    Default Widen Spell

    Why is this spell not in the game? I think it would be really cool and it would make AOE spells a little more viable.

    The only place I could see this working is in explorer areas.....In dungeons we are pretty cramped. I would not pick this up as a feat. Larger Blade Barrier perhaps? I have no probs getting melle to group when calling out haste in 3...2...1

    No, its not. As per the SRD http://www.d20srd.org/srd/spells/bladeBarrier.htm

    An immobile, vertical curtain of whirling blades shaped of pure force springs into existence. Any creature passing through the wall takes 1d6 points of damage per caster level (maximum 15d6), with a Reflex save for half damage.

    AoE spells have pretty good radius in quests - and a Widened Wall of Fire would be broken just about anywhere.

    I'm all for more options, but I can see why this particular metamagic was left out of the game.
