You make broad, circular gestures, water gushing from your hands as you swirl into existence a huge, surging, swirling globe of water, ten feet in diameter.
Once called into existence, in an open square adjacent to your space, you may expend a move action to command the aqueous orb to roll in whichever direction you point and drench all creatures it moves adjacent to, or who move adjacent to it, once per round per creature. (It does not drench the caster upon creation, although it is wise to move it quickly away.) It can also be commanded to geyser (requiring a standard action) in a bursting gush of water, affecting all creatures within ten feet of its space (a 6 x 6 square space, centered on the orb). When commanded to geyser it inflicts (Circle 3 damage): 1d6 points of damage per character level (max 10d6 at character level 10) of winded (physical, uncommon) damage, with a saving throw as above for half damage. Bursting in this fashion does not end the spell.
It moves 30 feet per Move action the caster expends, using either Walk or Swim as its movement type, in any combination desired. As part of this movement, it can travel freely into water or similar fluids. If it enters a space adjacent to a creature, it deals 3d6 points of buffeting (physical, uncommon) damage to that creature, though a successful save as defined above halves that damage.
If not directed to move, the sphere stays at rest and buffets any creatures who moves adjacent to it, once per round per creature.
It occupies a space as a creature does, and can be moved around by Combat maneuver checks, and its space can be entered (at the cost of being buffeted) through normal means such as Overruns or Clamber. It is not a creature or an ally, does not flank or make attacks of opportunity, and cannot be targeted for buff or debuff effects. The surface of the sphere has a spongy, yielding consistency and so does not cause damage except by its buffeting motion.
The Aqueous Orb is considered an attended object and cannot be harmed by hit point damage. It can be Sundered to destroy it, having a Durability of one. The difficulty of a Sunder check against the Sphere is the Maneuver Defense of the Caster. It cannot push aside unwilling creatures, batter down large obstacles, or inflict any Siege Damage. An Aqueous Orb winks out if it exceeds the spell's range.
This spell lays a divine charge on its target(s). If the targets are something other than you or another creature (such as an object or area), the spell lays a divine charge on you, the caster. Targets which already have a divine charge present must choose which to keep when the new spell is cast. Only one divine charge can ever be present on a target at a time.
