Melf's minute meteors was a fire-based evocation spell.[1]

To Zakharan mages, always reluctant to acknowledge ajami names and accomplishments, the spell was known simply as minute meteors, and counted among the spells of the province of flame.[5]


The spell created six tiny meteors that orbited the caster for up to 10 minutes, until released upon a target or until the caster stopped concentrating. When released, the meteors exploded on impact.[1]

The effects of Melf's minute meteors could also be achieved by accident through the misuse of opals as components of magical items that evoked both fire and lightning.[6]


The spell needed somatic and verbal components, as well as niter, sulfur and a bead of pine tar for materials.[1]


Melf's minute meteors was a rare spell in the 1360s DR in both Faerûn[7] and Zakhara.[5][note 1]
