Prismatic Wildwall functions as Prismatic Wall, but it contains fewer colors, and they are in a different order each time. It creates a vertical, opaque wall -- a shimmering, multicolored plane of light that protects you from most attacks. The wall flashes with colors, each of which has a distinct power and purpose. The wall is immobile, and you can pass through and remain near the wall without harm. However, any other creature with less than 8 HD that is within 20 feet of the wall is blinded for 2d4 rounds by the colors if it looks at the wall.

The wall's maximum proportions are 4 feet wide per caster level and 2 feet high per caster level. A prismatic wall spell cast to materialize in a space occupied by a creature is disrupted, and the spell is wasted.

Each color in the wall has a special effect. The accompanying table shows the seven colors possible in the wall, the order in which they normally appear, their effects on creatures trying to attack you or pass through the wall, and the magic needed to negate each color.

The wall can be destroyed, color by color, in consecutive order, by various magical effects; however, the first color must be brought down before the second can be affected, and so on. A rod of cancellation or a mage's disjunction spell destroys a prismatic wildwall, but an antimagic field fails to penetrate it. Dispel magic and greater dispel magic cannot dispel the wall or anything beyond it. Spell resistance is effective against a prismatic wildwall, but the caster level check must be repeated for each color present.

Prismatic Wildwall can be made permanent with a permanency spell.

To determine the configuration of your wall, first roll three times on the Swapping Table, making adjustments to the order of the colors each time. Then, roll on the Removal Table to see which colors are removed. A Wildwall always has five or six colors, never the full seven.

A creature within 20 feet of the wildwall and perfect vision can tell which colors are flashing across the wall. If that creature is familiar with Prismatic Wall and makes a Spellcraft check vs. DC 17 + your adjusted caster level, he can tell in which order your Prismatic Wildwall is arranged.
