You call forth a chain from the Shadow Plane, causing it to burst out from the ground and attempt to hinder a target within the spell’s range. The chain attempts a trip combat maneuver against the target; its attack bonus is equal to your base attack bonus + your key ability score modifier + 4. If the chain successfully trips the target, that target must attempt a Will saving throw or become shaken for 1d4 rounds.
You can cast this spell as a full action. If you do, you summon two chains instead of one. Each chain attempts its combat maneuver separately and they must attack two different targets within the spell’s range.
