Spell which causes grapple – Role-playing Games Stack Exchange

Let me start by pointing out that I’m new to Pathfinder. I’ve played some Dnd and now our DM is migrating our campaing to PF.

I’m planning to build a new character, some necromancer of sorts, and I would very much like for it to have a specific spell.

I’m trying to find a spell (up to lvl 6) which grapples the target. I’m aware of the Strangling Hair lvl 3 spell, and it is quite similar to what I want, but I wanted something that had an area of effect instead of just targeting one creature. My goal is to have something to lock several weak foes into place, so I wouldn’t mind if it is ineffective against strong enemies.

If AoE is not possible, then I would like at least something stronger than Strangling Hair in terms of damage. I also would like to depict the spell as skelleton arms sprouting from the ground and holding the enemies into place, so it is a plus if the spell is somehow connected to this.
