This poultice is brewed from seaweed, tumbleweeds, milkweed pods, high-tossed leaves, and other plants and herbs indicative of a freely-moving environment. The holder anoints a strip of flexible bark, and ties it to themselves or a creature they can touch. The poultice enables you or the creature you touch to move and attack normally for the duration of the spell.
This effect lowers status conditions that usually impede movement, such as Paralyzed, to the next weakest condition instead, and if it is a Weak condition, it is negated completely.
All combat maneuver checks made to Grapple the target automatically fail. The subject automatically succeeds on any combat maneuver checks and Escape Artist checks made to escape being grappled or pinned. This is extremely useful against collapses, avalanches, pyroclastic flows, and similar Environmental Effects.
The spell also allows the subject to move and make melee attacks normally while underwater. The Freedom of Movement poultice does not grant water breathing or have any affect on ranged attacks.
This poultice can be used to disperse Obscuring spells. Gases, fogs, and vapors that intersect the squares occupied by this poultice's effect are dispersed in those squares.

This spell lays an arcane 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 an arcane charge on you, the caster. Targets which already have an arcane charge present must choose which to keep if the new spell has the same charge type. Only one arcane charge can ever be present on a target at a time.
