Grasping Hand

evocation [force]

Level: sorcerer/wizard 7

This spell functions as interposing hand, except that it can also grapple one opponent you select. The grasping hand gets one grapple attack per round. This attack does not provoke an attack of opportunity. Its attack bonus to hit the target equals your caster level + your Intelligence modifier (Charisma modifier for Sorcerers) +10 for its Strength score (31) –1 for being Large. Its combat maneuver bonus for grapple checks uses your caster level in place of its base attack bonus, with a +10 bonus for its Strength score, and a +1 bonus for being Large. The hand holds but does not harm creatures that it grapples. Directing the spell to a new target is a move action.

The grasping hand can instead be directed to bull rush a target, using the same bonuses outlined above, or it can be directed to interpose itself, as interposing hand does.
