Drowsy insects was a common spell used by wu jen.[3] The spell was very rare outside Kara-Tur.[1]


When cast, the spell summoned a cloud of insects. These biting and stinging insects swarmed every creature in the spell's area of effect. A creature with a protection of cold, fire, or smoke was unaffected. While the stings themselves caused little pain, a creature would be affected by the insects' poison, and would fall asleep. This was not a deep sleep or a coma, if the affected creature was disturbed by shaking or noise, they awakened.[1][3]

If a wu jen attempted to cast this spell in the Phlogiston, the spell would fail.[4]


In addition to verbal and somatic components, the spell required a material component, a live stinging insect such as a honeybee or wasp.[1][3]
