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

91-100 Creature gains 4d4 negative levels. No further rolls required for this creature.
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, can sever the illusion’s hold over a target’s mind. Moving a victim of the spell out of its original area of effect does not help, but successfully attacking an affected ally (even nonlethally) breaks the spell.

XP Cost: 2,000
