Area of Effect:
When this spell is employed, the magic-user causes any ropelike object of non-living material to behave as he or she orders. The subject can be string, yarn, cord, line, rope, or even a cable. About 50’ of normal rope (1 inch diameter), plus 5’ per level of the spell caster, can be affected. Reduce length proportionately when diameter increases, and increase length by 50% when diameter is halved. The commands possible to give under a bind spell are: Coil (form a neat, coiled stack); Coil & Knot; Loop; Loop & Knot; Tie & Knot; and the revers- es of all of the above (Uncoil, etc.). The rope or other ropelike object must be within about 1 foot of any object in order for it to respond properly, so it must usually be thrown or hurled nearby. Any creature affected by the ropelike object can, of course, interact with it as if it were a normal object. The creature’s hold overrides the dweomer on the rope, and the rope takes 2 points of slashing damage before breaking. The rope cannot be used as a garrot, but can be used as a trip line or to entangle (as the druid spell) a single opponent. The dweomer does not cause the rope to have magical properties beyond its ability to obey commands (cf. rope of climbing, rope of entanglement).
