Syntax: cast 'gravity well'

Perhaps one of the most formidable spells of earth, gravity well changes
the nature of local gravity within an area. Movement costs increase
dramatically for any who are not stabilized, and those who attempt to fight
in this region will find it difficult to retain their balance in combat.
This well of gravity will prevent all means of flight in the area, and will
furthermore increase the effective weight of all worn and carried objects
for the purposes of encumbrance.
