“Say goodbye to your world.”

This spell enables you to destroy the victim’s ability to perceive reality, sending it into a catatonic state. When Reality Veil is cast, you can target either a single creature within range or a group of creatures all located within the spell’s area.

  • Single Target: If Reality Veil targets a single creature, that creature’s senses are pinched off from the real world unless it succeeds on a will save. The subject’s senses are all completely fabricated by you (decided at the time of casting. Casting this spell a second time allows you to alter the reality the victim lives in), though it may not realize this. In reality, the subject sprawls limply, drooling and mewling, and eventually dies of thirst and starvation without care. The subject lives within its own made-up world until the time of its actual death.

  • Area Effect: If Reality Veil is cast on an area, it sends all affected creatures into a shared catatonia (the world is a construct, but within the world, the victims can interact with each other).

Only very potent spells (such as Miracle or Wish) or similar effects can undo the mental crosswiring that this spell brings about.
