Shout was an evocation spell that allowed a caster to shout devastatingly.[2]


On casting shout, the caster gave a shout that deafened those within a 30 ft (9 m) cone of the caster. This shout was such that it physically harmed people within its path. It was much more effective at destroying brittle objects or crystalline creatures.[2]


Shout required only verbal components.[2] The version circulating in the Realms before the Year of Wild Magic additionally required a miniature cone of bull or ram horn as well as small amounts of honey and citric acid as material components.[4]


The spell was invented at the edge of Netheril in 3095 NY (−764 DR) by the evil arcanist Xanad, then consequently named Xanad's shout.[1][9]
