Campaign Design - Spells: Pounce

Pounce (from Wrath & Rage: A Guidebook to Orcs & Half-Orcs)

Level: Savagery 3, Sorcerer/Wizard 2
Components: V, S, M
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Close (25 feet + 5 feet per 2 caster levels)
Target, Effect, or Area: One creature
Duration: 1 round per caster level
Saving Throw: Fortitude negates (harmless)
Spell Resistance: Yes (harmless)

This spell warps and twists the legs of it's subject, giving them prodigious leaping ability. The transformed creature gains the musculature and leaping ability of a hunting cat.

The subject of the spell receives a +30 enhancement bonus on running Jump checks (which does not stack with the effects of the jump spell), and its base speed is increased by 10 feet. If the subject can leap onto an opponent during the first round of combat, it can take the full attack action even if it has already taken a move action.

Material component: A bone gnawed by a great cat.
