Beneath the Borderlands
Range: 100 miles (above ground), 100 yards (below)
Duration: 2 hours
Level: C7, M9
The caster projects his astral form into other places; the astral form is invisible to all creatures but those also traveling the astral plane of existence. The spell has a duration of two hours. If the caster’s physical body is moved more than 100 miles from its original location while the astral form is away, the link is sundered and the caster’s soul becomes lost in the beyond; and if the caster’s body is underground, it need only be moved 100 yards before the connection is broken.
The astral form is capable of casting spells, but there is a 5% chance per spell level that the spell will fail. Additionally, there is a 2% chance per spell level of the attempted spell that the astral spell itself will falter as a result of the spell casting, and the astral form will return to the physical body. When traveling in astral form upon the earth, the astral form may travel as fast as 100 miles per hour per level above 18th. If the form is traveling underground, its top speed is much slower: 120 ft per 10-minute turn. When traveling into the deeper regions beyond the earth, speed and distance are obviously not measured in miles.
