This spell strengthens the subject's connection to the ground below, bolstering its defense against combat maneuvers. The subject gains a +1 Arcane Bonus to its Maneuver Defense to resist Trips, Bull Rushes, Overruns, and Repositions, and a +1 Arcane Bonus on all Acrobatics checks made to balance or remain standing on earth, sand, stone, or a similar rocky substance.
This spell lays an arcane or divine charge on its target(s), depending on the caster who is casting the spell. If the targets are something other than you or another creature (such as an object or area), the spell lays an arcane or divine charge on you, the caster. Divine casters lay a divine charge, and arcane casters lay an arcane charge. Targets which already have an arcane or divine charge present must choose which to keep if the new spell has the same charge type. Only one arcane charge and one divine charge can ever be present on a target at a time.
