Cone of cold, formerly known as Veridon's cone, was an evocation spell that froze all enemies in front of the caster.[8][9][10][7][4][8]

UsersEdit

Cone of cold could be cast by sorcerers, wizards, and clerics who commanded the cold or ocean domains.[8][11]

EffectEdit

The spell simply projected a cone of intense cold from the caster's hand, draining heat from all caught within.[7][4][8][10]

ComponentsEdit

A casting of cone of cold required a very small cone fashioned of either crystal or glass.[8][7][4][10]

In the Raumviran[12] spellcasting tradition, the verbal component was the word silo'at.[13]

HistoryEdit

The spell was created by the arcanist Veridon of Netheril, ruler of the enclave of Lathery. He introduced it in 3419 NY (−440 DR) under the name Veridon's cone. It later became known simply as cone of cold.[9][14][15]

Cone of cold was a common spell in Faerûn in the 1360s DR.[16]
