Deathbolt was an uncommon necromantic spell of the southern magic tradition.[1][2][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). [1][2]


In addition to verbal and somatic components, this spell required a material component, vampire ichor. [1][2]
