Description: The spell titled Anther's Call was created by Imperial mages during the time of the Seven-Star Empire. They named the spell in honor of the famed Earth mage Anther to bridge the ideological rift between members of the Imperial College of Magic and those clan-structured Warrior Mages who remained loyal to the Grovekeepers. This spell calls forth a number of grasping hands fashioned from the earth or stone beneath the victim's feet which attempt to hold the target fast and immobile. It was widely used by Imperial mages to capture dissidents without inflicting physical harm.
Effect: -Evasion skill
Example Messaging: You gesture at a cougar.

A low, pure note chimes from the ground below.
The ground around a cougar begins to churn violently as dozens of large hands fashioned from living earth surge into view! The hands swarm over a cougar's body, gripping its extremities and rendering it completely immobile!
Roundtime: 2 sec.

The hands release their grip on a cougar and fall to the ground, reverting to piles of earth that slowly crumble away.

Contest Type: magic / fortitude
