Not a spell I have used much. Let us try to walk thru it.
Projected at a specific target. Okay.
If the spell succeeds, presumably using a roll using
MEL and EL on the Rule 6.13 The Magic Table.
and on a second roll, The second roll will be using
The Combat Table from Rule 1.
a hit or better is scored on the combat table Hit, Severe and
using the EL as the OCV Thus caster's EL minus target's
DCV gets the Base Line on the combat table
the target is dead. So far so good. The target
had two chances to affect the outcome.
MDV vs first
roll and DCV vs the second. If the roll was a Hit or better the target dies.
In any other case The spell worked but the
above roll on the Combat Table was a shield hit or miss.
success with the second roll,
presumably on a shield hit or miss. (miss is arguable)
results in scoring the damage below. in which case the
following tells how much damage is done.
The base line on the combat table equals MEL + EL. Recalculate ignoring
OCV and DCV and using MEL+EL for BL
better chance of hit or shield hit. (Or Snider spaced out.)
Damage equals 3D6+EL
Exception Light afflicted get
killed even by shield hits and take more damage from a miss.
My take on the spell. Alex Koponen
PS One could argue that on the second roll a miss (not being a success)
should result in no damage.
