# What is the area affected by Gust of Wind on a grid?

How does the 10 feet wide line affect areas in terms of squares in front of me if I am shooting directly forwards?

The square I am in is 5' wide, so the row of squares directly in front of me will be affected. But how does a 10' wide line work with the squares on either side of that row?

Do I get the rows on both sides of it? Or just the row on one side, so it's lop-sided? If it's lop-sided, how do I know which row it affects?

• I'm a bit confused with what you're asking. Why wouldn't it affect three line blocks? And is the gust 10 ft wide or 15 ft wide? You say it is both in two different sentences. – user27327 May 20 '17 at 9:47
• I think he is asking how a 10ft. wide area is centered on him. If his character occupies a 5ft square, then the 10ft. wide gust will affect the line of squares in front of him and one to the side (so its 10 ft). But to what side? Is it not symmetrical? If it were 15ft, it would be symmetrical and affect 3 blocks. This way, does he get to choose which side the gust is affecting? – BlueMoon93 May 20 '17 at 10:19
• Are diagonals out of the scope of the question? – General Anders May 20 '17 at 21:29
