By calling upon the primordial powers of
elemental earth, you complete the spell. A
feeling of stubborn determination fi lls your
soul until you touch the spell’s intended
recipient. You see then in that creature a
hint of the same feeling of determination.

While this spell is in effect, the subject
can root itself to the ground as a free
action. The subject gains a bonus equal
to your caster level against any attempts
to grapple, lift, push, bull rush, overrun,
throw, trip, or otherwise force the subject
to move against its will through
either physical or magical means.

If at any point such an effort succeeds
and the subject is forced to move,
the spell ends immediately. Any
voluntary movement on the subject’s
part does not end the spell (although
a creature cannot be rooted while it
moves), and the subject can “reroot”
itself elsewhere in the same manner
as described above.
