Kaleidoscope Crossbow

Kaleidoscope Crossbow
Price: 9335 gp
Body Slot: Held
Caster Level: 13th
Aura: Strong Evocation
Activation: Use-Activated
Weight: 4

The crossbow was arranged with various materials of different and clashing colors. Its discordant appearance was reflected on its attacks.

This +1 light crossbow automatically generates its own supply of mundane bolts, but can also be loaded with traditional bolts as well instead. Its true power comes in the riding effect which appears when fired, wrapping the attack in prismatic energy. Roll on the following table to determine what effect applies:

1d8 Color of Bolt Effect
1 Red +1d6 fire damage
2 Orange +1d6 acid damage
3 Yellow +1d6 electric damage
4 Green Poison (1d6 Con; Fortitude negates, no secondary effect)
5 Blue +1d6 cold damage
6 Indigo +1d6 mind-affecting damage
7 Violet +2d6 damage from disruption, subject to time hop for 1d4 rounds (Will negates time hop effect)
8 Struck by two rays; roll twice more, ignoring any “8” results.

These effects stack with any enhancements on the crossbow or bolts itself.

The weapon can be used as a focus for any "prismatic" spells, increasing its caster level by +1. Variants as a heavy crossbow or even short and longbows are known to exist.

Prerequisites: Craft Magic Arms and Armor, prismatic spray.
Cost to Create: 4835 gp, 360 EXP, 9 days.
