I am curious about the extent of damage from the spell Shocking Grasp. According to the spell it targets the person touched. This is clear to me. The questions I have are:
- Does the electricity from this spell act like regular electricity? (example: i step on a live electrical wire and touch a metal bench and shock someone who is sitting on the bench)
- If it does work the same as normal electricity, could you electrocute multiple people at the same time if they are all in contact when one of them is touched with this spell?
Common sense, in the realm of real life, would tell me yes. However, this is magic, it is a first level spell, and real life common sense is not always applicable to the D&D world. If you can answer this with some links to back it up that would be great. But, I have looked around and can't find anything on this.
