The caster creates a very livid, realistic, but highly morphic illusion that spans a massive area, in which the caster may determine by own choice who to try and affect. Targets caught within the illusion willingly regard it as a substitute reality, i.e., believe it to be real. The illusion contains audible, olfactory, tactile, taste- and thermal effects, and the visions and sensations incurred compel the interpreting mind to feel great pain or confusion. If a target fails a will save, it is exposed to a certain effect decided by a percentile.

d% Result Effect

Effects may persist even when the afflicted creatures exit the initial radius of effect. A greater restoration rids the creature of the effects on this table.

This spell delivers its damage by placing interfering currents of powerful magic in the synapses of one’s brain. Any profound external impulse, such as pain, allows the victim a new Will save to try and break the spells affects. Moving a victim of the spell out of its original area of effect does not help but once outside one is allows a new will save every round to break the spell. Any who die within the spells original area of effect are immediately animated as wightsl up to 250HD worth of creatures can be re-animated. These are not under the casters control and will persist after the spell ends, they act as normal wights once created.

XP Cost: 14,200xp
