By means of this spell, the caster changes their appearance via a masking illusion. This differs from alter self in that it is an illusion, rather than a bodily transformation, and so is purely useful for disguise.

Original D&D Edit

The spell debuted along with the Illusionist in The Strategic Review 1-4. It was removed from their list in Dragon Magazine #12.

  • Spell Level 1
  • Duration: 10 + caster level + 1d6

Makes the caster appear as a creature of the same general size and shape. The caster could appear as a gnoll, for instance, but not as a wyvern.

AD&DEdit

Spell DetailsEdit

  • Spell Level 1 (Illusionist)
  • Components: Verbal, Somatic
  • Casting Time: 1 Segment
  • Range: 6" + 1"/level
  • Target: Self
  • Duration: 2d6 rounds + 2 rounds/level

Schools: Illusion/Phantasm

Description Edit

You coat yourself in an illusion that makes you appear up to 1 foot taller or shorter, thin, fat, or of moderate weight, appearing as any creature that shares your body shape (generally, humanoid)

Uses Edit

This spell is a very able disguise in most circumstances, and it can augment a more physical disguise quite well, hiding flaws and structures effectively. The short duration means it is most useful for a quick bluff, and is unlikely to hold up to long-term scrutiny, or anything more than a visual appraisal.

AD&D 2e Edit

Change SelfEdit

Spell Level: 1 Rarity: Common
Schools: Illusion/Phantasm
Components: V, S
Range: Personal Casting Time: 1
Duration: 2d6 rds + 2 rds/level Saving Throw: None
Target: The caster

You coat yourself in an illusion that makes you appear up to 1 foot taller or shorter, thin, fat, or of moderate weight, appearing as any creature that shares your body shape (generally, humanoid). The illusion is only visual, and it does not give you the tactile properties of the form you manifest. You cannot duplicate a specific individual with this spell, and you do not acquire the mannerisms or abilities of the creature you appear to be. If a viewer of the illusion has reason to suspect you are not what you seem, they may receive a saving throw.
