I'd raise the question of specificity -- if the caster points "up in the air" while outside, where is he actually pointing? Could be any position from just above his hand to that 300 foot limit (or well beyond, causing the spell to fail). Much more useful to precipitate the victim into the Astral Plane. That said, if you have a single creature to deal ...

In 5e, spells which deal damage require an Attack roll or a Saving throw. The lack of a Saving throw makes this spell OP at 5th level.

I find it quite helpful. http://media.wizards.com/2015/downloads/dnd/DnD_Conversions_1.0.pdf Quick Conversion In third edition, you can use monster ...

Something that might solve the problem a different way is the GURPS Dungeon Fantasy line. This is a set of supplements that use GURPS' flexibility to implement a D&D-style fantasy game. It doesn't have big settings like Eberron or Forgotten Realms, but people use D&D settings with it quite successfully. The basic way it works is to provide GURPS ...
