Bubble net causes a targeted underwater creature or object to be wrapped in a magical net of air bubbles that rises to the water’s surface.
When successfully cast, bubble net immediately lifts the target toward the surface of the water. The rate of ascent is quick, at 120 feet per round.
The bubble net equalizes pressure during the ascent so that creatures decompress without getting the bends. Once the target reaches the surface, the bubble net matches pressure with the surrounding water and no longer propels the target upward but maintains the target at the surface for the spell’s remaining duration.
The bubble net is not restrictive in any way, so the target is able to swim about as normal, but any attempt at descent only serves to counter some or all of the 120 feet per round ascent, depending on the target’s swimming speed. The spell does not interfere with attacks or other actions taken by a target creature.
The target of this spell cannot weigh more than 100 pounds per caster level. Finally, the spell functions the same in liquid mediums other than water.
