This spell turns natural, uncut or unworked rock of any sort into an equal volume of mud. Magical stone is not affected by the spell. The depth of the mud created cannot exceed 10 feet. A creature unable to levitate
, or otherwise free itself from the mud sinks until hip- or chest-deep, reducing its speed
to 5 feet and causing a -2 penalty on attack rolls
and AC. Brush thrown atop the mud can support creatures able to climb
on top of it. Creatures large enough to walk on the bottom can wade through the area
at a speed
of 5 feet.
If transmute rock to mud
is cast upon the ceiling of a cavern or tunnel, the mud falls to the floor
and spreads out in a pool at a depth of 5 feet. The falling
mud and the ensuing cave-in deal 8d6 points of bludgeoning damage
to anyone caught directly beneath the area
, or half damage
to those who succeed on Reflex saves.
Castles and large stone buildings are generally immune to the effect of the spell, since transmute rock to mud can't affect worked stone and doesn't reach deep enough to undermine such buildings' foundations. However, small buildings or structures often rest upon foundations shallow enough to be damaged or even partially toppled by this spell.
The mud remains until a successful dispel magic
or transmute mud to rock
spell restores its substance-but not necessarily its form. Evaporation turns the mud to normal dirt over a period of days. The exact time depends on exposure to the sun, wind, and normal drainage.
