Wire Tangler

Wondrous item, rare

This tightly wound ball of wire is riddled with burrs, barbs, and spikes. You can hurl it up to 60 feet as a ranged touch attack, bursting upon impact into a tangle of barbed wire in a 10-footradius spread. Creatures within this radius take 3d6 points of slashing damage, or half that much with a successful DC 15 Dexterity saving throw. Those who fail the save are grappled until they succeed at a DC 20 Strength check or Dexterity check. Each check, whether or not it succeeds, deals 1d6 points of piercing damage to the creature making the check.

In addition, once the wire tangler has erupted into a mass of barbed wire, that area is treated as a wall of thorns made from metal. The barbed wire created by a wire tangler crumbles to rust and dust after 10 minutes, allowing it to be used only once.
