# Question about multiple targeted spells

### Rules Questions

OK...this is more about a psionic power (DSP's Energy Missile) then a spell but it should all be the same!

Suppose a spell/power says this for Targets:

"Up to five creatures or unattended objects; no two targets can be more then 15 ft. apart."

Does this mean...

a Chain? That is you can select a chain of targets in any configuration as long as each is within 15' of the previous target?

or a Box? No two targets can be further then 15' from each other, which effectively means the two targets furthest from each other, and that each much be within 15' of all other targets?

Less of a box and more of a circle with a 15' diameter. But yeah, every single target has to be within 15' of every single other target. If any target is more than 15' from any other target, then the targets are invalid.

So if they all have to be in 15' of each other, then they have to fit in the following grid:

(extra spaces added here so my avatar doesn't mess up the lines)

X = empty square
O = the grid they have to fit it.

X X X X X X
X X O O X X
X O O O O X
X O O O O X
X X O O X X
X X X X X X

Thanks much!
