They say that the evocation magic we use is a pale shadow of the spells of the ancient evokers. They could turn a lightning bolt and have it rebound off the walls, or shock their enemies in new and creative ways. Their magic was stronger and more versatile than the basic blasts of now.

This acts like lightning bolt with the following changes. Ur Lightning Bolt can choose to rebound off flat surfaces such as walls and mirrors instead of blasting through, changing its direction appropriately in any degree except straight back. Through this, it is possible to strike many creatures which are not in a straight line. No matter how many times a bolt crosses over a creature, it only takes damage once from the spell. The spell now has a cap of 20d6 at 20th level.

Also, when striking conductive areas such as water, the bolt continues through and electrified everything in a 20 ft. radius out from the lightning bolt, dealing half its normal damage to all targets not directly hit.

Finally, lightning bolt is super effective against creatures in heavy metal armor or ferrous creatures. Against them, the DC is +2 higher than normal.

Ur Lightning Bolt counts as lightning bolt for all spells and effects.

Material Component: A bit of fur and an amber, crystal, glass rod, or a hair from a grognard.
