Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S
Range close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
Effect 1-ft. diameter sphere of force
Saving Throw Reflex half (see text); Spell Resistance yes
A 1-foot diameter black sphere of force forms above your open palm. Using a ranged touch attack, you throw the ball at any living or non-living target, including objects and structures. For every 5 feet that the sphere travels before impact, it grows 1 foot in diameter. Upon striking, the sphere delivers 1d8 points of force damage per foot of diameter. For example, a sphere that travels 20 feet to its target makes impact at a diameter of 5 feet and deals 5d8 points of damage. The declared target of the spell does not receive a saving throw, but other creatures that end up in the final impact area of the sphere can make a Reflex save for half damage.
