Illusory Object

Illusory Object Spell1

Illusion Visual

Traditions arcane, occult

Cast [two-actions] somatic, verbal

Range 500 feet; Area 20-foot burst; Duration 10 minutes


You create an illusory visual image of a stationary object.

The entire image must fit within the spell’s area. The object appears to animate naturally, but it doesn’t make sounds or generate smells. For example, water would appear to pour down an illusory waterfall, but it would be Silent.

Any creature that touches the image or uses the Seek action to examine it can attempt to disbelieve your illusion.


Heightened (2nd) Your image makes appropriate sounds, generates normal smells, and feels right to the touch. The spell gains the auditory trait. The duration increases to 1 hour.

Heightened (5th) As the 2nd-level version, but the duration is unlimited.
