Project image was an illusion spell that created an illusory double that could talk and cast spells.[3]


The caster created a shadow duplicate of their self. It looked, sounded, and smelled like them but was intangible. The shadow mimicked their actions (including speech) unless they concentrated on making it act differently. They could see through its eyes and hear through its ears as if they were standing where it was. The caster could choose to switch from seeing through its eyes to seeing normally, or back again.

If they desired, any spell they cast targeted by touch could originate from the shadow instead of from their own body. (The shadow was quasi-real, just real enough to cast spells that originated from the caster.) The shadow could cast spells on itself only if those spells affected shadows.[3]

The caster required an unobstructed path to the shadow duplicate. Any obstruction or instantaneous movement by the caster caused the spell to end.[3]

Material componentsEdit

In addition to somatic and verbal components, the spell required a doll resembling the caster, worth at 5 gp in materials.[3]


The spell was attributed to Netherese arcanist Toscudlo in −1521 DR and was originally called Toscudlo's project image.[1]
