concentration, 5 minutes/mana

As two actions, you take control of the air in a 10-meter cube that you can see within 100 meters. Choose one of the following effects when you cast the spell. The effect lasts for the spell’s duration, unless you use an action on a later turn to switch to a different effect. You can also use an action to temporarily halt the effect, to restart one you’ve halted, or move the cube up to 5 meters within 100 meters.

Gusts. A wind picks up within the cube, continually blowing in a horizontal direction that you choose. You choose the intensity of the wind: calm, moderate, or strong. If the wind is moderate or strong, ranged weapon attacks that pass through it or that are made against targets within the cube have disadvantage on their attack rolls and any burning creature in the area has the burning condition reduced by 1. If the wind is strong, any creature moving against the wind’s speed is halved.

Downdraft. You cause a sustained blast of strong wind (at least 30 kilometers per hour) to blow downward from the top of the cube. Ranged weapon attacks that pass through the cube or that are made against targets within it have disadvantage on their attack rolls and any burning creature in the area has the burning condition reduced by 1. A creature must make a Reflex saving throw if it flies into the cube for the first time on a turn or starts its turn there flying.

On a failed save, the creature is knocked prone.

Updraft. You cause a sustained updraft within the cube, rising upward from the cube’s bottom edge. Creatures that end a fall within the cube take only half damage from the fall. When a creature in the cube makes a vertical jump, the creature can jump up to 2 meters higher than normal.

While the winds are not halted they have the following effects:

  • They deafens creatures in its area.
  • They extinguishes unprotected flames in its area that are torch-sized or smaller.
  • Any burning creature in the area has the burning condition reduced by 1
  • They hedge out vapor, gas, and fog that can be dispersed by strong wind.
  • The area is difficult terrain for creatures other than you.
  • The attack rolls of ranged weapon attacks have disadvantage if the attacks pass in or out of the wind.
