Description

This spell causes a gout of flame to leap from your fingers, burning an enemy nearby, then leaping from that enemy to a second, a third, etc as the caster grows more powerful. It deals (Circle 2 damage): 1d6 points of damage per character level (max 6d6 at character level 6) points of fire (energy, common) damage.
Each target can attempt a saving throw as described above for half damage. The caster may choose targets as they like, but all targets must be within the cone area of effect at least partially, and no target can be struck more than once. The caster can choose to affect fewer targets than the maximum if they wish.
