I want to cast a Fireball... When's the last time you cast a Fireball?


The blog hop and playing Grimmsgate has gotten me thinking about a lot gaming-related things. For some reason, I just got to thinking about the last time I had a character cast fireball. A nice healthy fireball, doing at least 6d6 damage, where the opponent doesn't make a saving throw.

It's been about eight years, unfortunately. I had a 10th level wizard incinerate a charging group of orc warg-riders. A fireball took out most of them and followed it up with a wall of fire. The DM just kinda rolled his eyes and said, "so much for that."

Upper level wizards can be so broken. But they were charging the group across an open field and made such easy target.

When's the last time you had a character cast fireball?

  1. One of the things I like to point out about how broken Mentzer and full on BECMI is the lack of damage caps on fireball. Combined with BECMI's limitless application of Permanency and the suggestion that high level magic users will have cast Permanent Flight/Levitation on themselves, you end up with armies led by flying cannons spamming multiple 50-100 damage fireballs at everything in sight.
