Journal entry[edit | edit source]

A Zerrikanian invention, Samum found its way North thanks to merchants and was later adopted by the witchers. The bomb stuns and immobilizes all creatures within range, rendering them defenseless against the witcher's blade.
This bomb is ineffective against creatures resistant to Stunning.

"Zerrikanian wizards have learned to harness the energy of hot desert storms and bind it into an arcane mixture. When detonated, the Samum releases this energy and stuns opponents with the ferocity of desert winds."

Upon detonation, this bomb stuns any creatures within range, provided they are not immune to this effect.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Samum (samiel, sameyel, samoon, simoun, simoom, simoon) is a strong, dry, dust-laden local wind that blows in the Sahara, Israel, Jordan, Syria, and the deserts of the Arabian Peninsula. There was also a top secret Polish intelligence operation which was called "Operacja Samum" (Operation Simoom).
