Who needs a strong arm when one can be created this easily?

You evoke a translucent (but not invisible) hand of force that can gently pick up items. In order to have the hand pick up, move, or manipulate an item, you must concentrate on the spell (a standard action). If you cease concentration, the hand stops in place, but does not drop what it is holding.

The hand can move an object weighing no more than 250 pounds up to 20 feet per round. A creature can negate the effect on an object it possesses with a successful Strength check, opposed by your key ability modifier check. The hand can be move across the ground or through the air. This spell ends if the hand moves out of range.

You can freely have the hand drop a weight and pick up another during the spell’s duration. Assume the hand travels instantaneously within spell range when not holding an object.

An object held by the hand can be manipulated as if you were holding it with one hand.

If you spend at least 5 rounds concentrating on an unattended object, you can have the hand attempt to break or burst it as if making a Strength check, except that you apply your key ability modifier to the check instead of your Strength modifier.

Augment: For every additional spell point you spend, the weight limit of the target increases by 25 pounds.
