Slows creatures in an area.
Original D&D[edit | edit source]
Debuted in Men & Magic, for the magic-user.
- Spell Level 3
- Duration 3 turns
- Range 24"
No explicit effect is given, though it presumably slows creatures. It is noted that the spell affects up to 24 creatures in a 6" by 12" area, and that it will counter a haste spell (and vice-versa).

Slow[edit | edit source]
Debuted in the Player's Handbook as a magic-user spell.
|Level: 3||School: Alteration|
|Components: V, S, M (a drop of treacle)|
|Range: 9" + 1"/level||Casting Time: 3 segments|
|Duration: 3 rounds + 1 round/level||Saving Throw: None|
|Targets: 1 creature/level in a 4" by 4" area|
Reduces each target's movement and attack rate by half. It thus undoes a haste spell. It will also stack with itself, slowing creatures already slowed even further.
