Chains of Fire

Edit Page Content

Chains of fire strikes one object or Creature initially, then arcs to other targets.

The chain deals 1d6 points of fire Damage per Caster Level (maximum 20d6) to the primary target. After it strikes, the fire can arc to a number of secondary targets equal to your Caster Level (maximum 20). The secondary chains each strike one target and deal as much Damage as the primary bolt.

Each target can attempt a Reflex Saving Throw for half Damage. The Reflex DC to halve the Damage of the secondary chains is 2 lower than the DC to halve the Damage of the primary chain. You choose secondary targets as you like, but they must all be within 30 feet of the primary target, and no target can be struck more than once. You can choose to affect fewer secondary targets than the maximum.
