Syntax: Cast 'Chain Lightning' <target>

A notoriously dangerous spell, chain lightning creates a wildly uncontrolled
burst of electricity out into the room where it is cast. Once summoned, it
will rapidly arc between whoever is present there, including even the caster
and his allies, potentially drawing them into combat with him.

Due to the uncontrollable nature of this spell, the caster will not be able
to hold a target at their mercy.
