Enigma Masque

Enigma Masque

Tier 1 Epic illusion

Casting Time: 1 action
Range: Touch
Components: V, S, M (a portrait of a forgotten hero)
Duration: Concentration, up to 24 hours

You conceal a creature you touch in a magical mask that protects its identity and grants it a fictional persona of your own design. As a part of casting the spell, you must fabricate an entirely new character of the same size and type as the affected creature. You determine the character’s name, personality, background, alignment, and any other details by which you wish others to know the character. For the duration of the spell, the target has a +10 bonus on Charisma ability checks to maintain the persona and convince others of its validity. The first time another creature perceives the target, it must attempt an Intelligence saving throw. On a failure, the creature becomes completely convinced the target is the persona, even if common sense would indicate otherwise, and has Epic disadvantage on Charisma and Wisdom ability checks against the target. An affected creature will even fabricate false memories to stretch reason to ridiculous degrees if necessary to believe the persona. If the true nature of the target is revealed through incontrovertible proof to an affected creature, the effect ends.

If you cast this spell every day for 1 week on the same target, its duration becomes permanent.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell at a tier higher than tier 1, you may affect up to two additional creatures within reach per tier above tier 1.
