School Evocation [light, force]; Level Druid 5, Sorcerer/Wizard 5
Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S, M/DF (powdered moonstone)
Range Medium (100 ft. + 10 ft./level)
Effect Glowing, translucent bridge or stair, up to 20 ft. wide, of length up to 15 ft./level
Duration 1 minute/level (D)
Saving Throw none (see text); Spell Resistance no
Rarity Rare

You create a stair or bridge made of solid moonlight from one spot to another. The effect is a railless ribbon of glowing white translucent force like a glass strip. Once created, the bridge is immovable. The end points do not have to be placed on solid surfaces— they can even be placed in midair. The strip can be from 3 to 20 feet wide as you decide. You can vary the width over the moon path’s length if you want.

At the time of casting, you may designate up to one creature per caster level to be under the effect of a sanctuary spell. This works exactly like the 1st-level spell of the same name except that the save DC is for a 5th-level spell, and any subject of the spell who attacks breaks the sanctuary effect for all subjects. Protected creatures also gain a +10 circumstance bonus to Acrobatics checks while on the moon path. A creature loses both benefits immediately when it leaves the path.

A moon path must be straight, continuous, and unbroken when formed. If its surface is broken by any object or creature, the spell fails. The bridge version of the spell must be flat. The stair version cannot rise or descend any more sharply than 45 degrees.

The moon path cannot be dispelled, but can be brought down by the same means as a wall of force.
