With this spell the sorcerer creates a storm of razor-sharp bamboo shards that can be directed against a particular target or group of targets. The storm inflicts 1d4 points of damage for each 2 MPs invested in it. It is effective up to Close range (25 feet) and can be concentrated at either an individual target, which sustains the full-force of the damage or are a group of targets, in which the rolled damage is divided by the number in the group (rounding fractions down). The target(s) of the spell are permitted a Reflexes saving throw to attempt to duck or avoid the storm, reducing the damage sustained by half if successful. The sorcerer must be surrounded by bamboo or have at least three naturally growing bamboo plants within 25 feet for this spell to be effective.
