Drawing foul power from the flaming pits of the Dark Lands, you unleash Algadon’s burning creation. Three streams of hellfire erupt from your body, lashing out towards enemies within range. You gain a fourth ray at 25th level, and a fifth at 30th level. Each ray requires a ranged touch attack and deals 8d8 points of hellfire damage and 1 point of Strength drain. As these forces are drawn towards the animating force of your foes, the streams can only target animate creatures, but you gain a +2 profane bonus on your touch attacks with this spell. Against good-aligned enemies, this increases to a +6 profane bonus.
Bringing forth this energy requires a toll be paid to Algadon. Whenever this spell is cast, the caster suffer 2 points of Constitution damage, or 2 point of Charisma damage if the caster lacks a Constitution score. (This ability damage ignores any resistances or immunities).
Hellfire damage cannot normally be resisted, but counts as fire damage whenever advantageous to it.
