By drawing on the power of the sun, you cause your body to emanate fire. Fire extends 5 feet in all directions from your body, illuminating the area and dealing 1d4 points of fire damage per two caster levels (maximum 5d4) to adjacent enemies every round.
Line 55: The AOE effects destroying isn't really needed (along with changing tags). Since it is applied to oCaster, the removal of the viaul effect and spell AOE can be done by removing effects from the caster from this spell (using something like RemoveSpellEffects() ).
Nothing checks for the validity of the creator before running the script fully, unlike the heartbeat.
The spell description states it affects adjacent enemies but this is incorrect: it affects any adjacent creatures, not just enemies, similar to the spell fireball in hardcore mode.
This spell is one of the few offensive Druid spells available at lower levels. It is not very powerful, doing low damage, but can act like a damage shield-like spell, damaging those attacking the druid in melee, or nearby in melee. Also, because of the the way that the zone around the caster is created, it is easy for the player to use the AWSD keys to cause enemies to take damage multiple times per round as the only checks performed are those upon entering the area.
This spell can be cast as an 8th level Persistent Spell.
