Druid 3,
Components: V, S, M,
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Personal
Target: You
Duration: 1 round/level (D)

You push a thorn against
your skin to complete the spell. Instead of piercing your skin, the thorn melds
into it. An instant later, hundreds of similar thorns sprout all over your body.

Your skin sprouts thorns
when this spell is cast, increasing the damage you deal with an unarmed strike
and making you difficult to grab. As well as dealing lethal damage with your
unarmed strikes (if you don’t already do so), you deal an extra 1d6 points of
piercing damage (so that a human under the effect of thornskin would deal 1d3
points of bludgeoning damage + 1d6 points of piercing damage with an unarmed
strike). In addition, any creature that hits you with a natural weapon or unarmed
strike (including all successful grapple checks) takes 5 points of piercing

A creature’s damage reduction,
if any, applies to the damage from this spell. The damage from thornskin is
treated as piercing for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.

Material Component: A thorn.
