Prismatic Ray

5th-level evocation

Casting Time: 1 action
Range: 100 feet
Components: V, S
Duration: Instantaneous

A ray of shifting color springs from your hand. Make a ranged spell attack against a single creature you can see within range. The ray’s effect and the saving throw that applies to it depend on which color is dominant when the beam strikes its target, determined by rolling a d8.

d8 Color Effect Saving Throw
1 Red 8d10 fire damage Dexterity
2 Orange 8d10 acid damage Dexterity
3 Yellow 8d10 lightning damage Dexterity
4 Green Target poisoned Constitution
5 Blue Target deafened Constitution
6 Indigo Target frightened Wisdom
7 Violet Target stunned Constitution
8 Shifting ray Target blinded Constitution

A target takes half as much damage on a successful Dexterity saving throw. A successful Constitution or Wisdom saving throw negates the effect of a ray that inflicts a condition on the target; on a failed save, the target is affected for 5 rounds or until the effect is negated.

If the result of your attack roll is a critical hit, you can choose the color of the beam that hits the target, but the attack does not deal additional damage.
