Components

This spell requiring a pinch of tobacco (consumed), a mirror and a pipe.

Effects

On being transported to the magical land, the target:

  • will stop fighting you, if they were fighting you in the first place (and you will stop fighting them)
  • will not be able to cast spells or perform rituals
  • will not be able to look at anything (attempting to do so just returns the room description of the mirage)
  • will, if they try to move, go in a random direction instead of the one selected
  • will wander randomly at intervals
  • will get a line in their description saying they "look lost"
  • will not be able to speak normally (anything they say comes out nonsense)

Upon failing the spell, you will be transported to the magical land yourself. Anyone you were fighting (possibly only in the same roomresearch) will stop fighting you and you will stop fighting them.

Attacking the muddled person will end the spell.
