Wail of the banshee was a necromancy spell that killed several creatures.[1]

EffectsEdit

The caster emitted a terrible scream that killed creatures who heard it, except for the caster. The more powerful the caster, the more creatures that could be effected by the wail.[6]

HistoryEdit

This spell was not Netherese in origin,[7] nor was it created by Sammaster as many necromancy spells were during his dark days.[8] Its history was otherwise unknown.

RealmsloreEdit

Wail of the banshee was a very rare spell in the Realms.[9][5] Szass Tam likely knew this spell.[10]
