When this spell is cast, you may choose to channel the spell for up to 24 seconds (4 rounds) to increase the destructive force of the spell at the risk of damaging yourself. This spell can be cast without the material components by using one's arm/handheld focus as the point of focus, which is extremely dangerous for the caster.
This spell deals 1d6 fire damage and adds weapon damage to the total damage if cast via a bow or crossbow. The damage of this spell progresses by 1d6 every turn it is held until it reaches 4d6 fire damage, in which case the spell fires violently, dealing half the damage it deals back to the wielder.
The spell deals recoil damage at 3d6 and 4d6 charge levels but it deals recoil damage at 2d6, 3d6, and 4d6 charge levels if cast without materials. When this spell is fired at full charge, the spell damages all targets within 5ft of your target; this area damage is not added to the recoil damage.
At Higher Levels. The damage of this cantrip increases by 1d6 at 5th level (2d6, max 5d6), 11th level (3d6, max 6d6), and 17th level (4d6, max 7d6)
