    In descriptions of this Dark Force power, they state that it causes excruciating pain to the victim but never describing how they actually feel.

    For example, in a story I'm writing about princess Nerwin that I stated in another thread she undergoes a similar ordeal and I'm having trouble in describing how she feels.

    So far, I'm considering "like being stung thousands of times over" or "like her insides were being ripped to shreds".

    I would imagine it would be like being hit with a taser, or a cattle prod, or a bunch of jellyfish stings x1000.

    What I ended up putting in my story is that when the power of the attack increased, “the lightning now tore through her body with such speed and ferocity, it felt like she was being ripped to shreds”.

    It would feel pretty bad, I'm sure.

    Without the need for a sweater??

    Lol, just kidding!! :) I will tell you that I've been hit with 120 AND 277 volts. Getting hit with 120 volts is a shocker initially (no pun intended) until it's happened a few times, and then it'll just make you yell out an expletive, but with 277 volts, it'll potentially knock you off of your feet and is nothing to laugh about, but LIGHTNING....I can't imagine.

    i know someone who who came from a family prone to be struck by lightning:



    he had an extended version of this on NPR that was clearer and more detailed, but it looks like it wasn't archived.
    interestingly, the experience for him was "shocking" but not especially painful.

    Given the fact that there's a lot of smoke involved, I'd imagine the person heats up from the inside...almost like a slow but focused burn. Luke's cries of pain seemed to be more from high-voltage electrical shock, but that's a given with lightning.

    I suggest a feeling that a fresh wound is being strike by a blade all over again. I hope this helps.

    I imagine it's very painful.
