Call Wind (912)
Call Wind causes a fierce wind to rip through the area, knocking down, stunning, forcing into more offensive stances, and/or inducing roundtime (RT) for surrounding characters and creatures. As an area of effect spell, everyone outside of the caster's group in the room is subject to a hidden roll to determine the magnitude of the effects.
This spell is strongly influenced by level and the number of Wizard Base spell ranks known. The change in stance is determined by the magnitude of the failure of a hidden roll. The encumbrance of the target of the spell is also a factor. Elemental Lore, Air gives a chance of forming a windy vortex when casting Call Wind, possibly causing additional RT.
Defending Against Call Wind
The following factors are considered in defense against Call Wind:

- INCANT 912 OPEN to open cast this spell once using INCANT (when a target is not visible)

Magical Items and Scrolls
Call Wind (912) has increased effect with Wizard Base spell ranks.
If cast from a magic item or a scroll, the effective spell rank is determined by the larger of either the user's natively trained Wizard Base spell ranks, or a phantom spell rank calculated based on Magic Item Use or Arcane Symbols, respectively. This calculated rank is identical for all activation verbs.
|Effective Spell Rank (MIU/AS)|
|0.5 per MIU/AS rank up to caster level|
|0.33 per MIU/AS rank up to 2x caster level|
|0.1 per MIU/AS rank above 2x caster level|
