As an action, you can produce a small amount of snow or ice in your hand or shape an amount of water, ice, or snow within 10 meters and that fits within a 1-meter cube. You can produce one of the following effects:

  • A ball of snow or a spike of ice forms in your hand. You can throw the snowball or icicle or stab a creature with the icicle. Make a melee or ranged spell attack against the target.

On a hit, it takes 1d10 bludgeoning or piercing (bludgeoning if it is a snowball, piercing if it is an icicle) damage.

On a critical hit, it takes twice as much damage.

On a miss by 4 or less, it takes half as much damage.

  • If you target an area of loose snow, you can instantaneously excavate it, move it along the ground, and deposit it up to 1 meter away. This movement doesn’t involve enough force to cause damage. This can be used to create a small foxhole with half cover.
  • You cause shapes, colors, or both to appear on the ice or snow, spelling out words, creating images, or shaping patterns. The changes last for 1 hour.
  • You freeze water, provided that there are no creatures in it. The water unfreezes in 1 hour.
  • You can melt ice or snow, provided that there are no creatures supported by it.
  • You can create an item by freezing water or forming snow or ice. The item created cannot exceed half a cubic meter in volume. It melts early if it is exposed to extreme heat or a flame. Objects created in this manner may be used as tools, but they are too fragile to be extensively used. They are also too fragile to be used as weapons except for arrows, bolts, bullets, and darts (casting this spell will create up to three of such at once).

If you cast this spell multiple times, you can have no more than two of its non-instantaneous effects active at a time, and you can dismiss such an effect on your turn (no action required).
