Paralysis spell?
« on: June 17, 2014, 05:44:17 PM »
I was looking through curses the other day and it struck me that there aren't any curses that prevent a creature from moving. Sure, there is enfeeble to slow down a creature, but why not have a curse that restrains creatures the same way tanglevine or force hold do? And you could call it "paralysis"? The spell could have a timer on it (to prevent it from being OP) and would most likely have a cost proportional to the level of the target creature (just like how Sleep works).

Stumble and the cripple condition comes to my mind.

And then force hold and force crushed, followed by tangle vine and stuck condition.

But I'm talking about curses. There aren't any current curses that restrict movement. It would be nice if the dark mages could have a way to restrict movement that would cost less spellpoints.

Enfeeble is already the most efficient movement restriction in the game.

This is probably why there is no such curse.
