    Default Meteor Swarm Lightning Variant

    Spears of the Blue Dragon
    Evocation [Electricity]
    Level: Sor/Wiz 9
    Components: V, S
    Casting Tim: 1 standard action
    Range: 240 ft
    Area: Four 240-ft lines
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw:None or Reflex half
    Spell Resistance: Yes

    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. after the first line, other lines may be projected from anywhere on the lines length, and others from them, etc. 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. if a lightning bolt is branched from that point, then the electricity damage becomes 12d6, with DR and spell resistance applying once.

    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.
