Campaign Design - Spells: Surtan's Farstrike

Surtan's Farstrike (from Relics & Rituals; originally Ganest's Farstrike)
Evocation [Fire]

Casting Time: 1 standard action

Surtan's farstrike creates a bolt of flame that flies from the caster's finger to strike any single target within the caster's sight. The caster's sight may be augmented with eyes of the eagle or other effects that improve his natural vision, but visions based on scrying or similar effects do not aid in targeting this spell. Surtan's farstrike does 1d4 points of damage per caster level (maximum 10d4) and has a chance of setting anything flammable it hits on fire. The bolt flies in a parabolic arc, and thus can be seen coming from a distance, allowing the target time to get out of the way, resulting in a Reflex save to negate all damage. Due to the parabolic arc, the spell requires overhead clearance equal to one-third the distance the bolt travels, which usually makes the spell only useful outdoors.
