Based upon the epic spell Balefire, this spell generates a lesser ray of magical energy. Make a ranged touch attack against every creature or unattended object between you and your target; all take 2d6/level force damage (maximum 50d6). In addition, creatures of 11-25HD must make a Fortitude save or die. Creatures with 10 or fewer HD are destroyed immediately with no save, while creatures of 26+ HD do not have to make the Fortitude save. Any creature killed by this spell, either by failing the Fortitude save or from damage taken are destroyed utterly, along with all their gear. No mortal magic can return them to life.
Special: When you cast this spell, you take 2d4 points of temporary ability damage to your primary spell-casting ability score, and d6 points of temporary ability damage to all of your physical abilities (Strength, Dexterity, and Constitution). This ability damage may not be prevented in any way.
XP Cost: 750 XP.
