This spell creates a 20 ft. diameter, 10 ft. high cylinder of hurricane winds (75-174 mph) centered on the caster, rotating in a clockwise or counterclockwise direction (caster’s choice). The caster is immune to the wind.

The area of wind moves with the caster, but only if he moves no more than 5 ft. per round. If he moves faster than this, the spell immediately ends as soon as he begins his movement.

  • Medium and smaller creatures on the ground are blown away (forced prone and rolled 1d4 × 10 feet in the direction of the wind), taking 1d4 points of nonlethal damage per 10 feet, unless they make a DC 15 Strength check. Note that creatures could likely be blown completely out of the area of effect, depending on the distance they were blown. ? Medium or smaller flying creatures are blown back 2d6 × 10 feet in the direction of the wind and take 2d6 points of nonlethal damage due to battering and buffeting, unless they succeed on a DC 25 Fly skill check.
  • Large or smaller creatures are checked by the wind and are unable to move toward the caster or against the direction of the wind unless they succeed on a DC 10 Strength check (if on the ground) or a DC 20 Fly skill check if airborne.

The hurricane-strength winds extinguish all flames in the area and may fell small trees. Eye of the storm can do anything a blast of hurricane force would be expected to do. It can create a lashing spray of sand, dust, or water, extinguish a large fire, break windows and shutters, rip off awnings, hangings or light wooden roofs, keel over small and even some Medium-sized boats, and blow gases or vapors to the edge of the range.
