Phantasmal Assailants

(Complete Arcane, p. 117)

Illusion (Phantasm) [Fear, Mind-Affecting]
Level: Sorcerer 2, Wizard 2,
Components: V, S,
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
Target: One living creature
Duration: Instantaneous
Saving Throw: Will disbelief (if interacted with), then Fortitude half; see text
Spell Resistance: Yes

You create phantasmal images of nightmare creatures in the target's mind, visible only as shadowy shapes to you and unseen by all others. If the target succeeds on an initial Will save, it recognizes that the images are not real, and the spell fails. If not, the phantasms strike the target, dealing 4 points of Wisdom damage and 4 points of Dexterity damage (2 points each on a successful Fortitude save). If the subject of a phantasmal assailant succeeds in disbelieving and is wearing a helm of telepathy, the spell can be turned back upon you with the same effect.
