False vision was an illusion spell that fooled scrying with an illusion.[2]

Effect[edit | edit source]

A caster used this spell to become undetectable to all forms of scrying. If the caster knew about the scrying, they could use this spell to create an illusion which was detected by the creature scrying. This illusions could be both visual and audible. This illusion required the caster's full concentration, if they lost focus the illusion was lifted and a re-casting of the spell was required to create a new one. Despite this, the area in which the caster was in remained protected from scrying.[2]

Components[edit | edit source]

In addition to verbal and somatic components, the spell required a material component, ground dust of a jade with a minimu value of 250 gp. During casting, this dust was released into the air.[2]

History[edit | edit source]

The spell was attributed to Netherese arcanist Smolyn in −1919 DR and was originally called Smolyn's fraud.[1] This spell was one often used by individuals of the Abbalaya of Calimshan.[6]
