Stalagmites (Magic User Spell)
Level 2 Components: V, S, M
Range: 6" Casting time: 3 segments
Duration: n/a Saving Throw: None
Area of Effect: Special
This spell brings one or more stalagmites - very rapidly and dangerously - into existence. Each stalagmite does 2-8 hit points of damage; the mage must roll "to hit" in order for the stalagmite to hit, disregarding any armor but taking into account dexterity. The spell brings 1-2 stalagmites into existence + one for every other level after 4 (i.e. 1-2 +1 stalagmites at level 6, 1-2 +2 at level 8, etc.) If the mage rolls a perfect 20 to hit the stalagmite impales the target, who is immobilized until rescued. If the mage rolls a 1, it shatters and deals 3-12 hit points of damage to all within range, including the mage. Stalagmites must be cast on a stone or stony surface in order to function.
