Campaign Design - Spells: Part Crowd (Step Aside)

Part Crowd (Step Aside) (found in the Book of Roguish Luck)
Enchantment (Compulsion)[Mind-Affecting]

Components: V, S
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Medium (100 feet + 10 feet per caster level)
Target, Effect, or Area: Up to 50 living creatures per caster level
Duration: 1 round per caster level
Saving Throw: None
Spell Resistance: Yes

A crowd of 50 or more Small or Medium creatures parts to make way for your passage, immediately closing ranks after you pass. You can take up to one creature with you, plus one more for every three caster levels.

The crowd parts with uncanny speed, allowing you to move at a full run through it with no penalty. The people also fall back into place rapidly, so any pursuers suffer a -50 percent movement penalty as if moving through thick undergrowth. In other words, each square of crowd movement counts as two squares of movement (and diagonal moves into crowd squares count as three squares).

This spell only works on creatures in a crowd that are able to move and are more or less unaware of your presence. Guards and other creatures actively attempting to block you or prevent your movement go unaffected.
