Campaign Design - Spells: Ådon's Force Wave

Ådon's Force Wave (adapted from Relics & Rituals; originally Dolomar's Force Wave)
Evocation [Force]

Level: Bard 2, Sorcerer/Wizard 2
Components: V, S
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Personal
Target, Effect, or Area: 10 feet + 1 foot per caster level radius burst outward from caster
Duration: Instantaneous
Saving Throw: None (see text)
Spell Resistance: Yes

Ådon's force wave radiates hemispheric waves of invisible force in every direction except down. The waves of force push objects and creatures directly away from the caster, similar to the effects of a bull rush attack. Since this is a force effect, Ådon's force wave will even affect incorporeal and ethereal targets.

Though no saving throw is allowed in the conventional sense, each creature in the area of effect makes an opposed Strength check using the rules for bull rush attacks. The force wave is a Medium creature, not charging, and has a Strength of (12 + 1 per 2 caster levels). Creatures affected by the force wave will automatically be pushed the maximum distance based on the result of the opposed Strength check (5 feet + 1 foot for each point the force wave exceeded the victim in the opposed Strength check) out to the limit of the force wave's area of effect.

The caster does not move, and no attacks of opportunity can be made against the caster as a result of the force wave except for the normal ones for casting spells in melee. Attacks of opportunity may be made against those pushed back by the force wave per the normal bull rush rules.

The results of Ådon's force wave on unattended objects within the spell's area of effect are adjudicated by the DM. Most small objects will be turned over and pushed to the edge of the spell's radius. Larger, heavy objects and braced objects may not be affected. For breaking down doors and other similar uses, assume the force wave has a Strength of (12 + 1 per 2 caster levels).
