Shadow Evocation
3rd-level Illusion
Casting time: 1 action
Range: Special
Components: V, S
Duration: Special

You tap energy from the Plane of Shadow to cast a quasi-real, illusory version of an evocation spell. When you cast this spell, choose an evocation spell from the sorcerer or wizard spell list that is 2nd level or lower. This spell copies that spell in its entirety, and acts as if the copied spell were cast from a 2nd-level spell slot. The copied spell is treated as an illusion spell, instead of an evocation spell. This spell's range and duration are equal to the range and duration of the spell being copied, and requires concentration if the spell being copied also requires concentration.

When a creature would be affected by a spell copied by shadow evocation, it can make an Intelligence saving throw. On a success, the creature disbelieves the illusion. A disbelieving creature takes only one-fifth the damage from this spell (If applicable. Round normally.). If the disbelieved attack has an effect other than damage, that effect is one-fifth as strong (if applicable) or only 20% likely to occur. Regardless of the result of the save to disbelieve, an affected creature is also allowed any saving throw or ability check that the spell being simulated allows.

Nondamaging effects have normal effects except against those who disbelieve them. Against disbelievers, they have no effect.

Objects automatically succeed on their Intelligence saving throw against this spell.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 4th level or higher, the maximum level of evocation spell you can copy increases by one level, and the spell slot it is treated as being cast from increases by one level for each slot level above 3rd.
