Plant Growth is an innate spell ability available to black and green dragons and is similar to the Entangle Spell, but more potent and harder to resist.


By means of this spell, the caster is able to cause plants in the area of effect to entangle creatures within the area. The grasses, weeds, bushes, and even trees wrap, twist, and entwine about the creatures, holding them fast. Once per round, a creature can attempt to save vs. Spell with a -10 penalty to avoid entanglement. An entangled creature can still attack but receives a -2 penalty to its Armor Class.


  • A party member affected by this ability will show the "Entangled" icon in their portrait.
  • This innate spell is unaffected by Magic resistance.
  • The innate spell power of the entangle effects are level 10 spell power, and thus will not be blocked by a Globe of Invulnerability.
  • Affected creatures cannot move but can still attack and cast spells, limiting the usefulness of this spell to enemies that use melee attacks.
  • Entangle can immobilize creatures immune to Web, such as spiders and ettercaps.
  • A Free Action (spell) or item that bestows the Free Action (status effect) would be a good counter to this innate ability.
  • The Plant Growth ability can be dispelled.


  1. Internally, this spell's range is 120 ft. Targets must be within the caster's line of sight, limiting this to roughly 26 feet.
