Causes targets in a cone-shaped area to flee in panic.
Original D&D Edit
The spell appears in The Strategic Review 1-4, as part of the Illusionist class. A fear effect can also be generated from a Wand of Fear, a magic item contained in Monsters & Treasure. Dragon Magazine #12 preserved this spell on the Illusionist list.
