This spell paralyzes targets.

Original D&D Edit

Introduced in The Strategic Review 1-4, along with the Illusionist. Dragon Magazine #12 preserved this spell on the Illusionist list.

  • Spell Level 3
  • Range 18"

Paralyzes twice as many Hit Dice as the Illusionist has levels. It lasts until the Illusionist removes it, or it is dispelled.

AD&D 2eEdit

Spell Level: 3 Rarity: Uncommon (exclusive

to illusionists and shadow mages)

Schools: Illusion, Shadow
Components: V, S
Range: 10 yds/level Casting Time: 3
Duration: Special Saving Throw: Negates
Area: 20-ft. cube

The caster holds enemies rigid with a powerful illusion. The caster can affect any non-mindless creature in the area, up to a total number of Hit Dice equal to twice their caster level. The creatures with the lowest Hit Dice are affected first, and any affected creature is allowed a saving throw vs. paralyzation to negate the spell. The effect lasts for an hour, though the caster can end it early, and spells like dispel illusion or dispel magic will end the efect as well.
