For the SR version of the spell, see Lightning Bolt.
Range: 70 ft.
Casting Time: 3
Area of Effect: Path of bolt
Saving Throw: 1/2
Upon casting this spell, the wizard releases a powerful stroke of electrical energy that inflicts 1d6 points of damage per level of the caster (maximum damage of 10d6) to each creature within its area of effect. A successful Saving Throw vs. Spell reduces this damage to half (round fractions down). If the lightning bolt intersects with a wall, it will bounce until it reaches its full length.
