Deathbolt was an uncommon necromantic spell of the southern magic tradition.[note 1]
When cast, the spell unleashed a bolt of death energy at the target. This bolt was usually fatal to any creature of the Prime Material plane. The spell had a range of 10 yards (9 meters). 
In addition to verbal and somatic components, this spell required a material component, vampire ichor.
