Ice storm, formerly known as Veridon's storm, was an evocation spell that blasted an area with hail.[4][1]

EffectEdit

The spell caused large hailstones to pound down over an area, dealing both impact and cold damage to creatures in their path. The storm also slowed their movement and made it harder to hear.[4]

ComponentsEdit

The spell required some drops of water and a pinch of dust.[4]

HistoryEdit

The spell was created by the arcanist Veridon of Netheril, ruler of the enclave of Lathery. He introduced it in 3415 NY (−444 DR) under the name Veridon's storm. At Lathery, continual Veridon's storms were used to chill the city's cold storage rooms for the freezing of fish.[10][11]

It later became known simply as ice storm.[1]

Ice storm was a common spell in Faerûn in the 1360s DR.[12]

Notable UsesEdit

Ice storm

Kyriani gives Shar the cold shoulder.

During the Time of Troubles in the Year of Shadows, 1358 DR, Kyriani hurled an ice storm at an avatar of the goddess Shar to hold her off, but she deflected the hail with a wall of force.[13]
