Riptide

3rd-level conjuration

Classes: sorcerer, warlock, wizard

Casting Time:1 action

Range:60 feet

Components:V, S

Duration:1 round

With a sweeping gesture, you cause a great swell of water to rise up in a 20-foot tall, 20-foot radius cylinder centered on a point on the ground that you can see. Each creature in the area must make a Strength saving throw. On a failed save, a creature is restrained and suspended in the cylinder or moves to the nearest edge of cylinder on a successful one.

At the start of your next turn, you can direct the current of the swell as it dissipates. Choose one of the following options:

  • Riptide. The water in the cylinder flows in a direction you choose, sweeping each creature in the area to the edge of the cylinder. A creature takes 3d8 bludgeoning damage and is pushed up to 40 feet in the chosen direction, or to the edge of the cylinder, landing prone.
  • Undertow. The water rushes downward, pulling each creature in the area into an unoccupied space at the center. The creatures are knocked prone and must make a Constitution saving throw. On a failed save a creature is stunned until the start of your next turn.
