By casting certain rare incenses and herbs into a burning brazier, the sorcerer conjures up a cloud of thick and scented smoke. This dense smoke gives concealment. Anyone in the smoke feels dizzy, disorientated and intoxicated, and so suffers a –2 penalty to all saving throws and skill checks. The sorcerer is immune to this smoke. Furthermore, the sorcerer may shape the smoke, causing images and illusions to form. These illusions can be used to disguise the sorcerer’s appearance, create fanciful or erotic images, or even appear horrific, forcing a Terror check (DC for the test is equal to the casting check) on those who see them. Only those who have inhaled the smoke can see the illusions. A Will save is permitted to see through the illusions. The sorcerer may change the illusion displayed each round as a free action, but only one Terror check per victim can be caused by this spell. Note that the sorcerer does not need an active heart of flames to cast this spell.

Material Components: Incense and herbs worth 200 silver pieces.
