I've removed the afteshock part, shrunk the area of effect, and made some other adjustings I don't know.

Well, as you can see at various spells posted here lately, there is a good reason why I try to establish a proper system here, where it is easy to allocate spells into certain categories and then derive from there what this means in terms of a spell sphere, spell class, formula etc.

This way we could avoid I-don't-know-precisely-how-but-I-try-anyway-explanations like "The caster alters all the earth cár'áll around him" and at the same time "The caster focuses his cár’áll in a circular motion, shifting the earth cár'áll as he keeps on casting." I don't see much of a system here. :veryconfused  

Take a look at the "Break Spell" on the site, which I slightly modified when I put it up so that it represents a Sphere 2 spell. It targets the property of Earth you could call "solidity" in a negative way (reducing the solidifying power).

I would say a negative Sphere 1 solidifying would be something like a "Instability" - intention is to simply make the ground loose by dispersing the solidifying earth oúns within the earth cár'áll at the ground. If a permanent gap arises from that, that's fine, but is only a result of the spell BTW, not what the spell actually does.

The negative Sphere 2 solidifying is the Break spell, where rocks are completely seperated from a mountain wall for example due to a change of quality, not because it is only bend.

Sphere 1 makes earth loose, Sphere 2 breaks directly.

However, an earthquake spell (if you mean to mainly generate the force, not the instability) probably is still something different, and I think what could perhaps be targeted here is the elemental force of earth (like we could see electricity as the elemental force of wind, see elsewhere in this Forum).

However, as long as these basic things aren't clear, many things I read here look too much like a shot into the blue sky.
