A phantasmal hand made out of burning fire contained in force energy appeared, grabbed the vampire, and squeezed until he exploded.

This spell functions like interposing hand, forceful hand, and grasping hand, able to interpost, push, pull, and crush. It can grapple with a grapple bonus equal to your caster level + your modifier for spellcasting, +10 for the hand’s Strength score (31), +4 for being Large. The burning hand deals 2d6+10 points of damage and 2d6+10 fire damage on each successful grapple check against an opponent. Even when not actively making grapple checks it retains a grip rolling only opposed grapple checks to retain its hold, and deals its fire damage each round it holds a grip on a creature. Creatures striking the hand with natural weapons, unarmed strikes, or within 5 ft are also subject to the fire damage.

Grappled creatures can be moved around. They may make a Fortitude save or be moved up to 60 ft, or 5 ft on a successful saving throw. This movement does not provoke attacks of opportunity.

The hand is immune to Fire and Force effects. If the hand is destroyed, dismissed, or dispelled the hand collapses and detonates explosively into a 20 ft radius fireball that deals 1d6 half fire/half force damage per level (no cap) with a Reflex save for half. Creatures grappled by the hand when it explodes get no save.

Material Component: A glove made of leather from a [Fire] subtype creature.
