This spell is an alternate version of Meteor Swarm. instead of Fireball this spell uses Lightning Bolt. it projects four 240-ft lines of lightning from your fingertips. each line deals 6d6 points of electricity damage (reflex half). you may elect to aim at a specific creature, in which case you roll a ranged touch attack. if you hit, they take 2d6 points of peircing damage and aren't allowed to save against the bolt.
This is a spell I am designing for my brother (who plays a Sorcerer who uses lightning) he always says that too many creatures have resistance or immunity to fire. I thought this might work. Please post your opinions.
Sounds great. I think it's a bit underpowered (most direct-damage evocation spells are), so I would note that the piercing damage ignores spell resistance. If you really want to have fun with it, you could let the mage fire the next three bolts from any point along a previously fired bolt.
