Splits apart the ground in front of the caster and sculpts a terrifying weapon out of molten rock. This mortar will move slowly along the lava-filled chasm, autonomously launching gouts of magma at the caster's enemies as it does so.

When it reaches the end of its path, or is obstructed in its movement by another creature, it will sink back into the lava, and the chasm will seal itself shut shortly thereafter.

Hellfire Mortar is a level 7 Fire/Earth spell that creates a line of temporary lava in a chosen direction (even through walls) and spawns a hellfire mortar that moves along that line of lava, firing autonomously at nearby targets while it does so.

The mortar fires Bolts of Magma at up to 2 different random enemy targets each turn, then moves 1 tile further along the path that was carved out for it. When it reaches the end of this path (or a monster blocks its attempt to move), it will disappear.
