You inscribe on a surface (be it a weapon or otherwise) a single rune that lasts for one hour per level. This rune, when activated simply by touch, smites the nearest target within 60 feet with a bolt of lightning, dealing 1d6 points of electricity damage per level of the runes creator, to a maximum of 10d6.
The target creature gets a reflex save for half damage. If they should fail this save, they are only able to act out one action per round for 1d4 rounds, though this can be lifted prematurely by any form of Haste or Restoration.
