Spell Effect. This
spell uses the Element of Water to
generate heavy clouds, which will result in a discharge of energies
resulting in an extremely powerful bolt of lighting from the sky to strike on a
given spot. The strike is so immense that it burns everything in a radius of 1-3
peds from the strike point. When such a bolt is summoned the mage will lose a
great amount of his body water, and therefore also a great part of his
this spell is not often used in combat, unless the mage doesn’t have any other
ways of winning or he is protected very well. Often this
spell is also used to destroy houses or fell trees.
Note: Being a Level XI spell it is very hard to cast when the sky is blue and sunny, as it will drain much more of the caster’s cár'áll to generate the necessary clouds. In a storm however this spell does not require much energy form the caster as it can drain the natural energies, and therefore may be used quite efficiently.
It is important to mention that this spell may not always strike precisely, thus incautious mages may actually be harmed themselves in case they don't keep a certain distance for their own safety. As a general rule this spell tries to strike the highest spot in the area - therefore high towers are easier to hit than flat ground nearby.
Casting Procedure. The mage has to utter the magical formula while holding a crystal of quartz raised against the sky. Often such a crystal is part of the mage's staff. The spell cannot be cast indoor.

Counter Measures/Enhancing Measures. There are not many things capable of stopping this spell, however an earth mage can attempt to pull the bolt towards him (he must be located no more then 30 peds away from the bolt) and then lead it trough him and into the ground. However, this is a very risky operation, as the mage can die in the process if the counter spell is not performed correctly. To succeed the mage must have contact with the ground in a way. If successful the bolt will not do any harm.
