Scarred by his experience (in both the literal and non-literal way) with first speakers, Elush sought to improve on his original spell to assist him against more than just normal land movement. This spell was the result, and while less spectacular, has much more broad capabilities, and also is much more tenacious than the original on which it is based.
All the subjects' movement speeds are halved (rounding up). Subjects possessing any of the following modes of movement suffer additional penalties as well:
- Climb speed: The subject loses any bonus to Climb checks (or Athletics checks for climbing, if you're using Tome of Prowess) from having a climb speed. Additionally, they are considered to have four less ranks in Climb (or Athletics, as appropriate) than they actually do for all purposes while this spell is in effect.
- Fly speed: The subject's fly speed's maneuverability becomes two categories worse. If this would reduce it to worse than clumsy, the subject cannot fly, and must land on its next turn. If it can't, it falls the remaining distance.
- Swim speed: The subject loses any bonus to Swim checks (or Athletics checks for swimming, if you're using Tome of Prowess) from having a swim speed. Additionally, they are considered to have four less ranks in Swimor Athletics, as appropriate) than they actually do for all purposes while this spell is in effect.
This is considered a form of paralysis, and may be removed by remove paralysis. Creatures immune to paralysis effects are similarly immune to this spell.
