Tangled Roots

Design invocation (manifestation); Level 1

Duration 1 min./level (D)
Saving Throw Reflex partial; see text; Spell Resistance no


This script manifests roots, vines, and other plants to tangle creatures in the area. Creatures that are in the target area when you cast tangled roots must make Reflex save or gain the entangled condition. Creatures that make their save can move as normal. Entangled creatures can attempt to break free as a move action, making a Strength or Escape Artist check. The DC for this check is equal to the DC of the spell.

The entangling effect only happens once, when the effect is conjured. Creatures that enter after the script has been cast are not entangled. However, the entire area is considered difficult terrain while the effect lasts.

Overload: For every runic charge overloaded into this script, you may increase the radius of the area by 5 feet. For every two invocation charges used, the DC increases by +1.
