This spell enables you to reduce the speed of a creature by a factor that varies according to your caster level. You reduce the target’s speed by as much as 5 ft. up to caster level 5; by as much as 10 ft. up to caster level 10; by as much as 15 ft. up to caster level 15; and by as much as 20 ft. for caster level 16 or higher. You can’t immobilize a creature completely with this spell; a target can always move at least 5 ft. and can still run, albeit not as fast as usual.
