Available to: Illusionists
Duration: 1 turn per level
This spell creates the convincing illusion that the caster is accompanied by a band of followers, taking whatever general form the caster desires. The group of companions is dynamic and will adapt its number and volume so as to always appear to be a slightly larger or more formidable force than any observing opposition. Thus, an illusionist ambushed by a group of brigands may appear to be protected by a slightly larger band of knights, while an illusionist encountering an army poised for war may appear to be in command of a slightly larger or better equipped force.
If any of the illusionary companions is touched, it will dissipate immediately, giving the game away. Otherwise the companions are perfectly convincing, moving as a force of the appropriate size, making appropriate (if generic) sounds, and giving off an appropriate smell.
