Here's a 3.5 meteor swarm. Question: when is the Spell Resistance check made? Each time a creature is struck by a meteor?
looks like each creature makes only 1 resist no matter how many meteors are going to hit it.
1 spell = 1 resist
Not sure about spell resistance, but according to the SRD a creature must save separately against each meteor, which probably makes it easier to code. It looks like they changed that in 5e.

y there's a save vs each meteor ... at least in the scripts i'm looking at ... but only for Fire (Cold, if druid) damage, and only if a TouchAttack misses. There's also a bit of peripheral Bludgeoning damage without save, but this needs to hit with the TouchAttack.so, yeah... messy scripts
What about spell mantles? Each meteor rips 9 levels?
Yeah, I'll stay with one SR per spell not per meteor. It rips the strongest mantles in a blink of an eye otherwise.
