Witchweed was an uncommon[2] evocation spell of the southern magic tradition.[1][note 1]

Effects[edit | edit source]

The spell created an anti-magic cloud of smoke with a radius of 40 feet (12 meters). Any wizard within the cloud was unable to cast spells. The cloud also inflicted damage. The cloud did not move; only a gust of wind spell was able to move the cloud.[1][2]

Components[edit | edit source]

In addition to verbal and somatic components, this spell required a material component, tobacco, which was burned during casting.[1][2]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. Spells of the southern magic tradition were created in the Old Empires region and written down with the help of Thoth mage-script, a secret magic language, and thus only usable by the initiated.
