The sky seemed to darken as a thin beam of light illuminated the lich. Suddenly there was a flash as bright as the sun as the lich, and much of his surroundings, were turned into fine white ash.
This spell fires a beam of light down from the sky, vaporizing a target and its surroundings on impact with a fantastic amount of light. The target takes 2d6 points of damage/level and is permanently blinded, with a Fortitude save for half damage and no blinding, instead being dazzled for 1 round/level. An area as small as a 10 ft. radius or as large as a 60 ft. radius (caster's choice) is also struck, creatures taking half the damage of the target and blindness for 1 round/level. A successful save halves that damage (again) and negates the blindness completely. Creatures killed by this spell turn to ash. Spell resistance applies to the damage but not the blindness.
This spell counts as disintegrate for the purpose of interacting with spells and effects. Against unattended non-magical objects the light bores though and turns everything to ash, destroying a 5 ft deep layer per caster level. For example, a 20th level casting can bore a 100 ft deep hole up to 60 ft in radius.
The shape is effectively a cylinder of infinite height, emanating somewhere in space. As such, the spell is best used in clear open skies. If there are obstructions, such as a roof, it burns through provided it can pierce deep enough; otherwise, it is stopped early. The beam disperses after it reaches its target and does not continue burrowing downward. The flash from this attack can be seen for miles.
Focus: A spyglass worth 100 gp.
