Evocation (Fire)

A fiery, whiplike tongue shoots forth from the caster's mouth and lashes out at the target. With a successful ranged touch attack, the caster deals 1d6 points of fire damage +1 per two caster levels (maximum +10). Because the fiery tongue can wrap around a target's leg or other limb, a caster who succeeds on the tanged touch attack may attempt to trip the target. if unsuccessful, the defender may not immediately try to trip the caster.

Instead of dealing damage and trying to trip, the caster may attempt to disarm an opponent with the flame tongue. First, the caster makes a ranged touch attack against the target. Doing so does not provoke an attack of opportunity. The caster then makes another ranged touch attack and the target makes an opposed melee attack roll. Treat the flame tongue as a Medium size weapon. otherwise resolve the attack as a disarm attempt. If the caster fails to disarm the target, the target may not immediately attempt to disarm the caster.
