School enchantment (compulsion, mind-affecting)

Casting Time 1 standard action

Range medium (100 ft. + 10 ft./level)

Saving Throw Will negates, see text; Spell Resistance yes


The target becomes paralyzed and freezes in place. It is aware and breathes normally but can’t take any physical actions, even speech. A held creature can’t cast spells. Each round on its turn, the target can spend a full action to attempt a new saving throw to end the effect. This does not provoke attacks of opportunity. A winged creature that is paralyzed can’t flap its wings and falls. A swimmer can’t swim and may drown.
