Control winds was a transmutation or alteration spell that allowed the caster to control wind.[4]

Effect[edit | edit source]

When cast, the spell allowed the caster to control the winds in a targeted area. The spell allowed the caster to increase or decrease the speed of the prevailing winds, from a zephyr to a hurricane.[4][5][6] Later versions of this spell could control the direction of the wind or even produce tornado-level winds.[2][8] The spell also allowed the caster to create downdrafts and updrafts, create an area of calm air, or create a short burst of powerful wind moving in a single direction.[8] This spell was often used aboard spelljammers, for creating a calm area in the atmosphere when landing on a planetary surface, or to increase the maneuverability of a vessel while in the phlogiston.[9]

Components[edit | edit source]

This spell required only verbal and somatic components.[4][8]

Variants[edit | edit source]

The Red Wizards of Thay created an arcane version of this spell that also required no material components.[7]
