The Empower Spell feat reads:
All variable, numeric effects of an empowered spell are increased by one-half. An empowered spell deals half again as much damage as normal, cures half again as many hit points, affects half again as many targets, and so forth, as appropriate. PHB, p. 93
Does this also apply to the dispel check of Dispel Magic?
dispel check (1d20 + your caster level, maximum +10), PHB, p. 223
And if, does this raise the ceiling of maximum +10 for the caster level?
