Re: Meteor Swarm Lightning Variant
You don't need a new spell, just use the Energy Substitution feat or the archmage class feature (or just let him have a lightning version).
Otherwise, I don't see any problem with this one...maybe the line(s) is a bit long.
Think that magic is broken in 3.5? Might I suggest this?
(It's a PDF, give it a sec to load. Despite the title, it is not psionics; it's the magic system you know and love, changed to use spell points instead of slots. Also, every caster is a spontaneous caster, every spell has been rebalanced and many are meshed together.)
