Grappling Hook

Transmutation

  • Level: Swordmage 1
  • Casting Time: 1 attack action
  • Range: Close (25 ft. + 2 ft/2 levels)
  • Duration: Grapple
  • Spell Resistance: Yes

Throwing a lengthy chain tipped with hooked barbs, the Swordmage ensnares his foe, who suddenly seems as light as a feather, and crushes him.

The Swordmage who uses this Incantation makes a ranged touch attack against a foe, and if successful makes a Grapple check, made as if the Swordmage had the Improved Grapple feat. The Grapple check also ignores all size bonuses or penalties, and uses the Swordmage's Charisma modifier in place of his Strength modifier. If successful, the foe is dragged into the Swordmage's square or the Swordmage is dragged to the foe's square, at the Swordmage's discretion, and takes 2d6 Constriction damage each round until the Grapple is broken or the Swordmage uses another Incantation or attack.

This Incantation can also be used to pull the Swordmage up cliffs and the like, provided there is a sturdy and appropriately-sized target to latch on to.
