This poultice is made from roots and root vegetables, mixed with corms and bulbs and various saps and herbs. The holder of the poultice activates it by embedding a bit of gravel within it, causing the mixture to swell and turn into a rubbly mass. The holder then tosses the poultice toward a target area within range, as above.

A rain of dirt, gravel, and small pebbles fills the area, dealing (Circle 2 damage): 1d6 points of damage per character level (max 6d6 at character level 6) points of bludgeoning (physical, common) damage to every creature in the area. This damage only occurs once, when the activated poultice is thrown. Affected creatures are allowed a saving throw as described above to take half damage.

In addition, until the start of the holder's next turn, this debris covers the ground, making the entire area difficult terrain. If affected creatures make the save above, they are not affected by the difficult terrain either. At the start of the holder's next turn, the rocks disappear, leaving no aftereffects (other than the damage dealt).
