Cloak of billowing

cloak of billowing was a magical cloak that could spontaneously billow at its wearer’s command.

It was a magic item from the Forgotten Realms. It’s a cloak that billows like it was blowing in the wind at the wearer’s command. I suspect it was a joke about how heroes in fantasy are usually shown with their cloaks billowing in the wind, even if their hair doesn’t move an inch.


The cloak of billowing had the ability to swell and wave dramatically as if under an ominous wind, requiring very little effort from its wearer. There was no limit to how many times this ability could be activated.
