Description:   This spell causes instant diminution of a creature or object, decreasing its size and weight. Its height shrinks by up to 10% per caster level, to a maximum reduction of 50%. The reduced weight is proportional to the cube of the new height, as follows:

Height Decrease	Weight Decrease
---------------	---------------
–10% (x 0.9) 	–30% (x 0.7)
–20% (x 0.8) 	–50% (x 0.5)
–30% (x 0.7) 	–60% (x 0.4)
–40% (x 0.6) 	–80% (x 0.2)
–50% (x 0.5) 	–90% (x 0.1)

All equipment worn or carried by a creature is reduced by the spell. Magical properties are not decreased by this spell—a smaller +3 sword is still +3, a smaller wand is still capable of its normal functions, and a smaller dose of a potion still has its normal effects. Weight, mass, and strength are affected, though. Thus, a hurled stone would have less mass (and cause less damage), chains would be easier to burst, a rope made thinner and easier to sever, and so on. A creature’s hit points, Armor Class, and attack rolls do not change, but Strength decreases with size. For every 10% of reduction, a creature’s Strength score suffers an enlargement penalty of –1, to a minimum score of 1.

A shrinking object may damage weaker materials affixed to it, but a reduced object shrinks only as long as the object itself is not damaged.

Multiple magical effects that reduce size do not stack.

Reduce counters and dispels enlarge.
