Chain Lightning Missile
Creates an electrical discharge that begins as a single stroke of
lightning. The first creature hit will take maximum damage from the
spell. The electrical discharge will then arc to the nearest creature
within five hexes (with a preference for those wearing metal armour).
The secondary target will take 1d less damage than the first target.
The electrical discharge will then arc to a third target, dealing 2d
less damage than to the original target and so on until the damage is
reduced to zero. Note that this can be a dangerous spell to cast as the
caster is as vulnerable to the effects as anyone else and the path of
the chain lightning can be impossible to predict.
Cost: 2-10, 2 per 1d damage
