Gakijiwan - Waterfall - Mage Spell
Level: 5 Components: V, S, M
Range: 12" Casting Time: 1 round
Duration: Instant Saving Throw: Neg.
Gakijiwan creates a sinkhole in any large body of water (a lake, a river) that can drown swimmers, completely submerge and wreck canoes or other small boats, potentially wreck fishing boats or long boats, and partially swamp larger craft. A saving throw means the craft eluded the sinkhole or that the swimmer made it back to the surface. (Expert swimmers need simply make an ability check.) Fishing boats and long boats that are affected take 4-24 hull points of damage, potentially enough to destroy them. Large boats that are swamped move at half speed until bailed.
