The Legacy of Heroes
CHAOS WAVE (Alteration/Wild)
Range: 30 yards + 10 yard/level
Area of Effect: 60’ cone, 1 creature/level
Saving Throw: Special
The caster releases a wave of chaotic wild magic that can have devastating effects to those caught in its blast radius. The surge radiates from the caster and fans out to a 60’ cone, effecting 1 creature per level of the caster as well as any non-living objects that can be effected by magic (combustible, breakable, etc.)
Once caught in the wave, creatures are able to save vs. spell. If a saving roll is made, the wave has no effect. If failed, they receive 1d4 + 1/per caster level dmg and are subject to 1 of 9 possible outcomes:
Misfire, see below.
Blindness: Mimics ‘Blindness’ spell. Save v. spell negates.
Levitation: Mimics ‘Levitate’ spell. Save v. spell negates.

Fear: Mimics ‘Fear’ spell. Save v. spell negates. Undead are not effected.
Paralyzation: A character or creature affected by paralysis becomes totally immobile for 1d6 rounds. The victim can breathe, think, see, and hear, but he is unable to speak or move in any manner. Save v. paralyzation negates.
