Revision as of 04:19, September 15, 2019

Maximilian's earthen grasp was a transmutation spell that caused the earth itself to grab and restrain a target.[1] To Zakharan mages, always reluctant to acknowledge ajami names and accomplishments, the spell was known simply as earthen grasp, and counted among the spells of the province of sand.[4]

Effects

The spell caused a human-sized hand made of compacted earth to appear within a range of 30 feet (9.1 meters) from the caster. It then grabbed a specified target creature, restraining and crushing it. The hand could be directed to move to a new target within range and lasted for up to one minute, as long as the caster kept concentrating on the spell.[1]

The spell did not work in wildspace or in the phlogiston, since there was no earth from which the hand could emerge.[5]

Components

The spell required verbal, somatic, and material components. The material required was a miniature hand sculpted in clay,[1] which could be replaced by an arcane focus.[6]
