Description: Covers the terrain with small spikes. Any creature will suffer 1d4 per 3 caster level points of damage each round that they remain within the afflicted area. These spikes can damage the victim's legs, so that even once they are free of the spike growth, their movement rate is slowed for 1 round per caster level.


  • The negative effects are applied on entry in addition to once per round.
  • A successful saving throw negates (only) the movement rate penalty; there is no save against the damage.
  • The movement rate penalty is 30%, and it is not applied if the target's movement has already been hampered by (this or any other casting of) spike growth.
  • Under construction.
  • Persistent area spells do not stack with themselves. When the same spell is cast it will be replaced and refreshed.
  • Different area spells may be stacked.
  • Same spell by different caster stacks.
  • The same spell may be casted away from 50% of the center of the Area of Effect (AoE) radius, allowing a section where they can overlap, and hit twice.
  • Acid Fog, Wall of Fire, Incendiary Cloud and Cloudkill spells will ignore NPC and PC corpses, but still damage furniture/placables normally.
  • Table key:
    • CEoR: Checks made on (e)ntry, per (r)ound, or (b)oth.
    • SpR: Speed reduction.
