Upon uttering the first strike spell, affected creatures are guaranteed a “1” on their next initiative roll, but only on the next roll. After that roll, or after the duration of the spell, the effect is no longer available. If opponents also roll a “1,” then both act simultaneously. The caster determines at what range (up to 30 yards) he will cast the spell. At the instant the spell is completed, it affects all creatures in a 50-foot cube centered on the point selected by the caster (thus, affected creatures leaving the area are still subject to the spell’s effect; those entering the area after the casting is completed are not).

In addition to the verbal and somatic gesture components, the first strike spell requires quicksand.
