Gate & Teleport
Rope Trick Regular
Causes a piece of rope from five to 30 feet long to rise into the air
until the whole rope hangs perpendicular, as if affixed at the upper end.
The upper end is, in fact, fastened to an extradimensional space. The
caster and up to seven others can climb up the rope and disappear into
this place of safety where no other creature can find them. The rope can
be taken into the extradimensional space if fewer than eight persons have
climbed it, otherwise it simply remains hanging in the air. Spells
cannot be cast across the extra-dimensional interface, nor do area
effects affect it except through the window. Spells may be cast inside the area or
through the window. The space remains in contact with the real world via the
opening, and those in the extradimensional space can hear and see out of it as if
there were a 3' x 5' window centred on the rope. This window can be seen by
True Sight or located by Seeker. A mage who is outside the space and who can
see the opening may cast spells into the space through the opening.
If the persons in the extradimensional space do not leave it before the
spell expires, or if more then 8 people attempt to enter it, they will simply be
dropped from where the entrance to the
space was. Also note that taking existing extra-dimensional spaces (e.g.
from the hideaway spell into this extradimensional space can be hazardous.
