Gil-Lachel, the legendary elven fire sorceror, once spent several weeks communing with creatures from the Plane of Fire in an attempt to learn their secrets. The incredible strain this put on his mind made him insane for almost a month afterward, but sparked the invention of one of his most impressive spells.

The caster of this spell momentarily transforms into an incredible creature of pure flame, shooting relentlessly forward in the direction desired out to the full range of the spell (60ft) before reverting to their original form. All creatures within the caster’s path take 1d6 fire damage per caster level (reflex half), to a maximum of 10d6 damage. Flammables (such as paper) in the area of effect are set alight, as with a Fireball spell.

The caster moves instantaneously, provoking no attacks of opportunity for doing so, and takes no damage from any fire sources he moves through. The spell allows him to move freely through semi-solid or easily flammable barriers (such as a porticullis or curtain), but the caster must attempt a strength check in order to break down solid doors and the like. If he would be unable to return to his normal form when the spell ends (such as being inside a space too small for him to fit), he re-forms in the nearest suitable space.
