DESCRIPTION

A quick burst of psychokinetic force rearranges the land nearby you, providing an emergency source of cover. By pushing the terrain away from a central point and piling it at the outer edges of the area of effect, you can rapidly create a mundane safe-zone for sudden combat.

This power creates a small burrow three to five feet deep in the land, with a small wall that surrounds it which can provide cover for creatures within. Multiple manifestations of this power can dig deeper into the ground, providing a quick underground burrow, or can be used to extend an existing burrow into a trench. Foxhole cannot be used to dig through walls or foundations (although it could burrow around them) nor can it rearrange magically treated terrain.

If the area of effect completely contains a creature’s space, including the manifester, that creature must make a Reflex save or fall prone in the burrow. If a creature happens to be burrowing in the area of effect and would be exposed by this power, it emerges, prone but unharmed, in the trench.

Augment You may augment this power in one or more of the following ways:

1. For each additional power point spend, you can burrow one 5-ft, cube instead of affecting four 5-ft. squares. Only one of these cubes need be in contact with the surface when you start manifesting.

2. For each 2 additional power points spend, you can affect substances with an hardness of 2 additional points (such as stone or ice) starting at hardness 0.

3. If you spend 2 additional power points you may manifest this power as a swift action.
