Going well with the thievery skill and the life of a rogue, possessing the power of Illusion will let a character create lifelike images or sounds to baffle and confuse.


Though you might not think so, Illusion is a sphere with hundreds of possible applications, drawing a guards attention away with a will-o’-the-wisp for them to chase or scaring off a dull witted enemy with the image of a terrifying monster are just a couple of examples.

Combat EffectsEdit

Illusion effects cannot be resisted.

Mirror ImageEdit

Illusion's Instant Effect is called Mirror Image. When it's cast successfully, the combat screen will say:

  • You cleverly craft (see chart) mirror images of yourself...

This will give you a chance to dodge your foe's attack, which will result in either:

  • Your enemy targets one of your mirror images...


  • Your enemy targets the true you...

Sometimes you will also get a bonus to your roll:

  • +(see chart) adjustment to your combat roll.

Then you make your attack.

Summon IllusionEdit

Illusion's Sustained Effect is Summon Illusion. The illusion will have one of three effects: act as a Mirror Image, increase your MR, or increase your combat roll.

When you cast it, you will get this message:

  • You summon a lifelike illusion...

On following rounds you will get this message:

  • Your summoned illusion engages your foe...

If it acts as Mirror Image, you will get one of these messages:

  • Your enemy targets your summoned illusion...
  • Your enemy targets you...

If it gives you a bonus to MR:

  • +(see chart) to your Melee Rating this round.

If it gives you a bonus to your roll:

  • +(see chart) adjustment to your combat roll.

You will continue to attack alongside your illusion.
