Cost- 2 ST

There has been rumors that a similar spell exists called "Chain Lightning"
I like the idea and have houseruled something similar. I would recommend at least ST 3 to cast though. In my multiple missile spell variant, I imposed a -2 DX penalty per each additional target, so two targets -2 DX 3 targets, -4 DX. You may not have to shift too much, but you are still engaging multiple targets in a 5 second window.

Also, a question, if all three fireballs are fired at one target, is damaged added together, or is each hit treated as a separate attack with armor protecting against each. I think that the latter is what is intended, but I'm unclear.
