About the Illusions

The number of characters you can use in your illusions improves with higher skills. Different castings of Torqvald's Illusion Generatrix can vary by ~100 characters.

When you finish creating your illusion, you will gain a new spell that shows up when you type spells. Its name is randomized, but it will have your name at the beginning.

The illusions cost 47 gp to cast (may vary with skills  research If this has been marked on a page, it's because there was something that probably isn't known, that the person who edited the page thinks could be found out. Perhaps you could figure this thing out, and be famous evermore. ) and take up 10 units of mindspace.

Illusions are miscellaneous spells with 3 stages:

Sometimes, an illusion will require components such as a bronze ring, and sometimes it will require no components. This appears to be randomly determined when you first create the illusion.

You may use colours in your illusions. See help usercolour, help colours, and help colour list. The code text does not count against the character limit.

All of the custom text you typed for your illusion will display at once even if they are on different lines, rather than one after the other as would be normal for other spells.

To get an illusion with a high character count and no components, you may need to cast Torqvald's Illusion Generatrix multiple times.
