Evocation cantrip
Casting Time: 1 action
Component: V, M (a weapon)
Range: 5 feet
Duration: Instantaneous

You envelop your weapon with energy that empowers your strike and it slams into an adjacent foe. As part of casting this spell, make a melee weapon attack against one creature within range, otherwise the spell fails. On a hit, the target suffers the attack’s normal effects, and crackling black force leaps from the target to a different creature of your choice that you can see within 5 feet of it. The second creature takes force damage equal to your spellcasting ability modifier.

This spell’s damage increases when you reach higher levels. At 5th level, the melee attack deals an extra 1d8 force damage to the target, and the force damage to the second creature increases to 1d8 + your spellcasting ability modifier. Both damage rolls increase by 1d8 at 11th level and 17th level.
