DESCRIPTION

Obliteration is one of the mightiest forms of destructive power, able to ravage a creature with devastating result. Each round you concentrate (including the first), you can cause one creature to be assaulted by ruinous power, inflicting 10 points of damage per caster level. A successful save reduces the damage to 4d6. If you break concentration, the script immediately ends, though any damage remains. You can target a particular creature only once with each casting of obliteration.

Overload: For every runic charge overloaded into this script, you can use obliteration for 1 round without concentration (this does not increase its duration), and targets that make their saving throw take an additional 2d6 damage per charge on a successful saving throw (max 10d6). If you use four destruction charges, you can target a creature twice with a single casting of obliteration.
