Quicksand

Components: V, S, M (a small amount of water and sand)

Casting Time: 1 minute

Duration: 1 hour

Putrefy Food & Drink

Range: 50 ft.

Area of Effect: Cube of ground, 10 ft. square

Saving Throw: Dex / negates effect

You transform a 10-foot-by-10 foot area of ground or normal dirt, sand, or stone floor you can see into a 10-foot-deep pool of quicksand. Creatures on the transformed area when the spell is cast jump to the nearest safe space with a successful Dexterity saving throw. Creatures that fail the saving throw or that enter the quicksand afterward quickly sink into it; their speed is reduced to 5 feet or to their Swim speed, if they have one. Climbing out of the quicksand requires a successful DC 15 Strength (Athletics) check.

The floor returns to its normal condition at the end of the spell. Any creatures or items in the quicksand when the spell ends are squeezed upward and deposited on top of the surface when it returns to normal.
