Fech Fech (3.5e Spell)
From D&D Wiki
|Casting time:||5 rounds|
|Range:||Medium (100 feet + 10 feet per technician level)|
|Area:||10 ft. radius area of dirt|
|Saving Throw:||Reflex negates|
Stirring your hands in a circular motion, you slowly churn up the ground beneath an area into a quicksand-like substance. Then, you soften the ground above it and hollow out some below, all without disturbing the presence of the ground. This causes the affected area to permanently become fech-fech. The area's plant life dies off leaving what appears to be just a dry area on the ground, like any other well traveled road. But when significant weight is put upon it, such as two medium sized creatures, the soft top collapses, dropping the unsuspecting victims into the quicksand. A successful Reflex save negates as the target avoids falling in but still collapses the top.
Creatures caught in the quicksand suffer the effects of the quicksand technique but this quicksand never returns to normal dirt unless dried through some means.
By spending an additional 7 technique points you may make the fech-fech either stronger or weaker to any degree, requiring more or less weight to trigger, or increase the radius of the effect by 5 feet.
