Level: Wiz 2
Components: V, S, M (50gp topaz)
Casting Time: +3 to init
Saving Throw: Reflex (or be knocked prone)
Spell Resistance: Yes
This spell creates an instantaneously expanding bubble of force that originates at the caster and expands outward, pushing creatures away from the caster. The bubble moves all objects and creatures (but not earth, lava, floors, walls, etc away from the caster. All creatures, furniture, and loose objects are pushed 10 feet away from the caster (so if they were adjacent to the caster on a 5×5 grid, they would be moved 2 squares away). Creatures pushed by the force ripple must oppose a bull rush attempt (DC=10+caster level), bull rushed creatures must make a reflex check or be knocked prone, loose objects and furniture have a 60% chance to tip over. The force ripple deals no damage, but creatures pushed into traps, pits or lava may suffer ill effects from their new location. Creatures that are pushed away from the caster before their turn in the initiative cycle may no longer be able to conduct a melee attack. The material component for this spell is a 50 gp topaz, which is consumed in the casting.
