Illusion Spell Descriptions

ALTER REALITY

Level: Illusionist 9
Range: 1 mile radius per level
Duration: See below

DESCRIPTION

Upon casting this spell, a silvery blast of light radiates outward from the illusionist to the limit of the spell. Within the spell’s range, reality reshapes itself according to the caster’s desires. The effect reaches backwards in time up to one day, so battles that were lost might be won, the slain returned to life, and so forth.

All those within the area of the spell’s effect, however, have a persistent sense of displacement and déjà vu, the severity depending on how dramatically their reality changed. A person returned from the dead has a constant feeling of hopelessness and apathy, for instance, while someone else might feel displaced, or that they’ve forgotten something important. Changed creatures and items taken beyond the area of effect maintain their changed state (but see below).

Characters and creatures of half the caster’s level and higher get a saving throw; if successful they remember “reality”, but this does not undo any circumstances currently affecting them.

The altered reality remains in effect until the caster dies, he leaves the area of effect, or dispels the spell. Once that happens reality reasserts itself. The dead become dead again, and their illusory “living” forms disappear. A character that was killed by the altered reality awakens, alive, at the site of their “death”. Other effects are up to the Referee, but in general things should revert without serious physical consequences. After dispelling or exiting an alter reality spell, the caster is mentally exhausted and cannot cast spells for 1d6 days.

ANIMATE SHADOW

Level: Illusionist 5
Range: Touch
Duration: Permanent until destroyed

DESCRIPTION

This spell turns your shadow into a quasi-real creature that follows your spoken commands. The shadow created can follow you, or can remain in one area and attack any creature (or just a specific type of creature) entering the place. The shadow remains animated until it is destroyed. The shadow only has one-fifth the hit points and knowledge (including level, skills, and vocabulary) of the caster At all times the shadow remains under the character’s absolute command. No special telepathic link exists, so command must be exercised in some other manner. The shadow has no ability to become more powerful. It cannot increase its level or abilities. If destroyed, the shadow instantly dissipates and returns to the caster. While the spell is in effect the caster casts no shadow.

APOCALYPSE

Level: Illusionist 8
Range: A 40-ft. radius sphere within 240 ft.
Duration: 1 turn (see text)

DESCRIPTION

All living creatures within this spell’s area of effect believe that they are experiencing the final destruction of the universe. Those subject to the spell experience illusory images that bolster this belief, such as hails of fire and brimstone, the forming of vast fissures in the crust of the earth, the coming of deadly plagues, and perhaps even the appearance of any appropriate deities. Any creature subject to this spell must make a saving throw each round. If the creature fails, it suffers 2d4 points of damage and 1 point of temporary Wisdom damage. If the creature succeeds, it suffers half damage and does not suffer any Wisdom damage. If, during a single round, all creatures that are subject to the spell succeed at their saving throws, the spell ends immediately. Creatures that leave the spell’s area of effect are no longer subject to the spell. The Wisdom damage heals at a rate of 1 point per day. A subject reduced to 0 Wisdom falls into a coma for 3d6 days.

Creatures of 4 HD or more automatically overcome the confusion effect as it builds up to its full power (1d12 rounds, minus the caster’s level), and only then are they permitted a saving throw.

    Range: 120 ft.

    DEADLY MARK

    Level: Illusionist 7
    Range: 60 ft.
    Duration: See text

    DESCRIPTION

    By casting this spell, the illusionist shows an image of a specific object—either real or illusory—to a specific target. Should the target fail a save, he will instantly be killed the next time he sees that specific object or an image of the object. A successful save means that the target instead takes 4d6 points of damage when he next sees that specific object or an image of the object. This object, which is chosen by the caster, must be extremely specific, otherwise the spell will have no effect on its intended target. Showing the target an image of an ordinary crown, for example, would not kill the target if he happened to see any crown in a portrait, but if the target is shown an image of the Crown of the Violet King, the target would die if he saw that crown or a portrait of the king wearing that same exact crown. The spell lasts until the affected target sees the object or an image of the object, or until the caster touches the target and chooses to end the spell.

    DEADLY PATTERN

    Level: Illusionist 9

Unlike the rainbow pattern spell, creatures attacked while under the influence of the deadly pattern are not freed from the spell’s effect. Only by being dragged out of the spell’s area of effect or by being blinded can an affected creature be freed from the spell’s effects. In addition to these spell effects, all enthralled creatures within the spell’s area of effect suffer 1d6 points of damage each round while under the deadly pattern’s influence. Once an affected creature reaches 0 hp or less, that creature dies. This spell lasts until all creatures in its area of influence are dead or have fled the area.

    DEAFNESS

    Level: Illusionist 2
    Range: 60 ft.
    Duration: Permanent

    DISPEL MAGIC

    Level: Illusionist 4
    Range: 30-ft. radius sphere within 60 ft.
    Duration: Instantaneous

    DESCRIPTION

    Dispel magic has a base chance of 50% permanently to negate magic-both the magical properties of potions and the ongoing effects of certain spells. All spell effects and relevant items within the stated area of effect are subject to dispelling. Permanent magical items are not disenchanted by the spell, with the exception of potions, which are treated as 12th level for purposes of resolution. However, even a permanently enchanted item must make a saving throw or become nonoperational for one round. Any spells in the process of being cast in the spell’s area of effect will be lost, and any ongoing spell effects (such as invisibility) will be dispelled. With respect to each potion, casting, or ongoing spell effect, the base chance of successful dispelling is increased 5% for every Level by which the caster’s Level exceeds the caster Level of the potion, the casting, or the spell effect. The base chance is conversely reduced by 2% per Level of difference if the caster is lower Level than the caster of the magic to be dispelled. The spell will automatically negate the caster’s own spells if it is used for this purpose or if the caster has previously cast a spell into the same area.

    DISPLACEMENT

    Level: Illusionist 3
    Range: Touch
    Duration: 1 round per level

    DESCRIPTION

    Level: Illusionist 4
    Range: 120 feet
    Duration: 1 hour per level

    DESCRIPTION

    You can make an area appear to be longer or shorter, wider or narrower that it actually is. This doubles or halves (your choice) the time it takes to travel across the affected area. All affected dimensions must be collectively reduced or expanded. You cannot, for example, reduce the width and height of a corridor and expand its length.

    DISTANT IMAGE

    Level: Illusionist 9
    Range: Unlimited
    Duration: 1 round per level

    DESCRIPTION

    As project image, except as follows. The range of this spell is unlimited, however the caster must have some clear idea of the location and layout of the area in which the shadow duplicate is to appear. Exactly where the shadow duplicate appears varies depending upon the caster’s familiarity with the area. To determine where the shadow duplicate appears, roll d% and consult the Teleport table. If the result is “On Target,” the duplicate appears exactly where the caster intended. If the result is “Off Target,” the shadow duplicate appears a random distance away from the intended area in a random direction. A result of “Similar Area” means that the duplicate appears in the closest visually or thematically similar location. A “Mishap” result means that the spell has failed.

    DOPPLEGANGER

    Level: Illusionist 7
    Range: Touch
    Duration: 1 hour per level

    DESCRIPTION

    By touching a target (living or dead), you assume all aspects of his form, including mannerisms, speech, and body language. Your equipment appears like that worn by the target. You effectively become the target’s double, behaving in every way like the original. You can pass for him in public settings, intimate gatherings, and even in private meetings. However, you gain no additional knowledge, skills, feats, known spells, or languages beyond the scope of what you already know of the person. Others are not allowed a check merely for interacting with you. The creature touched need not be the same race as you, but cannot be more than 2 feet taller or shorter than you. A 6-ft. human wizard, for instance, could assume the form of a bugbear, harpy, minotaur, salamander, worg, or even a human-size demon.

    DREAM

    Level: Illusionist 5
    Range: Unlimited
    Duration: See text

    DESCRIPTION

    You, or a messenger touched by you, sends a phantasmal message to others in the form of a dream. At the beginning of the spell, you must name the recipient or identify him or her by some title that leaves no doubt as to identity. The messenger then enters a trance, appears in the intended recipient’s dream, and delivers the message. The message can be of any length, and the recipient remembers it perfectly upon waking. The communication is one-way. The recipient cannot ask questions or offer information, nor can the messenger gain any information by observing the dreams of the recipient. Heightened (+1): The message composer is not placed into a trance while composing the message, and the message will not be delivered until the first time the recipient sleeps after a trigger of your choosing has taken place. The duration is permanent.

    Level: Illusionist 7
    Range: 120 feet
    Duration: 1 day per level

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell steals the dreams from the subject’s mind each time he sleeps. So long as the subject is affected by this spell, it does not gain the benefits of a good night’s sleep. That is, the subject does not regain hit points or heal ability damage, does not regain lost spells, and functions as if fatigued (effective ability decrease of –2 to Strength and Dexterity). Creatures that do not sleep (such as undead and constructs) cannot be affected by this spell. Elves, however, can be. The effective penalty to ability scores does not stack from day to day.

    DUO-DIMENSION

    Level: Magic-User 7
    Range: Personal
    Duration: 3 rounds + 1 round per level

    DESCRIPTION

    By means of this spell, you reduce yourself to a two-dimensional sheet with no third dimension. You can fit through the thinnest of spaces provided they are large enough to accommodate your remaining two dimensions- you cannot bend down while two-dimensional. Moreover, you can become invisible by the simple expedient of turning sideways. While two-dimensional, you can move, cast spells, and otherwise act normally. If attacked from the front or back, however, you take three times normal damage.

    EERIE

    Level: Illusionist 6
    Range: 240 ft.
    Duration: See text

    DESCRIPTION

    When a creature is first affected by this spell it sees an eerie shape in its peripheral vision. The subject then gets a save to recognize the image as being unreal. If the subject fails the eerie fills its vision with strange and confusing images. At this point the creature must succeed at a second save or collapse helpless on the ground for 1 round per caster level. If the creature succeeds at its second save it is instead mildly confused for 3d6 rounds. Roll a 1d10 to determine the character’s actions for each round:

  • 1-4: Wander away for 1 round
  • 5-6: Do nothing for 1 round
  • 7-8: Attack nearest creature for 1 round
  • 9-10: Act normally for 1 round Roll each round to see what the subject does that round. Wandering creatures leave the scene as if disinterested. Attackers do not gain any bonus to their to hit roll. Behavior is checked at the beginning of each creature’s turn. Any confused creature who is attacked automatically attacks its attackers on its next turn. If the subject of an eerie spell succeeds in disbelieving and is wearing a helm of telepathy, the eerie can be turned upon the caster. The caster must then disbelieve it or suffer its effects.
  • EMOTION

    Level: Illusionist 4
    Range: 20-ft. radius within 60 ft.
    Duration: Concentration

    DESCRIPTION

    By casting this spell, the illusionist is able to instill others with one of four powerful emotions, each with a different effect, as described below:

  • Fear: If the illusionist chooses to instill fear, the spell’s effect is similar to that of the fear spell, but with a -2 penalty applied to saving throws.
  • Hate: If the illusionist instills hate, the targets gain a +2 bonus to saving throws, attacks, and damage.
  • Hopelessness: The illusionist causes despair in the target creatures, who will wander sadly away or surrender in the face of a challenge such as a combat.
  • Rage: Creatures affected by rage gain a bonus +1 to attacks, a damage bonus of +3, and 5 + the illusionist’s level in temporary hit points. Temporary hit points are lost first if the creature incurs damage. The affected creature will not willingly retreat from any combat or any opponent.

    ENTHRALL

    Level: Illusionist 3
    Range: 120 feet
    Duration: 1 hour or less

    DESCRIPTION

    If you have the attention of a group of creatures, you can use this spell to hold them spellbound. To cast the spell, you must speak or sing without interruption for 1 round. Thereafter, those affected give you their undivided attention, ignoring their surroundings. They are considered to be friendly while under the effect of the spell. Any potentially affected creature of a race or religion unfriendly to yours gets a +2 bonus on the saving throw. A creature with 4 or more HD or with a wisdom attribute of 15 or higher remains aware of its surroundings and remains indifferent. It gains a new saving throw if it witnesses actions that it opposes. The effect lasts as long as you speak or sing, to a maximum of 1 hour. Those enthralled by your words take no action while you speak or sing and for 1d3 rounds thereafter while they discuss the topic or performance. Those entering the area during the performance must also successfully save or become enthralled. The speech ends (but the 1d3-round delay still applies) if you lose concentration or do anything other than speak or sing. If those not enthralled have unfriendly or hostile attitudes toward you, they can collectively make a saving throw to try to end the spell by jeering and heckling. The heckling ends the spell. If any member of the audience is attacked or subjected to some other overtly hostile act, the spell ends and the previously enthralled members become immediately unfriendly toward you. Each creature with 4 or more HD or with a wisdom attribute of 15 or higher becomes hostile.

    Level: Illusionist 1
    Range: 60 ft.
    Duration: 1 hour

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell illumines an object or creature with an eerie, fey glow. The spell’s target may be approximately as large as 10 square feet, plus 2 square feet per level of the caster. The spell can be used for diverse purposes, such as revealing the true dimensions or extent of a thing, or to prevent a creature from retreating into the darkness. Depending upon the precise circumstances, the Referee may allow such illumination to render a creature more easily hit, granting a +1 to-hit bonus to attackers.

    FALSE SCRIPT

    Level: Illusionist 1
    Range: Touch
    Duration: 1 day per level

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell causes the creatures in its cone-shaped path to flee in horror (if they fail the saving throw). There is a 60% chance that they will drop whatever they are holding. The cone extends 240 feet to a base 120 feet across.

    FOG CLOUD

    Level: Illusionist 2
    Range: 30 ft.
    Duration: 4 rounds + 1 round per level

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell creates a roiling mass of gas and vapor 15 feet in radius, similar in appearance to a cloudkill spell. The fog cloud moves away from the caster at 10 feet per round. Vision into the fog is limited to 2 feet.

    FRIGHTFUL PRESENCE

    Level: Illusionist 3
    Range: 30 ft.
    Duration: Instantaneous

    DESCRIPTION

    With this spell the caster can create a fearsome manifestation that mimics the frightful presence special attack. This spell makes the caster’s very presence unsettling to foes. Opponents within 30 feet of the caster who can see the spellcaster must make a successful saving throw or become frightened for 3d6 rounds. This ability affects only opponents with fewer Hit Dice or levels than the caster has.

    GARBLED TEXT

    Level: Illusionist 3
    Range: Touch
    Duration: Permanent

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell causes writings, inscriptions, and even magical symbols and glyphs to become temporarily unintelligible. The writing looks normal to the casual viewer, but seems meaningless whenever anyone tries to actively read it. Characters skilled in ciphers, codes, and secret messages can attempt to understand the text by making a save. Placing this spell on magical writing such as a scroll or spellbook increases the difficulty of learning or casting the spell (treat the spell as being one level higher than normal). Placing this spell on a scribed magical ward does not disrupt the ward’s function but might prevent it from being recognized. For example, explosive runes with a garbled text spell applied still detonate when an attempt to read them is made, but the attempt won’t reveal the runes’ meaning (if any). Likewise, an suggestive script with a garbled text spell applied still implants its suggestion in the minds of unauthorized readers.

    GAZE REFLECTION

    Level: Illusionist 1
    Range: Personal
    Duration: 1 round per level

    DESCRIPTION

    The air immediately in front of the caster takes on a mirror’s ability to reflect gaze attacks back upon the attacker. The area does not create a reflective surface to normal sight, and it can be seen through by the caster and by other observers, except those using gaze attacks.

    GREATER DOPPLEGANGER

    Level: Illusionist 9
    Range: Touch
    Duration: 1 hour per level

    DESCRIPTION

    As doppleganger, except you temporarily absorb the target’s memories as well as a rudimentary understanding of his language. This added benefit is lost if the target has been dead more than 1 round/caster level. You still do not gain skill knowledge, access to known spells, or use of feats. In addition, the impersonation is so perfect that not even true seeing can detect it.

    GREATER MADNESS

    Level: Illusionist 6
    Range: Touch
    Duration: Instantaneous (see text)

    DESCRIPTION

    As madness, except as follows. The spell immediately inflicts 1d3+3 points of temporary Wisdom damage, which returns at a rate of 1 point per day. In addition, the target experiences a form of temporary insanity for a number of days equal to 1d3 +1/2 caster levels (maximum 8 days). The form of insanity is determined randomly. Roll 1d20 and then consult the results below.

    1d10 Insanity Effect 1-2 Insomnia: Target is unable to sleep. After 4d6 hours, he becomes fatigued.

    3-4 Compulsive Lying: Target is unable to tell the truth.

    5-7 Phobia (Creature): See description under madness spell.

    8-10 Phobia (Substance): See description under madness spell.

    11-13 Phobia (Environment): See description under madness spell.

    14-16 Paranoia Target is irrationally suspect of a particular society, such as a certain race, culture, or organization. When in proximity of an individual or individuals that appear to be members of the suspect society, the target believes that he is in immediate danger. The target must immediately either engage the individual or individuals in com- bat as if his life were in imminent danger or become panicked. The DM determines the nature of the suspect society. Typical selections include a single race, such as elves, citizens of a particular nation, or members of a certain guild.

    17-18 Self-Mutilation Target compulsively injures himself. Each hour, the target suffers 1d6 points of damage unless he is physically restrained from doing so. Hallucinations Hallucinations: Target suffers hallucinations and thereafter believes that any creature he encounters is an illusion. If the target interacts with a new creature or sees the creature interact with another creature he believes is “real,” he may make a save to determine that the new creature is real. Multiple Disorders Target suffers from more than one form of temporary insanity. Roll again on this table twice. If these results are the same, simply add an additional creature, substance, environment, or society where appropriate. Otherwise, roll again. Ignore further rolls of 20.

    GREATER NIGHTMARE

    Level: Illusionist 7
    Range: Unlimited
    Duration: Instantaneous

    DESCRIPTION

    As nightmare, except as follows: The phantasmal vision created by this spell is so terrifying that the target must succeed at a save or die. If the target succeeds, he is nevertheless denied a restful sleep and suffers 2d8 points of damage. The attempt on his life leaves the target tired out and unable to regain arcane spells for the next 24 hours. If dispel evil is used to break this spell, the spell rebounds on the caster who suffers 1 point of Wisdom damage.

    GREATER PHANTASMAL FOE

    Level: Illusionist 5
    Range: 240 ft.
    Duration: Concentration + 2d4 rounds

    DESCRIPTION

    As phantasmal foe, but with the following properties: The greater phantasmal foe spell affects 1 target per 5 caster levels, attacks as a fighter of your level, and deals 4d6 points of illusory damage on each successful attack. If disbelieved or if the creature leaves your line of sight the phantasmal force immediately dissipates. Heightened (+1): The spell inflicts 4d4 points of normal damage per round.

    GREATER RAINBOW PATTERN

    Level: Illusionist 6
    Range: A 20-ft. radius pattern within 240 ft.
    Duration: Concentration + 2 rounds per level

    DESCRIPTION

    As rainbow pattern, but greater rainbow pattern fascinates a maximum of 42 Hit Dice of creatures. Creatures with the fewest HD are affected first. Among creatures with equal HD, those who are closest to the spell’s point of origin are affected first.

    An affected creature that fails its saves is fascinated by the pattern. With a simple gesture (a free action), you can make the greater rainbow pattern move up to 30 feet per round (moving its effective point of origin). All fascinated creatures follow the moving fountain of light, trying to get or remain within the effect. Fascinated creatures who are restrained and removed from the pattern still try to follow it. If the pattern leads its subjects into a dangerous area each fascinated creature gets a second save. If the view of the lights is completely blocked creatures that can’t see them are no longer affected. The spell does not affect sightless creatures.

    GREATER SHADOW CONJURATION

    Level: Illusionist 7

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell functions like shadow conjuration, except that it can duplicate any magic-user conjuration or summoning spell of 6th level or lower. The illusory conjurations created deal three-fifths (60%) damage to nonbelievers, and non?damaging effects are 60% likely to work against nonbelievers.

    GUARDS AND WARDS

    Level: Illusionist 6
    Range: 1000-ft. radius
    Duration: 2 hours per level

    DESCRIPTION

    This powerful spell is primarily used to defend the caster’s stronghold. The spell creates the following magical effects within the warded area:

  • Fog: Fog fills all corridors, obscuring all sight, including infravision, beyond 10 ft.
  • Wizard Locks: All doors in the warded area are wizard locked.
  • Webs: Webs fill all stairs from top to bottom. These strands are identical to those created by the web spell, except that they regrow in 1 turn if they are burned or torn away while the guards and wards spell lasts.
  • Confusion: Where there are choices in direction-such as a corridor intersection or side passage-a minor confusion-type effect functions so as to make it 50% probable that intruders believe they are going in the opposite direction from the one they actually chose. This is an enchantment/charm effect that will not affect elves or other creatures immune to charm.
  • Lost Doors: One door per caster level is covered by an illusion to appear as if it were a plain wall. In addition, the magic user can place his or her choice of one of the following five magical effects:
  • Dancing lights in four corridors.
  • A magic mouth in two places.
  • A stinking cloud in two places. The vapors return within 10 turns if dispersed by wind while the guards and wards spell lasts.
  • A suggestion in one place. The caster selects an area of up to 5 ft. square, and any creature who enters or passes through the area receives the suggestion mentally. The whole warded area radiates strong magic. A dispel magic cast on a specific effect, if successful, removes only that effect.

    HALLUCINATORY REALITY

    Level: Illusionist 8
    Range: 1 mile radius per level
    Duration: Concentration + 2 hours per level

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell allows you to change the appearance of one aspect of the surrounding landscape to your whim. Objects or creatures are altered from one type to another—dogs become cats, humans becomes dwarves, houses become wagons, orcs become pies, and so on. The change affects sight, sound, smell, and touch.

    HALLUCINATORY TERRAIN

    Level: Illusionist 3
    Range: 240 ft.
    Duration: 1 hour

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell changes the appearance of the natural terrain into the semblance of what the caster desires. A hill can be made to disappear, or could be replaced with an illusory forest, for example. Manufactured and constructed objects cannot be altered. Creatures who move into the area of the hallucinatory terrain get a saving throw to discern reality. Heightened (+1): Only druids, rangers, fey, and other intelligent forest-natives get a saving throw against the spell.

    HYPNOTIC PATTERN

    Level: Illusionist 2
    Range: A 10-ft. radius pattern within 120 feet
    Duration: Concentration + 2 rounds

    DESCRIPTION

    You create a pattern of subtle, shifting colors that weaves through the air, fascinating creatures within it. This spell works like hypnotism, except it lasts for as long as you concentrate, plus 2 rounds after.

    HYPNOTISM

    Level: Illusionist 1
    Range: 60 ft.
    Duration: 2d4 rounds

    DESCRIPTION

    Your gestures and droning incantation fascinate nearby creatures, causing them to stop and stare blankly at you. In addition, you can use their rapt attention to make your suggestions and requests seem more plausible. Roll 2d4 to see how many total Hit Dice of creatures you affect. Creatures with fewer HD are affected before creatures with more HD. Only creatures that can see or hear you are affected, but they do not need to understand you to be fascinated.

    ID ASSASSIN

    Level: Illusionist 8
    Range: 60 ft.
    Duration: 1 round per level

    DESCRIPTION

    You tap into the target creature’s subconscious mind, releasing its darkest, most primitive, and most violent self. On a failed save, the creature finds itself engulfed in a waking nightmare of violence and self-loathing, experiencing the effects of confusion (as the spell). The strain on mind and body reduces the target creature’s effective Constitution attribute by 2d6 points, slaying it if its Constitution drops to 0 or less. While the effect lasts, the victim also takes 1d4 points of damage each round as the result of its inner turmoil. When the spell ends the subject’s effective Constitution attribute returns to normal, but any damage taken from the spell remains.

    ILLUSORY WALL

    Level: Illusionist 4
    Range: 60 feet
    Duration: Permanent

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell creates the illusion of a wall, floor, ceiling, or similar surface, up to 10 feet square per level. It appears absolutely real when viewed, but physical objects can pass through it without difficulty.

    IMPROVED INVISIBILITY

    Level: Illusionist 4
    Duration: 1 round per level

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell functions like invisibility, except that it doesn’t end if the subject attacks.

    IMPROVED PHANTASMAL FOE

    Level: Illusionist 3
    Range: 120 ft.
    Duration: Concentration + 1d4 rounds

    DESCRIPTION

    As phantasmal foe, but with the following properties: The improved phantasmal foe has the base attack bonus of a cleric of your level and deals 2d6 points of illusory damage on each successful attack. If disbelieved or if the creature leaves the caster’s line of sight the improved phantasmal foe immediately dissipates. Heightened (+1): Prepared as a 4th-level spell, improved phantasmal foe inflicts 2d4 points of normal damage.

    IMPROVED PHANTASMAL FORCE

    Level: Illusionist 4
    Range: 240 ft.
    Duration: 1 round per level

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell functions like phantasmal force, except for the duration. The figment follows a script determined by you and without your having to concentrate on it.

    INDEPENDENT ILLUSION

    Level: Illusionist 8
    Range: 240 ft.
    Duration: Permanent

    DESCRIPTION

    As programmed image, except that the illusion possesses a tiny spark of the caster’s Intelligence that lets it react to changing situations as the caster desires, as though he consciously directed its actions. Casting this spell inflicts 1 point of temporary Intelligence damage on the caster.

    INSTANT EXIT

    Level: Illusionist 4
    Range: 60 ft.
    Duration: 1 round

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell causes a door to suddenly appear on a wall or other flat surface within range. Creatures that step through the door are instantly teleported to a random location within 1,000 feet of the door. You have no control over where you or any other creatures are transported but all creatures stepping through the door are transported to the same location. There is a 5% chance this spell malfunctions and dumps all affected creatures into an extra-dimensional plane adjacent to reality.

    INVISIBILITY

    Level: Illusionist 2
    Range: 240 ft.
    Duration: Permanent until dispelled or an attack is made

    DESCRIPTION

    The object of this spell, whether a person or a thing, becomes invisible (to both normal vision and to darkvision). An invisible creature cannot be attacked unless its approximate location is known, and all attacks are made at -4 to hit. If the invisible creature makes an attack, the spell is broken. Otherwise, it lasts until dispelled or removed by the caster.

    INVISIBILITY 10-FOOT RADIUS

    Level: Illusionist 3
    Range: 240 ft.
    Duration: Until dispelled or an attack is made

    DESCRIPTION

    Like the invisibility spell, invisibility 10-ft. radius makes the target creature or object invisible to normal sight and to darkvision. It also, however, throws a radius of invisibility around the recipient, which moves with him/it. The invisible creature cannot be attacked unless its approximate location is known, and all attacks against him/it are made at -4 to hit. If the invisible creature makes an attack, the spell is broken for that creature. Otherwise, it lasts until dispelled or removed by the caster.

    LIGHT

    Level: Illusionist 1
    Range: 60 ft.
    Duration: 1 hour +1 turn per level

    DESCRIPTION

    The target person or object (at a range of up to 60 feet) produces light about as bright as a torch, to a radius of 20 feet.

    LONELY ROAD

    Level: Illusionist 4
    Range: 60 ft.
    Duration: 2 hours per level

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell creates a ghostly, shimmering, portal to an extra-dimensional road that can be used to travel long distances, up to 5 miles per level. This road stretches out in a single path approximately fifty feet wide, leading in a direction of your choosing when the spell is cast. The cobblestones are solid and perfect for traveling, but the rest of the plane is a featureless void the color of twilight. The lonely road never twists or deviates, the exit opening onto a point in the real world exactly equal to the distance traveled in the chosen direction. The nature of the road allows it to bypass natural environments or objects that would ordinarily obstruct or slow a traveler, cutting through lakes or mountains as though they were not there. Only those you designate may enter the lonely road, and the portal closes behind you after you enter. Once the entry portal is closed, you can create an exit point anywhere along the lonely road at will. Creatures on the lonely road must travel to the exit point normally, using any movement available to them. The exit point shows a distorted image of the real world on the other side, alerting you if your chosen exit point would deposit you in a space occupied by a solid body. Sages disagree on whether the lonely road creates an all-new extra-dimensional space, or creates a path through an existing one. If the latter, there is a small chance of an encounter along the road, either with a native of the space, or with travelers stranded from a failed casting of lonely road.

    LOST

    Level: Illusionist 3
    Range: 120 ft.
    Duration: 1 round per level

    DESCRIPTION

    The affected creatures (one per two caster levels) believe themselves to be completely lost, and wander randomly as long as the spell is in effect. Each affected creature moves at half speed in a random direction each round (roll 1d8 to determine the exact direction), and do not remember previous changes in direction. They recognize enemies but make no hostile moves toward them while under the effects of the spell. They defend themselves from attacks, but will then move away in a random direction on the next round once combat is over (using a withdrawal action if necessary), until the spell ends. Shaking or otherwise attempting to disturb an affected creature has little effect, and they will continue to try puzzling their way out of their predicament. Creatures affected by lost can attempt a new save each round to try to resist the spell’s effects. On a successful save, treat the creature as dazzled for 1 round as it suddenly becomes aware of its surroundings once more.

    LURCHING PATTERN

    Level: Illusionist 2
    Range: 30-foot wide pattern within 120 ft.
    Duration: Concentration + 1 round per level

    DESCRIPTION

    This silvery-blue pattern unbalances all creatures in its area of effect. Those who leave the area of effect are unbalanced for one round afterwards and then return to normal. Roll 1d6 per 5’ of movement attempted to determine the effects of being unbalanced.

    Movement while unbalanced 1d6 Effect 1

    Move 5 feet forward

    2

    Move 5 feet backward

    3

    Move 5 feet left

    4

    Move 5 feet right

    5

    Fall down

    MADNESS

    Level: Illusionist 4
    Range: Touch
    Duration: Instantaneous (see text)

    DESCRIPTION

    The target experiences a traumatic flash of terrifying mental images that inflicts Wisdom damage and temporarily drives it insane. Upon contact, the caster’s touch deals 1d3 points of Wisdom damage. In addition, the target experiences a form of temporary insanity for a number of hours equal to 3d6 +1/2 caster levels (maximum 28 hours). The form of insanity is determined randomly. Roll 1d10 and then consult the table below. The temporary insanity may be removed through magical means, such as a remove curse spell. The Wisdom damage remains until removed through rest or by other magical means, such as remove curse.

    1d10 Insanity Effect 1-2 Insomnia: Target is unable to sleep. After 4d6 hours, he becomes fatigued.

    3-4 Compulsive Lying: Target is unable to tell the truth.

    5-7 Phobia (Creature): Target is irrationally afraid of certain creatures. The target suffers a –4 penalty to attack rolls, ability checks, skill checks, and saves in regard to these creatures. In addition, these creatures gain a +2 morale bonus to saves caused by the target. The DM determines the creature type. Typical selections include arachnids, insects, or snakes.

    8-9 Phobia (Substance): Target is irrationally afraid of a certain sub- stance. The target suffers a –4 penalty to attack rolls, ability checks, skill checks, and saves while in contact with the substance or when dealing with other creatures that are in contact with the substance. In addition, creatures that are in contact with the sub- stance gain a +2 morale to saves caused by the target. The DM determines the substance type. Typical selections include water, particular foods, or mud. Phobia (Environment): Target is irrationally afraid of a certain type of environment. The target suffers a –4 penalty to attack rolls, ability checks, skill checks, and saves when within this environment. In addition, other creatures that are in the environment gain a +2 morale bonus to saves caused by the target. Typical selections include confined spaces, forests, or urban locales.

    MAELSTROM OF COLOR

    Level: Illusionist 8
    Range: A cone 60 feet long and 30 feet wide
    Duration: Instantaneous (see text)

    DESCRIPTION

    As the spell torrent of color, except the maelstrom is even more powerful. The cone of colored light created by the maelstrom affects the closest 4d6 creatures within the spell’s area of effect. The maelstrom also has the following effects upon its targets, depending on the HD of the targets:

  • Up to 6: Unconscious for 4d6 rounds, blinded for 2d6+2 rounds, and then stunned for 3 rounds. (Only living creatures are knocked unconscious.) In addition to this, affected creatures take 2d6 points of damage, and lose 2d4 temporary points of Constitution for 2d6 hours.
  • 7 to 8: Unconscious for 3d6 rounds, blinded for 1d6+1 rounds, and then stunned for 2 rounds. In addition to this, affected creatures lose 1d4 temporary points of Constitution for 1d6 hours.
  • 9 or more: Unconscious for 2d4 rounds, blinded for 1d4 rounds, and then stunned for 1 round. Blinded creatures have the same penalties as those affected by color spray.

    MAGIC MOUTH

    Level: Illusionist 2
    Range: Touch
    Duration: Permanent until triggered or dispelled

    DESCRIPTION

    This enchantment is set upon an object, and the magic is triggered when certain conditions established by the caster are met. When that happens, a mouth appears in the object and speaks the message it has been commanded to speak. The message may be up to thirty words long.

    MASS SUGGESTION

    Level: Illusionist 5
    Range: 120 ft.
    Duration: 1 week

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell functions like suggestion, except that it affects one creature per level. The same suggestion applies to all these creatures.

    MASSMORPH

    Level: Illusionist 4
    Range: 240 ft.
    Duration: Until negated by the caster or dispelled

    DESCRIPTION

    One hundred or fewer man or horse-sized creatures are changed to appear like innocent trees, rocks, or other appropriately-sized natural features. The illusion is so perfect that creatures moving through the area will not detect the deception. Targets that move faster than a walk, attack, or cast spells dispel the illusion on themselves but not others.

    MAZE

    Level: Illusionist 7
    Range: 60 ft.
    Duration: Depends on intelligence

    DESCRIPTION

    The targeted creature disappears into a gap in reality, where strange curving and branching passages conceal the way out. Creatures with intelligence lower than 6 require 2d4 x3 rounds to escape the interdimensional prison. Creatures with Intelligence attributes 7–11 require 2d4 rounds, and creatures with an intelligence of 12+ require only 1d4 rounds to puzzle the way back into normal reality. Although monsters aren’t described with specific Intelligence attributes, it shouldn’t be hard to determine into which category any specific monster falls. Unless ruled otherwise by the Referee, there is no saving throw to avoid the spell.

    MENIOTH’S BRILLIANT RAY

    Level: Illusionist 2
    Range: 120 feet
    Duration: Instantaneous

    DESCRIPTION

    A glittering ray of golden light springs forth from your fingertips. You must succeed on a missile attack to strike the target, but ignore the target’s armor and shield. The target takes 2d4 points of damage and must succeed on a save to avoid being blinded for 1d6 rounds.

    MENIOTH’S INSTANT LIGHT

    Level: Illusionist 4
    Range: Touch
    Duration: Until triggered, then 5 rounds

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell causes an object to glow with a powerful magic light once it is carried into an area of magical darkness. The light is effectively stored within the object, taking effect immediately in the same round when you enter the area of the magical darkness. Once it has been triggered, Menioth’s instant light dispels a darkness spell of equal or lower level, then causes the object to glow like a torch (shedding bright light in a 20-ft. radius) for 5 rounds.

    MIND BLANK

    Level: Illusionist 8
    Range: 60 feet.
    Duration: 24 hours
    Area of Effect: One creature

    DESCRIPTION

    By means of this spell, the person upon whom it is cast becomes completely protected from all divination and scrying magic. His or her thoughts cannot be detected in any way, he or she cannot be magically overheard when speaking, his or her soul cannot be trapped or affected, etc.

    MIRAGE ARCANA

    Level: Illusionist 5
    Range: 240 ft.
    Duration: 12 hours

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell functions like hallucinatory terrain, except that it enables you to make any area appear to be something other than it is. The illusion includes audible, visual, tactile, and olfactory elements. Unlike hallucinatory terrain, the spell can alter the appearance of structures (or add them where none are present). It can’t disguise, conceal, or add creatures (though creatures within the area might hide themselves within the illusion just as they can hide themselves within a real location).

    MIRROR IMAGE

    Level: Illusionist 2
    Range: Personal
    Duration: 1 hour or until destroyed

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell creates 1d4 images of the caster, acting in perfect synchronization with him like mirror images. Attackers cannot distinguish the images from the caster, and may attack one of the images instead of the caster himself (determined randomly). When a hit is scored upon one of the images, it disappears.

    MISDIRECTION

    Level: Illusionist 2
    Range: 60 feet
    Duration: 1 hour per level

    DESCRIPTION

    You misdirect the information from divination spells that reveal auras (detect evil, detect magic, discern lies, and the like). On casting the spell, you choose another object within range. For the duration of the spell, the subject of misdirection is detected as if it were the other object, with no saving throws allowed.

    MISLEAD

    Level: Illusionist 6
    Range: 60 feet
    Duration: See text

    DESCRIPTION

    You become invisible (as greater invisibility) and at the same time an illusory double of you (as phantasmal force) appears. You are then free to go elsewhere while your double moves away. The double moves as you direct it (which requires concentration beginning on the first round after the casting). You can make the double appear superimposed perfectly over your own body so that observers don’t notice an image appearing and you turning invisible. You and the figment can then move in different directions. The double moves at your speed and can talk and gesture as if it were real, but it cannot attack or cast spells, though it can pretend to do so. The illusory double lasts as long as you concentrate upon it, plus 3 additional rounds. After you cease concentration, the illusory double continues to carry out the same activity until the duration expires. The invisibility lasts for 1 round per level, regardless of concentration.

    MISLEADING IMAGES

    Level: Illusionist 8
    Range: 240 ft.
    Duration: 1 round per level

    DESCRIPTION

    As mislead except multiple illusory duplicates of the caster appear. When the caster becomes invisible, 2d6 duplicates appear. The duplicates appear within range, but thereafter move according to the caster’s intent at the time of casting. The duplicates mimic each other’s actions and may move through one another. They cannot cast spells, but can pretend to do so. Any successful attack against a duplicate destroys it. Duplicates seem to react normally to area spells (such as looking like they’re burned or dead after being struck by a fireball).

    NIGHTMARE

    Level: Illusionist 5
    Range: Unlimited
    Duration: Instantaneous

    DESCRIPTION

    You send a hideous and unsettling phantasmal vision to a specific creature that you name or otherwise specifically designate. The nightmare prevents restful sleep and causes 1d10 points of damage. The nightmare leaves the subject unable to regain magic-user spells for the next 24 hours. Dispel evil cast on the subject while you are casting the spell dispels the nightmare and causes you to be stunned for 1 turn per caster level of the dispel evil.

    NON-DETECTION

    Level: Illusionist 3
    Range: Caster
    Duration: 1 turn per level

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell shields the caster from the prying eyes of scrying magics, making him or her invisible to divination spells and other means of magical spying such as crystal balls and ESP.

    OBSSESSION

    Level: Illusionist 5
    Range: 60 ft.
    Duration: See text

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell allows a mesmerist to show an illusory image of a specific, real object—either real or illusory—to the target. Should that target fail a save, the target is compelled to hunt down and find that object as per a geas spell. Only by physically finding the actual object can the target end the effects of this spell. The object shown in the illusion must be real, and must physically exist at the time the spell is cast. Should the object be destroyed after the obsession spell is cast but before the target of the spell has found the object, the target is doomed to search for the object forever in vain, unless the caster chooses to end the spell with a simple touch.

    PARALYSATION

    Level: Illusionist 3
    Range: A 20-foot cube within 60 ft.
    Duration: Permanent

    DESCRIPTION

    A certain number of creatures within the spell’s area of effect are frozen in place, magically convinced that they cannot move. The caster can affect creatures with a total number of hit dice equal to twice his caster level. Each creature is entitled to a saving throw against the spell. The illusionist can end the paralysis at any time; otherwise a dispel magic (or dispel illusion) spell is the only way to remove the paralysis.

    PERFECT ILLUSION

    Level: Illusionist 9
    Range: 240 ft.
    Duration: Permanent

    DESCRIPTION

    As programmed image, except that the illusion is crafted so perfectly that it cannot be disbelieved and lasts forever unless ended with a touch by the caster. However, the illusion can still be dispelled as usual, and lacks solidity, so it can be passed through.

    PERMANENCY

    Level: Illusionist 8
    Range: See below
    Duration: Permanent until dispelled by an opponent of twice the caster’s level

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell makes the effect of another spell permanent— unless a spellcaster of twice the caster’s level dispels it. No more than one permanency is ordinarily possible on any one object, and no more than two upon a creature. Considerable Referee discretion is required for the use of this spell: many spells should not be subject to being made permanent.

    PERMANENT IMAGE

    Level: Illusionist 5
    Range: 240 ft.
    Duration: Permanent

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell functions like phantasmal force except that the illusion is permanent.

    PHANTASMAGORIA

    Level: Illusionist 6
    Range: A 60-ft. radius around you.
    Duration: 1 turn

    DESCRIPTION

    You summon a host of terrifying spectral images, which pursue anyone you choose within range for the duration of the spell. Targets must make a successful saving throw or take 3d6 points of damage and be affected as per a fear spell, fleeing in terror and with a 60% chance to drop anything they are holding. A creature that successfully saves is ignored by the images.

    PHANTASMAL FOE

    Level: Illusionist 1
    Range: 120 ft.
    Duration: Concentration + 1 round

    DESCRIPTION

    With this spell you can create a phantasmal image that torments your foe. The phantasmal foe fights as an illusionist of your level and deals ld6 points of illusory damage on each successful attack. If disbelieved or if the creature leaves the caster’s line of sight the phantasmal foe immediately dissipates. The illusory damage disappears after 1 round. Heightened (+1): Phantasmal foe can be cast as a 2nd-level spell, in which case it inflicts 1d4 points of normal damage.

    PHANTASMAL FORCE

    Level: Illusionist 2
    Range: 240 ft.
    Duration: Concentration

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell creates a realistic illusion in the sight of all who view it. The illusion disappears when it is touched, but if the viewer believes the illusion is real, he can take damage from it. Unless the Referee rules otherwise, victims of the spell are permitted a saving throw, and the illusion cannot cause more than 2d6 points of damage per victim. This damage is illusory, and disappears 1 round after the spell expires.

    PHANTASMAL HUNTER

    Level: Illusionist 6
    Range: 60 ft.
    Duration: Instantaneous

    DESCRIPTION

    You create a phantasmal hunter, an illusory creature that is similar to that created by the spell, phantasmal killer. Upon seeing the phantasmal hunter, the target must make a saving throw or become panicked. In any event, the phantasmal hunter relentlessly pursues the target until it comes into contact with the target through a successful touch attack. At that time, the target must succeed at a second saving throw or die. The target receives a –1 penalty to the save roll for every round it has spent fleeing from the phantasmal hunter (maximum –10). The phantasmal creature has a speed of 15 (40 feet) and an attack bonus equal to a fighter of your level.

    PHANTASMAL KILLER

    Level: Illusionist 4
    Range: 120 feet
    Duration: Instantaneous

    DESCRIPTION

    You create a phantasmal image of the most fearsome creature imaginable to the subject. Only the spell’s subject can see the phantasmal killer. You see only a vague shape. The target first gets a saving throw to recognize the image as unreal. If that fails, the phantasm touches the subject and the subject must succeed on a saving throw or die from fear. Even if the saving throw is successful, the subject takes 3d6 points of damage. If the subject of a phantasmal killer succeeds in disbelieving and is wearing a helm of telepathy or is a psychic with the telepathy power, the beast can be turned upon you. You must then disbelieve it or become subject to its deadly fear attack.

    PHANTOM PALANQUIN

    Level: Illusionist 5
    Range: Personal
    Duration: 1 hour per level

    DESCRIPTION

    You conjure a quasi-real palanquin carried by ghostly humanoid shapes. The litter of the palanquin is large enough for you plus 1 additional medium-sized creature for every four caster levels you possess. The palanquin is made of grey silk and black wood, with large red nails holding it together. The bearers appear to be little more than misty shapes in human form, intangible and unnerving to behold. The phantom palanquin has a movement of 3 (10 feet per caster level), to a maximum of 24 (80) per round. Creatures inside the palanquin gain a +4 bonus to their armor class. Phantom palanquin can be cast as a higher level spell, and gains certain powers when so cast. A palanquin’s abilities include those of lower spell levels. Thus, a phantom palanquin cast as a 8th-level spell has the 6th, 7th, and 8th -level abilities. Heightened (+1): The bearers can carry the palanquin over sandy, muddy, or even swampy ground without difficulty or decrease in speed. Heightened (+2): The palanquin can blink at will (as the spell, no action required to activate this ability). Heightened (+3): The palanquin can turn itself and its passengers immaterial for up to 1 turn. Heightened (+4): The phantom palanquin has the ability to turn itself and all creatures inside the palanquin invisible and immaterial at will, able to pass through solid matter with ease. Those that step out of the palanquin become solid immediately.

    PRESTIDIGITATION

    Level: Illusionist 1
    Range: 10 ft.
    Duration: 1 hour Prestidigitations are minor tricks that novice spellcasters use for practice. Once cast, prestidigitation enables you to perform simple magical effects for 1 hour. The effects are minor and have severe limitations. A prestidigitation can slowly lift 1 pound of material. It can color, clean, or soil items in a 1-foot cube each round. It can chill, warm, or flavor 1 pound of nonliving material. It cannot deal damage or affect the concentration of spellcasters. Prestidigitation can create small objects, but they look crude and artificial. The materials created by a prestidigitation spell are extremely fragile, and they cannot be used as tools, weapons, or spell components. Finally, a prestidigitation lacks the power to duplicate any other spell effects. Any actual change to an object (beyond just moving, cleaning, or soiling it) persists only 1 hour.

    PRISMATIC SPHERE

    Level: Illusionist 9
    Range: A 10-ft. radius around you
    Duration: 1 hour

    DESCRIPTION

    A sphere of seven colors whirls about the illusionist, with a radius of ten feet. The glowing colors form a layered spectrum; to destroy the sphere, each layer must be destroyed in turn from Red to Orange, to Yellow, to Blue, to Indigo, and then to the innermost Violet layer. Any creature of 7 or fewer hit dice that looks upon the sphere will be blinded for 1d6 turns.

    Range: 10 ft.

    Area of Effect: See below

    PROGRAMMED IMAGE

    Level: Illusionist 6
    Range: 240 ft.
    Duration: Permanent

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell functions like phantasmal force, except that this spell activates when a specific condition occurs and the duration is permanent. The event that triggers the illusion can be as general or as specific and detailed as desired but must be based on an audible, tactile, olfactory, or visual trigger. The trigger cannot be based on some quality not normally obvious to the senses.

    PROJECT IMAGE

    Level: Illusionist 5
    Range: 240 ft.
    Duration: 1 round per level

    DESCRIPTION

    The caster projects an image of himself or herself, to a maximum range of 240 feet. Not only does the projected image mimic the caster’s sounds and gestures, but also any spells being cast will appear to originate from the image.

    PYROTECHNICS

    Level: Illusionist 2
    Range: 240 ft
    Duration: 1 hour

    DESCRIPTION

    The caster creates either fireworks or blinding smoke from a normal fire source such as a torch or campfire. The Referee will decide exactly how much smoke is produced, what effect it has, and what happens to it as it’s produced, but the amount of smoke will definitely be more than 20 cubic feet.

    RAINBOW PATTERN

    Level: Illusionist 4
    Range: A 20-ft. radius pattern within 120 feet
    Duration: Concentration + 1 round per level

    DESCRIPTION

    You create a 40-foot wide, rainbow-hued pattern of interweaving colors that fascinates up to 24 HD of creatures within it. An affected creature that fails its saves is fascinated by the pattern. With a simple gesture, you can make the rainbow pattern move up to 30 feet per round, moving its effective point of origin. All fascinated creatures follow the moving rainbow of light, trying to get or remain within the effect. Fascinated creatures who are restrained and removed from the pattern still try to follow it. If the pattern leads its subjects into a dangerous area each fascinated creature gets a second saving throw. If the view of the lights is completely blocked creatures who can’t see them are no longer affected.

    READ LANGUAGES

    Level: Illusionist 1
    Range: Personal
    Duration: One or two readings

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell allows the caster to decipher directions, instructions, and formulae in languages unknown to the caster. Particularly useful for treasure maps; doesn’t solve codes.

    READ MAGIC

    Level: Illusionist 1
    Range: Personal
    Duration: 2 scrolls or other magical writings

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell allows the caster to read the magical writings upon scrolls and (occasionally) dungeon walls. Without the use of this spell, magical writing cannot be read even by a Magic-user.

    RECURRING IMAGE

    Level: Illusionist 7
    Range: 1000 ft.
    Duration: Permanent

    DESCRIPTION

    As programmed image, except recurring figments follow a predetermined script decided upon by the caster. The illusion then follows that script without the caster having to concentrate on it and repeats it after a predetermined amount of time (maximum of 1 turn per caster level) or upon a specific triggering condition. The illusion created can include intelligible speech if the character wishes. For instance, the character could create the reoccurring illusion of several orcs playing cards and arguing, culminating in a fistfight. The spell then repeats this scene from beginning to end at the predetermined time or trigger.

    ROPE TRICK

    Level: Illusionist 2
    Range: Touch
    Duration: 2 turns per level

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell enchants a rope to become a portal into an extra-dimensional pocket of unreality opened by the spell. The rope rises in the air and then hangs, suspended by its connection to the extra-dimensional hideaway. Up to six medium-size people can hide in the space (five, if the rope is to be pulled up and into the space as well). At the spell’s expiration, the inhabitants or contents of the space will fall into normal reality if they have not already departed. True reality is visible through the portal, but cannot be affected from within.

    SCARE

    Level: Illusionist 2
    Range: 30 ft.
    Duration: 2d6 rounds

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell causes terror in creatures of less than 6th level or 6 HD. Such creatures are entitled to a saving throw, which, if successful, allows them to shake off the spell’s effect entirely. If a creature fails the saving throw, however, it will become frozen with terror. It can fight if attacked, but suffers a -1 penalty to all attack, damage, and saving throw rolls.

    SCINTILLATING BURST

    Level: Illusionist 3
    Range: A 20-ft. radius burst within 120 feet
    Duration: Instantaneous

    DESCRIPTION

    You create a burst of coruscating, multi-hued motes that fills the area. Every creature caught within the burst takes 3d6 points of damage and must make a saving throw. Creatures that successfully save are dazzled for 1 round, while those that fail are blinded for 1d4 rounds. Creatures that cannot see are not blinded or dazzled, but still take damage from a scintillating burst.

    SCINTILLATING DOOM

    Level: Illusionist 9
    Range: A 20-foot cube within 60 ft.
    Duration: 1 round per level

    DESCRIPTION

    A field of shimmering, scintillating energy of brilliant colors springs into being at the coordinate designated by you. All those inside the energy field are treated as if they have been subjected to a prismatic spray spell, including both the blindness and the random color strike effect (see below). Every round as a standard action, you may move the scintillating doom up to 30 feet. Alternately, you may set the spell to move in a set direction at up to 30 feet per round until you again redirect it or the spell ends. You can only redirect the field if it is within the spell’s maximum range and you have line of effect to it. Any creature moving within the area of the spell is immediately subjected the following effects. First, creatures with 8 HD or less are immediately blinded for 2d4 rounds. Second, creatures are randomly effected by one color of the scintillating lights with effects determined on the table below. A creature can only be affected by this spell a maximum of once per round.

    1d8 Color Effect of Color 1 Red

    Deals 12 points of damage (save for half).

    2 Orange

    Deals 24 points of damage (save for half).

    3 Yellow

    Deals 48 points of damage (save for half).

    SCINTILLATING PATTERN

    Level: Illusionist 8
    Range: 60 feet
    Duration: Concentration + 2 rounds

    DESCRIPTION

    A twisting pattern of discordant, coruscating colors weaves through the air, affecting creatures within it. The spell affects a total number of Hit Dice of creatures equal to your caster level within a 20-ft sphere. The spell affects each subject according to its Hit Dice.

  • 6 HD or less: Unconscious for 1d4 rounds, then stunned for 1d4 rounds, and then confused for 1d4 rounds.
  • 7-12: Stunned for 1d4 rounds, and then confused for 1d4 rounds.
  • 13+: Confused for 1d4 rounds.

    SCREEN

    Level: Illusionist 8
    Range: 60 feet
    Duration: 24 hours

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell combines several elements to create a powerful protection from scrying and direct observation. When casting the spell, you dictate what will and will not be observed in the spell’s area. The illusion created must be stated in general terms. Once the conditions are set, they cannot be changed. Attempts to scry the area automatically detect the image stated by you with no save allowed. Sight and sound are appropriate to the illusion created. Direct observation may allow a save (as per a normal illusion), if there is cause to disbelieve what is seen. Even entering the area does not cancel the illusion or necessarily allow a save, assuming that hidden beings take care to stay out of the way of those affected by the illusion.

    SECRET CHEST

    Level: Illusionist 5
    Range: See text
    Duration: 60 days

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell allows the magic user to shift a magically crafted treasure chest into an extra-dimensional plane, where it will be safe from those who might seek to steal the caster’s possessions. The chest itself must be crafted of the finest materials in order to support the spell’s magic, and it will cost a minimum of 5,000 gp to have a craftsman or craftsmen build it, together with a second, miniature copy. When the magic user casts the spell, one hand upon the chest and one upon the miniature, the chest disappears into other dimensions, together with its contents. These contents may be up to one cubic foot of material per caster level (and no more than this) regardless of the chest’s actual volume. If the chest contains any living matter, there is a 75% chance that the spell will completely fail, although if it should succeed, the living creature will be imprisoned in the extra-dimensional plane until freed. The caster (and only the caster) can use the miniature chest to retrieve the larger one wherever he or she might be. It is possible, although not likely, that some extra-dimensional creature or traveler might happen upon the chest. So long as the chest remains in the extra-dimensional plane, the magic user will still be able to retrieve it (although it may have been looted). No creature on the material plane has any chance using any magic known to humanity to locate a secret chest that has been by means of this spell. After the spell duration expires, there is a cumulative 1 in 20 chance per day that the spell’s link to the chest will fail, and the chest will be irrecoverable.

    SEEMING

    Level: Illusionist 5
    Range: 60 ft.
    Duration: 12 hours

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell functions like change self, except that you can change the appearance of other people as well. The spell can affect one creature per level of the illusionist. Affected creatures resume their normal appearances if slain. Unwilling targets can negate the spell’s effect on them by making a saving throw.

    SERIAL DREAM

    Level: Illusionist 6
    Range: Unlimited
    Duration: Permanent or 1 week per level (see text)

    DESCRIPTION

    At the beginning of the spell, you must write down the target’s name or some title that leaves no doubt as to the target’s identity. The target must not have more HD than you for the spell to take effect. You also choose a task or condition that must be fulfilled by the target of the spell, and create a dream which directs the target to accomplish this task or condition. It typically takes 1 round or longer to compose the dream, and you control all details of it (when and where it seems to take place, what images of items or other people to appear, though none may speak except you). The target then has this dream periodically until the task is accomplished or the condition is brought about. If the task is open-ended or the target cannot bring about the condition through his own actions the spell ends after 1 week per caster level. The spell immediately ends when the task or condition is accomplished. When the spell is cast, you may choose one of two versions. In the first, the target has the dream each time he sleeps if he has not taken some action towards accomplishing the task since sleeping last. The target suffers no penalty—he is simply reminded nightly until the task is fulfilled. In the second version, the dream occurs once per week (roll randomly for day), and each full day that passes during which the target does not seek to fulfill the condition or task in the dream he suffers 1d6 points of phantasmal damage, which cannot be cured through normal or magical means. This damage cannot exceed 9/10ths (90%) of the target’s total maximum hp. This damage begins to recover normally 1 day after the target once again takes some action to accomplish the task. Creatures that don’t sleep or dream are immune to this spell.

    SHADES

    Level: Illusionist 9
    Range: See text
    Duration: See text

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell functions like shadow conjuration, except that it mimics magic-user conjuration and summoning spells of 8th level or lower. The illusory conjurations created deal four-fifths (80%) damage to nonbelievers, and non?damaging effects are 80% likely to work against nonbelievers.

    SHADOW CURSE

    Level: Illusionist 6
    Range: Touch negates
    Duration: 1 round per level

    DESCRIPTION

    The target of the spell is transformed into a pitch-black, two-dimensional version of itself, completely insubstantial. The subject may move in the same manner and speed as normal, and may be struck only by magical weapons, but may not cast spells or make any physical attacks. The target cannot interact with the physical world for the duration of the spell, but is subject to physical barriers as normal.

    SHADOW DOOR

    Level: Illusionist 5
    Range: 60 ft.
    Duration: 1 round per level

    DESCRIPTION

    With a mystical gesture, the illusionist creates an illusory door (either in a wall or free-standing). If the illusionist steps through, he or she disappears from sight and may go where he or she pleases. If anyone else opens the door, they will perceive a small empty room. The caster’s invisibility after passing through the shadow door is particularly powerful and cannot be seen by use of detect invisibility, although he or she can be seen with more powerful divination magic.

    SHADOW EVOCATION

    Level: Illusionist 5
    Range: See text
    Duration: See text

    DESCRIPTION

    You use shadows to cast a quasi-real, illusory version of one of the following magic-user spells: magic missile, shocking grasp, fireball, lightning bolt, ice storm, wall of fire, or wall of ice. Spells that deal damage have normal effects unless an affected creature succeeds on a saving throw. Each disbelieving creature takes only one-fifth damage from the attack. If the disbelieved attack has a special effect other than damage, that effect is one-fifth as strong (if applicable) or only 20% likely to occur. Non-damaging effects have normal effects except against those who disbelieve them. Against disbelievers, they have no effect.

    SHADOW EVOCATION, GREATER

    Level: Illusionist 8
    Range: See text
    Duration: See text

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell functions like shadow evocation, except that it enables you to create partially real, illusory versions of the following magic-user spells: cloudkill, death spell, delayed blast fireball, disintegrate, wall of iron, or wall of stone. If recognized as a greater shadow evocation, a damaging spell deals only three-fifths (60%) damage.

    SHADOW WALK

    Level: Illusionist 6
    Range: Touch
    Duration: 1 hour per level

    DESCRIPTION

    You and any creature you touch are then transported to a path along the borderlands of reality. The effect is largely illusory, but the path is quasi-real. You can take more than one creature along with you (up to one per level), but all must be touching each other. In the region of unreality, you move at a rate of 50 miles per hour relative to “normal” space, although you do not feel as though you are moving swiftly. You can see enough of the real world to determine your location, but not enough to discern details or spy without ending the spell. Beings in reality generally cannot see you.

    SHADOWFORM

    Level: Illusionist 7
    Range: Personal
    Duration: 1 hour per level

    DESCRIPTION

    You become a shadow as if you had used the polymorph self spell with the following exceptions. You do not recover any hp from the transformation, and retain your own abilities as well as those of a shadow. Finally, while in shadow form you may travel as if under the effects of the shadow walk spell.

    SILENCE, 15 FT RADIUS

    Level: Illusionist 2
    Range: 120 ft.
    Duration: 2 hours

    DESCRIPTION

    Magical silence falls in an area 15 feet around the targeted creature or object, and moves with it. Nothing from this area can be heard outside, no matter how loud.

    SILENT IMAGE

    Level: Illusionist 1
    Range: 240 feet
    Duration: Concentration

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell creates the visual illusion of an object, creature, or force, as visualized by you. The illusion does not create sound, smell, texture, or temperature. You can move the image within the limits of the size of the effect.

    SIMULACRUM

    Level: Illusionist 7
    Range: Touch
    Duration: Permanent

    DESCRIPTION

    The caster creates a duplicate of himself or some other person. The basic form is created from snow and ice, and must then be animated (animate dead is an acceptable means). A limited wish (along with the actual simulacrum spell) is then used to imbue the animated form with intelligence and certain knowledge of the person being simulated. The simulacrum gains 30–60% (d3x10%) of the simulated creature’s knowledge and experience. The simulacrum follows its creator’s orders. It is worthy of note that the simulacrum is not a perfect representation of the original. Side by side, the differences are obvious, and the simulacrum is a magical creature detectable with a detect magic spell. If the original of the simulacrum dies, a strange effect begins: the simulacrum begins to gain the knowledge and experience of the dead individual at a rate of 1% per week (to a maximum of 90%).

    SOOTHING PATTERN

    Level: Illusionist 6
    Range: A 50-foot wide pattern within 240 ft.
    Duration: Concentration + 4 rounds

    DESCRIPTION

    As hypnotic pattern, except that a soothing pattern is 50-feet wide and renders its targets unconscious. The subtle, shifting pattern of lights created by a soothing pattern causes creatures to fall into a deep sleep, similar to the effects of a sleep spell, except that nothing can awaken the affected creatures until the spell ends. Hitting or wounding an affected creature will not awaken it. Roll 2d6+1 per caster level to determine the total number of HD affected (maximum +20). The creatures within the area of effect that have the fewest HD are affected first by the spell. Creatures possessing equal HD are affected in their order of proximity to the spell’s caster, beginning with the creature closest to the caster. Sightless creatures are not affected by this spell, nor are creatures that do not sleep.

    SPECTRAL TERRORS

    Level: Illusionist 2
    Range: 120 ft.
    Duration: Instantaneous

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell subjects the target to phantasmal images drawn from its latent or suppressed fears. The target suffers 2d4 points of damage from sheer terror and must make a save or flee in terror, with a 30% chance to drop whatever they are holding.

    SPOOK

    Level: Illusionist 1
    Range: 60 ft.
    Duration: 1 turn

    DESCRIPTION

    You cast this upon a single intelligent foe, who turns and flees in terror from you. The target believes themselves to be pursued for up to 10 rounds, although they can make a saving throw to overcome the spell each round after the first.

    SUGGESTION

    Level: Illusionist 2
    Range: Shouting distance
    Duration: 1 week

    DESCRIPTION

    You speak a hypnotic suggestion to your intended victim. If the victim fails a saving throw, he will carry out the suggestion (as long as it can be performed within a week). The suggestion might not call for the action to be carried out immediately. A suggestion that the victim kill himself is only 1% likely to be obeyed.

    SUGGESTIVE SCRIPT

    Level: Illusionist 3
    Range: Touch
    Duration: One day per level

    DESCRIPTION

    You write instructions or other information on parchment, paper, or any suitable writing material. The script appears to be some form of foreign or magical writing. Only the person (or people) designated by you at the time of the casting are able to read the writing; it’s unintelligible to any other character, although an illusionist recognizes it as illusory script. Any unauthorized creature attempting to read the script triggers a potent hypnotic effect and must make a saving throw. A successful saving throw means the creature can look away with only a mild sense of disorientation. Failure means the creature is subject to a suggestion implanted in the script by you at the time the suggestive script spell was cast. The suggestion lasts 1 day, instead of 1 week.

    SUMMON SHADOW

    Level: Illusionist 5
    Range: 60 ft.
    Duration: 1 round + 1 round per level

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell summons 1 shadow per caster level from the shadow planes. The shadows are under the illusionist’s command and will do his or her bidding. If turned, they will return to the place from whence they came.

    SWAY

    Level: Illusionist 4
    Range: Touch
    Area: A 120-ft. radius around you
    Duration: Instantaneous

    DESCRIPTION

    This spell shifts the attitude of all creatures within the area one step better or worse (as determined by the caster at the time of casting) in regards to a specific group, race, or location (from indifferent to hostile or from friendly to helpful, and so on). Once shifted, the attitude changes in response to normal interaction with the group, race, or location.

    TANGLED SCRIPT

    Level: Illusionist 5
    Range: Touch
    Duration: 1 day per level or until triggered

    DESCRIPTION

    You create a piece of meaningless text that appears normal and harmless at first glance, but poses a serious danger to anyone reading it. In this case, “reading” the script means any attempt to study it, identify it, or fathom its meaning. On a successful save, the reader of the tangled script is able to look away with only a slight sense of discomfort, but a failed save causes the reader to suffer a phantasmal assault that wreaks havoc on the mind, dealing 1d4 points of permanent Intelligence attribute damage and causing the victim to stare at the tangled script, fascinated for 2d4 rounds. If the fascinate effect is broken early, the reader is left confused (as the spell) for 1d4 rounds. Tangled script vanishes if even one creature reads it; but several different creatures can begin reading in the same round and all be affected.

    TIME ACCELERATION

    Level: Illusionist 7
    Range: One 10-foot cube within 30 ft.
    Duration: 1 hour per level

    DESCRIPTION

    The spell affects the minds and bodies of those entering the area into believing the passage of time is much faster than normal. Every turn spent in the area seems like a full hour; every hour is equal to six hours; four hours is equal to one day. While in the area, a creature must eat, sleep, etc. according to the faster passage of time. Spells cast or in effect in the area follow the accelerated passage of time. Likewise, creatures in the area rest, heal, and recover lost spells at an accelerated rate.

    Time acceleration dispels and counters time deceleration.
