This spell allows you to conjure a small barricade to impede foes and provide cover to allies. The barricade is 10 feet wide and can be as high as 1 foot per caster level, is made primarily of wood, and is held together by metal bands and nails. The barricade itself is about six inches thick; it has 60 hit points and hardness 5, and can be broken in one strike with a DC 23 Strength check. As it’s made out of wood, it is fairly susceptible to fire; fire damage ignores the hardness of and deals full damage to a barricade.One side of the barricade, designated by you, is covered in spikes 1 foot in length each, spaced about six inches apart. A creature that charges into the barrier rams into the spikes, taking 3d6 points of piercing damage; a Reflex save halves the damage taken. A creature can attempt to climb over a barricade with a DC 15 Climb check, but doing so requires it to make a Reflex save or take 1d6 piercing damage and stop climbing that round.
