False tracks was a common alteration spell used by ninjas to move stealthily.[1][2] The spell was very rare outside Kara-Tur.[1]


When cast, the spell allowed a ninja to move in silence. The ninja would not leave any footprints, and did not trigger traps that operated using a pressure or weight trigger. The spell required the ninja to move slowly; if they moved faster than walking pace, the spell was broken. The reverse of this spell was leadfoot.[1][2]


The spell required only a somatic component, kuji-kiri hand gestures.[1][2]
