Permanent image, also known as permanent illusion,[5][9] was an arcane illusion spell that conjured an illusion more convincing than its lesser image cousins.[2][3]


This spell functioned in the same manner as silent image, but in addition to providing an image it also included elements of sound, smell and temperature. Furthermore, its duration was unlimited. The caster could let the image move while concentrating, otherwise it remained still.[2][3]

Material componentsEdit

In addition to verbal and somatic components, permanent image required a material component: a small piece of fleece and jade powder of a value of 100 gp in the casting.[2][3]


The spell was credited to the Netherese arcanist Toscudlo in −1474 DR and was originally called Toscudlo's permanent illusion.[1]
