Intended for enchantment on the prow of a ship or the hull, this effect alters the earth near the ship so that it takes on the consistency of water. The device will trigger (detected via another effect) when any Terram materials approach the ship, or by an activation phrase. It may also be of use for flying ships to soften unexpected landings, as well as getting a ship inland or beached safely.
