This spell causes a small, localized area of earth or stone to erupt, spewing molten rock, lava, hot gas and dark smoke over the area. Those within the area of the spell suffer 3d8 damage (half bludgeoning, half fire) each round from the flying rocks, superheated toxic gas and streams of lava (Reflex save for half) and are ignited for an additional 1d6 points of damage per round if they fail their save. A character can extinguish burning items as a full-round action. Creatures immune to fire are not affected by the heat or lava, but still suffer half or quarter damage from flying rocks. In addition, the toxic gases cause nausea identical to a stinking cloud spell (Fort negates). Last, the dark, billowing smoke within the area reduces vision to 20 ft.
