Mask of Terror

Mask of Terror Spell7

Emotion Fear Illusion Mental Visual

Traditions arcane, occult, primal

Cast [two-actions] somatic, verbal

Range 30 feet; Targets 1 creature; Duration 1 minute


The target appears to be a gruesome and terrifying creature.

The effect is unique to each observer, so a human viewing the target might see a demon with bloody fangs, but a demon observing the target might see a glowing angelic visage.

When any creature attempts a hostile action against the target, the creature must attempt a Will save. It is then temporarily immune until the end of its next turn.

Success The creature is unaffected.

Failure The creature becomes frightened 2 before using its action.

Critical Failure The creature becomes frightened 2, and its action fails and is wasted.


Heightened (8th) You can target up to 5 creatures. If a creature uses a hostile action or reaction that affects multiple targets simultaneously, it needs to attempt only one save against mask of terror.
