Seismic Shift

4th-level evocation

Casting Time: 1 action

Range: Self (60-foot line)

Components: V, S, M (a small piece of sandstone)

Duration: Instantaneous

You disrupt the ground in a line 60 feet long and 10 feet wide extending from you in a direction you choose. You cause one of the following effects:

  • Collapse. The ground crumbles in the line. Each creature in the line must make a Dexterity saving throw. On a failed save, a creature is restrained as it sinks a few feet into the ground. On a successful save, a creature’s speed is reduced by 10 feet until the end of its next turn as its feet and legs are covered in thick layers of earth. A restrained creature can use its action to make a Strength check against your spell save DC. If it succeeds, it is no longer restrained.
  • Rupture. The ground bursts away from you along the line. Each creature in the line must make a Strength saving throw. On a failure, a creature is pushed up to 60 feet away from you in a direction following the line and knocked prone. On a successful save, a creature is pushed half the distance and isn’t knocked prone.
