This spell allows you to safeguard important knowledge, even from yourself. When casting this spell, you recount one piece of knowledge you possess (up to a maximum of 50 words). This knowledge disappears utterly from your mind, and you might not realize you forgot something. The magic of the spell patches omissions in your memory with indistinct haze. Repress memory protects against detect thoughts, discern lies, zone of truth, and similar spells, though careful questioning may reveal the gaps in your memory, or that your memory has been affected by the spell.

Whenever the spell is cast, the repressed memories appear in the caster's Memory Palace, altering the decorations in a subtle manner, recognizable only by the caster. The memory may be restored by the caster by performing a ceremonial ritual that takes 1 hour to complete and requires a Rituals skill check (DC 15).

At the Games Master's discretion, multiple castings of this spell might erase memories of a lengthier event or all memory of a place or individual from your memory.
