Emberbolt (5e Spell)
From D&D Wiki
|Casting time:||1 action|
Focus and swing with fire flying through the gaps in your fingers. Sometimes you just need to punch something with fire. Like a shotgunned version of fire bolt, this blast from the caster's hand dissipates quickly, but burns hotter than a normal fire bolt when cast. The caster makes a melee spell attack against a single target, if it hits it does 1d12 fire damage.
This spell's damage increases by 1d12 when you reach 5th level (2d12), 11th level (3d12), and 17th level (4d12).
While this spell can be learned by many a mage, knowledge of it is required before it can be learned, but this knowledge is not common enough to be known at the start of the game. It must be found written in the world or the casting must have been seen at least once by the would-be student.
