Chaotically Charged[edit]

Prerequisites: The ability to cast spells
Your sheer magical power is chaotic and hard to control. You have 6 charges that are regained whenever you make a long rest. You can expend a charge to do either of the following:

  • When a creature succeeds a saving throw vs a spell you cast this round, you can force it to reroll and take the new result. You must roll on the Magical Mishap table.
  • You can cast a spell as if it were one spell slot higher. You must roll on the Magical Mishap table.

Whenever you cast a spell, roll a d20. If the result of the roll is equal to or lower than the number of charges you've spent, or is a 1, roll on the Magical Mishap table.

Feel free to consult your GM for adding new magical mishaps to the table.

The GM should interpret the result on the table in a way that would lead to the most Fun.
