Earth Release: Added-Weight Rock Technique
Ninjutsu (Earth Release)
|Casting Time:||Standard Action|
|Area:||Target Creature; Object|
|Duration:||1 round/caster level|
A technique which enhances the target's gravity at the user's discretion. The enemy's mobility is diminished, as the person is crushed by gravity — and in some cases exhibit petrification-like symptoms and then began to crumble. When this technique is applied to the user it decreases their speed, but the increased weight drastically improves their strength. This method makes it possible for even a weak person to land a devastating hit.
This technique requires a touch attack to be applied to the intended target. The target must make a Fortitude save in order to avoid being affected by this technique. If the target fails, or is willing to accept the jutsu, they are treated as having a cumulative +2 strength bonus and a -2 dexterity bonus and a -10 speed penalty per caster level of the character using the jutsu. This does not translate to real ability score damage or enhancement, though if the dexterity penalty or the target's speed should fall to 0 they are treated as being helpless as their own gravity makes it impossible for them to move. In addition, their physical attacks and weapon attacks are treated as being one size category higher (for targets of colossal level, they instead deal maximum damage on their rolls).
