Chaos bolt is a spell used by sorcerers, most often chaos sorcerers. When cast, chaos bolt shoots a blast of multicolored light out from a sorcerer's implement towards the head of an enemy within fifty feet, filling their mind with wracking pain in a telepathic attack. Enhanced and fueled by a sorcerer's charisma like virtually all sorcerer spells, chaos bolt grows in potency as the sorcerer casting it grows more powerful. The bolt, when powered by the wild magic of a chaos sorcerer, has unpredictable effects. It may simply injure the target or it may lash out and strike another target within twenty-five feet of the first. If this happens, it is possible that it would strike yet another target within twenty-five feet. Regardless of its exact effects, chaos bolt is instantly recastable.
