Ball Lightning

School evocation [air, electricity]; Level druid 4, sorcerer/wizard 4

Casting Time 1 standard action

Components V, S, M/DF (a small iron ring)

Range medium (100 ft. + 10 ft./level)

Effect two or more 5-ft.-diameter spheres

Duration 1 round/level

Saving Throw Reflex negates; Spell Resistance yes

You create two globes of lightning that fly in whichever direction you indicate. For every 4 caster levels above 7th, you create an additional globe of lightning (3 globes at 11th, 4 globes at 15th, to the maximum of 5 globes at 19th). These globes fly at a rate of 20 feet per round and have perfect maneuverability. Wind does not affect a flying sphere's course.

If a globe enters a space with a creature, it stops moving for the round and deals 3d6 points of electricity damage to that creature, though a successful Reflex save negates the damage. Creatures wearing metal armor take a –4 penalty on this saving throw.

Each globe moves as long as you actively direct it (it's a move action for you to direct all the spheres created by a single casting of this spell); otherwise they stay at rest. These globes have no mass and cannot push aside unwilling creatures or move solid objects. A ball lightning globe winks out if it exceeds the spell's range.
