The Flame Blade spell creates a flaming blade for the caster to wield. It deals 1d4 slashing damage and 1d2+4 fire damage. Damage dealt to creatures protected from fire is reduced by 2. Creatures with innate connection to fire suffer only from slashing damage. The blade is not magical in the typical sense and, as such, creatures that can be harmed only with magical weapons are not damaged by it.

With this spell, the caster causes a blazing ray of red-hot fire to spring forth from his/her hand. This blade-like ray is wielded as if it were a scimitar. If the caster successfully hits with the flame blade in melee combat, the creature struck suffers 1d4+4 points of damage, with a further damage bonus of +2 (i.e., 7-10 points) if the creature is undead or is especially vulnerable to fire. However, it is not a magical weapon in the normal sense of the term, so creatures (other than undead) struck only by magical weapons are not harmed by it. This spell does not function underwater.
