When earlier versions of power word, kill were uttered, the caster could either kill a single creature with a high amount of physical resilience, or multiple creatures with much less resilience, up to a certain total.
If power word, kill was cast as an area spell, it killed creatures in a 15-foot-radius (4.5 meters) sphere. It killed only creatures who had less resilience, and only up to certain total of such creatures. The spell affected creatures with the lowest resilience first, and worked up until it reached its limit.
