Upon completing this spell, waves of searing heat radiate out from the caster as he channels the heat of a sun-scorched layer of the Abyss. Everyone within 50 feet of the caster takes 1d10+1 points of fire damage for every two caster levels, to a maximum of 10d10+10 at level 20, with a fortitude save halving the damage.
It should be noted that this spell is not particularly kind to city streets, or indeed to the friends of the caster. But it is impressive to watch your enemies waste away in mere seconds as they waste away from a combination of dehydration, heatstroke, and seriously frightening sunburn.
Worth it? Maybe. . .
