Lightning Strike
4th-level Evocation
Casting time: 1 action
Range: 120 feet
Components: V,S,M(A rod of electrum worth at least 150gp)

You reach up into the sky and cast down a tremendous bolt of lightning from the heavens upon one particularly unlucky target and any cronies that are standing nearby.

Target one creature or location within range. The target must be open to the sky, and cannot be indoors. The target must make a Dexterity saving throw, taking 8d8 Lightning damage on a failed save, or half as much on a success.

In addition, each creature within 15ft of the striking point must also make a Dexterity saving throw, taking half of the damage rolled on a failure.

If this spell is cast at an invalid target, or no target was specified, the lightning bolt automatically targets the tallest creature or metal object within range.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 5th level or higher, it deals 1d8 extra Lightning damage for every level above 4th. In addition, when you cast this spell using a spell slot of 6th level or higher, the secondary effect extends 5ft farther for every two levels above 4th.
