Duration: 1 Round/Level
Area of Effect: 1" Sq/Level
Casting Time: 6 Segments
Saving Throw: Special
When this spell is cast the magic user causes a wall of force to appear and fill the room of corridor up the the space equal to a 1" square per level. After the wall appears it will begin to move forward at a rate of 12" round.
The wall will move forward in a straight line until such time as it can not move forward any more. It will shrink to fit through spaces but will not alter course only moving along the corridor.
If anyone is caught in front of the wall and can not out run it they will be swept along with the wall. Should the wall pass an opening where those caught in the sweeping motion could jump into they can attempt to do so by making a saving throw versus paralyzation. If the wall encounters an obstacle it can not move forward past those caught by it will be trapped between the two until such time as the spell expires. For each round so trapped they will suffer 1d6 of damage.
Disclaimer: The spells that you will see, for how ever long the write ups last, were all written up or conceived of back in the 80's so the terminology may not appropriate for anything other than 1e and depending on how well I did back then it may be slightly off for that as well. If there is any duplication of spells that exist now it is most likely I wrote mine first :) Please feel free to comment on them but try not to be too hard on me. If anyone wishes to use these in anything they print please let me know in advance and all I ask is proper credit.
