Hand was a spell that could only be cast by dragons. It allowed a dragon who was unable to polymorph to perform tasks requiring precise movements or manipulations.[1][2]


When cast, the spell created a human-sized hand that glowed softly. The hand was able to lift up to 60 lb (27 kg) in weight. The hand had to remain within sight of the dragon, if the line of sight was blocked by an object, the spell expired. The hand was unable to throw an object or use a weapon.[1][2]


This spell required only verbal and somatic components.[1][2]
