Your powers come from ancient forces of chaos. They churn within you -- waiting to burst free at any time.

Wild Magic is one of the Subclasses of Sorcerer. These Sorcerers are capable of using the chaos of their magic to unleash various unexpected effects that can be helpful or chaotic. They also have the ability to gain Advantage on rolls, in exchange for their magic becoming more erratic and surging more often.
