Description

You utter crisp, brittle words in a cold, authoritative tone of voice, bringing forth the power of Winter. Upon completion of the cold, hard words of this spell, you cause sharp icicles to erupt from the nearest surface adjacent to the target creature. (Usually the ground.) If the creature is not adjacent to a solid or liquid surface, the spell fails.
The erupting spears of thick ice trap the target in a powerful grip. If the creature fails its save, it is immobilized in its current space, and takes (Circle 3 damage): 1d6 points of damage per character level (max 10d6 at character level 10) points of cold (energy, common) damage.
If the target makes its save, it gains the slowed condition and only suffers half the damage.
