You entrap a creature in a cage of thorny brambles that erupts from the ground around them. The target must attempt a Reflex save. On a successful save, the target takes 2d6 piercing damage as it escapes the brambles and the spell ends. On a failed save, the target is grappled and takes 6d6 piercing damage each round it remains so. The target can use the escape task of the Acrobatics skill to escape the grapple as normal, or it can attempt the grapple combat maneuver even if you aren’t within reach; if the target succeeds at the grapple combat maneuver, it escapes the grapple effect but don’t grapple you in return. If the target escapes the grapple, the spell ends.
