Wooden buildings laugh at fireballs. Energy damage applied to objects is first halved, and then reduced by hardness. So a fireball that hits a simple wooden door (10hp, 5 hardness) would need to deal 30 (!) damage to destroy it. So a level 9 wizard on average.
If you think about it, this makes sense. Wood is actually not very "burny." To use wood for a fire, you have to take the effort of making sure it's dry and then build the fire up really carefully.Energy Attacks wrote:Some energy types might be particularly effective against certain objects, subject to GM discretion. For example, fire might do full damage against parchment, cloth, and other objects that burn easily.I don't think it's unreasonable for a GM to rule that an explosion of fire is particularly effective against wood. That said, a dedicated blastet is doing more than level d 6 damage.
Keep in mind, most wizards, blasters or otherwise, don't want their fireballs to deal full damage to wood. Imagine you have a nice little brawl in the corrupt noble's mansion. He drops a fireball, and all the walls in a 30ft burst disintegrate and the roof collapses :p
