From D&D Wiki
|Level:||Sorcerer/Wizard 9, Warmage 9|
|Components:||V, S, M|
|Casting time:||1 standard action|
|Range:||Medium (100 ft. + 10 ft./level)|
|Target:||20 ft. radius emanation|
|Duration:||1 round/spell casting level|
|Saving Throw:||Fortitude half|
This spell summons forth a shrieking maelstrom of magical force that completely fills the target area to a height of 30 ft. Any creature caught in the initial burst suffers 5d6 hit points of damage, though a successful Fortitude save reduces this damage by one-half. For each creature in the area of effect that is killed by the engulfing doom, the radius of the emanation increases by 5 ft. at the beginning of the following round and the damage caused increases by 1d6. If 3 targets are killed by the spell then, at the beginning of the next round, the radius increases by 15 ft. and the damage caused increases by 3d6 to cause a total of 8d6 hit points of damage to all creatures caught in the area of effect. The maximum damage this spell can cause in a given round is 25d6 hit points, but there is no maximum to the area of effect.
Material Component: A globe of obsidian wrapped in alternating bands of gold, silver and copper (1,000 gp value).
