Chalk and the Scholar of Wexos spied their rival, Stork as the despicable wizard was approaching the keep of King Insoki the Idle.
“We should turn his horse into a catoblepas,” Chalk suggested.
“Or him into a waif?” countered the illusionist.
“You have a spell handy?” Chalk asked.
The Scholar of Wexos mumbled a simple incantation and threw the spell at Stork as the latter caught sight of the two spellcasters. Chalk grinned and waved. Stork suddenly became distracted by a long waving thread which he began pulling from his coat. He pulled at the wayward thread for several seconds and noticed that his coat looked like it had been crudely patched up. Aghast, he slowed his horse down to trot and realized that his clothing looked ragged. Shaky a grimy fist at the two rivals Stork turned his horse around and plunged into the nearby trees.
“We’d better get out of here before he retaliates!” Chalk suggested. “He has very little sense of humor!”
Wastrel’s Guise (Illusionist)
Range: 10′ per level of illusionist
Duration: One turn per level of illusionist
This simple illusionist spell is used to make another look ragged and a bit more unkempt and desperate than they really are. This can be used for a sympathetic look or to make a rival look more threadbare and haggard than they really are. Depending on the situation, if one is trying to look pathetic for sympathy this spell grants a +1 to any Charisma rolls but a -2 to any similar attribute rolls to anyone under the spell trying to look impressive or foreboding. A target of the spell must make a save versus spells at -1 to resist this magic.
