The spell could be used for a variety of functions. It could instantly excavate and harmlessly move aside a volume of earth equivalent to a cube 5 feet (1.5 meters) on a side every 6 seconds, out to a range of 30 feet (9.1 meters). It was also capable of manipulating earth and stone to form shapes or written messages that lasted for 1 hour. Finally, it could smooth out a rough patch of terrain or cause an otherwise smooth patch to become rough and irregular, also up to 1 hour. Only two of these temporary effects could be active simultaneously, but the caster could choose to end them early.
