The wind force is strong, with a speed of about 30 mph.

It begins where you stand and blows directly away from you; you can easily propel a sailing vessel by standing astern of the mast and directing the wind forward to fill the sails.

  • Tiny or smaller creatures in the path of the wind are knocked prone, or if flying are blown back 1d6×10 feet.
  • Small creatures are checked and cannot make headway against the wind.
  • Small airborne creatures are instead blown back 1d6×5 feet.
  • Medium and larger creatures can move normally within the effect.

A favorable wind can’t push a creature beyond the limit of its range.

Any creature, regardless of size, takes a -2 penalty on ranged attacks and on Listen checks in the area of a favorable wind.

The wind automatically extinguishes candles, torches, and similar unprotected flames.

In addition to the above-noted effects, favorable wind can do anything that a strong natural wind could do. It can fan a large fire, disperse gases and vapors to the limit of its range in 1 round, and make sailing difficult for small craft nearby.
