will it do 1d4+2 damage x 1.5 for a 1st lvl sorcerer?
Seems right to me. (1d4 base from spell + 2 brutal bloodline arcana) x 1.5 (swarm subtype), but for only one swarm caught in its area.
Is there something that caused you hesitation about that interpretation?
It was this bit in the arcana:
one target of your choice affected by the spell takes 2 additional hit points of damage
vs this in the swarm type:
A swarm is immune to any spell or effect that targets a specific number of creatures
I wasn't sure whether a swarm was a target.
Ah, well I see the quandry. A swarm is a single target, even if it isn't a single creature, so I still think it should work. But it may suffer from table variation, since it isn't completely straightforward.
