I used to play a Lythari Elf Mage in 3.5e and now I want to play a Lythari Elf Sorcerer. Lythari Elves are special for their lycanthropic transformation powers:
The lythari are a subrace of elves who can transform into wolves. Unlike most werewolves, they can transform at will and keep their minds while in wolf form.
My 3.5e GM, following Rule #0, allowed me to cast Shout while in my animal form. The logic behind this decision was that the description: "emit an ear-splitting yell" seems to only require a howl/shout/yell and my animal form is capable of making such a noise.
Is there a spell in 5e that I could cast as my wolf's howl to deal damage? Since the decision to cast Shout was a home-brewed ruling, I am open to home-brewed solutions in 5e, too.
What I've Tried Already
- Shatter won't work due to material and somatic components (a wolf can't do this)
- Thunderwave also requires somatic movement to produce the sound (like a clap if I understand it correctly)
