Skystrike                    Path of the Flickering Skies Attack

Duration: Instantaneous                              Minimum Cost: 60 mana
Cooldown: 4 hours

Syntax: cast 'skystrike' <target>

Only the foolish readily make enemies of those of the flickering skies,
and the skystrike spell is not least among the reasons why. By coupling
lighting and thunder into a single massive strike, such a mage may cause
significant harm to a foe. This spell may only be cast outdoors, and is
stronger when cast under cloudier skies. The damage is primarily lightning
in nature, but contains a sound element as well; each may be
independently-saved for half. If the sound damage is not saved, the target
will also be briefly stunned.
