Primal magic events cannot be triggered within the area of effect of this spell.

The emanation grants a +4 circumstance bonus on all saving throws against effects generated by primal magic outside of the spell’s effect that expand into the area.

Unfortunately, suppressed primal magic tends to build up around the emanation created by this spell. When suppress primal magic’s duration ends (or when the spell is dispelled), a primal magic event is immediately triggered at the center of the emanation if that point is still in an area where primal magic is active. The CR of this event is equal to the caster level of the recently ended suppress primal magic spell. The original caster of the suppress primal magic spell can attempt to negate this triggered primal magic event by making a DC 20 Will save—most spellcasters instead relocate to an area not affected by primal magic if they can so that they can end the spell’s effect safely.
