for each option.
  • You can increase the damage by 4d10 for each additional mana or psi expended.

  • You can create two additional stalagmites for each additional mana or psi expended. Additional augments to the damage increase the damage by 2d10 for each additional mana or psi expended, instead of the normal increase.

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

On a failed save, a creature takes 1d8 bludgeoning damage and is knocked prone.

On a successful save, a creature takes half as much damage and isn’t knocked prone. 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 or psi for each option.
  • You can increase the damage by 2d8 for each additional mana or psi expended.

  • Tremors. You can expend 2 additional mana or psi so 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.

    Whenever a creature enters the area for the first time on a turn or starts its turn there, it must make the Reflex saving throw. The damage is reduced to 1d4 and additional augments to the damage increase the damage by 1d4 for each additional mana or psi expended, instead of the normal increase.

concentration, 1 hour/mana or psi

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 or psi, up to your mana limit or psi limit. For each mana or psi you expend, the elemental gains 1 mana or 3 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.

As an action on each of your turns, you can mentally command any creature you summoned with this spell if the creature is within 100 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 or psi for each option.
  • You can use an additional resource for each additional mana or psi expended.

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

concentration, 5 minutes/mana or psi

As an action, 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 or psi

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 spell’s duration, and it moves at your command, mimicking the movements of your own hand.

When you cast the spell—and as an action on each of your turns thereafter—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 5d8 bludgeoning damage.

If you 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 failed save, it takes 4d8 bludgeoning damage and if it is Medium or smaller it is pushed up to 3 meters away from the hand. The hand moves with the creature to remain within 1 meter of it.

On a successful save, it takes half as much damage and isn’t pushed.

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

On a failed save, it takes 5d6 bludgeoning damage and if it is Medium or smaller it is grappled by the hand.

On a successful save, it takes half as much damage and isn’t grappled.

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 an Acrobatics check to tumble past it or a Brawn check to overrun it.

Augment

You can increase the damage from the clenched fist option by 3d8, the damage from the forceful hand by 3d8 and the damage from the grasping hand by 3d6, and affect a creature of a larger size for each additional mana or psi 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. A creature takes 7d6 bludgeoning damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. Additionally, the ground in that 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 or psi expended.

1 minute/mana or psi

As two actions, small fissures continuously open and close on the ground in a sphere centered on a point within 5 meters and turns it into difficult terrain for the duration.

When the fissures appear, each creature standing in the area must succeed on a Reflex saving throw or fall prone. A creature that enters the area or ends its turn there must also succeed on a Reflex saving throw or fall prone.

(ritual); 3 hours/mana or psi

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 or psi to change the duration to 5 minutes/mana or psi. 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 or psi

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 or psi

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 or psi expended.

1 minute/mana or psi

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 or psi 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 failed save, 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 6d6 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 successful save, a creature is shunted safely to the surface in an unoccupied space.

On a failed save, 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 DC 20 Brawn check or by dealing damage to it. The rock has 15 Defense 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 or psi expended.

concentration, 5 minute/mana or psi

As two actions, a nonmagical wall of solid stone twice as big as normal springs into existence at a point within 20 meters for the duration. The wall can have any shape you desire, though it can’t occupy the same space as a creature or object. The wall 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 the wall cuts through a creature’s space when it appears, the creature is pushed to one side of the wall (your choice). 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 successful save, 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 20 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 or psi

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 failed save, 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 successful save, the slowed level is reduced by 1.

On a failed save, 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.

As you spend 1 minute to cast this spell, you create a magical restraint to hold a creature that you can touch or see within 5 meters. The target must succeed on a Will saving throw or be entombed far beneath the earth in an air pocket that is just large enough to contain the target. Nothing can pass through the pocket, nor can any creature teleport or use planar travel to get into or out of it. If it succeeds, it is immune to this spell if you cast it again.

While affected by this spell, the creature doesn’t need to breathe, eat, or drink, and it doesn’t age. Divination spells can’t locate or perceive the target.

Ending the Spell. During the casting of the spell, you can specify a condition that will cause the spell to end and release the target. The condition can be as specific or as elaborate as you choose, but the GM must agree that the condition is reasonable and has a likelihood of coming to pass. The conditions can be based on a creature’s name, identity, or deity but otherwise must be based on observable actions or qualities and not based on intangibles such as level, class, or health.

A dispel magic spell can end the spell only if it is cast using 5 mana or psi.

As two actions, you create a seismic disturbance at a point on the ground that you can see within 100 meters. For the duration, an intense tremor rips through the ground in a 20-meter radius circle centered on that point and shakes creatures and structures in contact with the ground in that area.

The ground in the area becomes difficult terrain. Each creature on the ground that is concentrating must make a Will saving throw.

On a failed save, the creature’s concentration is broken.

When you cast this spell and at the end of each turn you spend concentrating on it, each creature on the ground in the area must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failed save, the creature is knocked prone.

This spell can have additional effects depending on the terrain in the area, as determined by the GM.

Fissures. Fissures open throughout the spell’s area at the start of your next turn after you cast the spell. A total of 1d6 such fissures open in locations chosen by the GM. Each is 1d10 × 2 meters deep, 2 meters wide, and extends from one edge of the spell’s area to the opposite side. A creature standing on a spot where a fissure opens must succeed on a Reflex saving throw or fall in. A creature that successfully saves moves with the fissure’s edge as it opens.

A fissure that opens beneath a structure causes it to automatically collapse (see below).

Structures. The tremor deals 75 bludgeoning damage to any structure in contact with the ground in the area when you cast the spell and at the start of each of your turns until the spell ends. If a structure drops to 0 health, it collapses and potentially damages nearby creatures. A creature within half the distance of a structure’s height must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failed save, it takes 10d6 bludgeoning damage, is knocked prone, and is buried in the rubble, requiring a DC 20 Brawn check as an action to escape. The GM can adjust the DC higher or lower, depending on the nature of the rubble.

On a successful save, it takes half as much damage and doesn’t fall prone or become buried.
