Phantasmal Killer
Illusion (Phantasm) [Fear] [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will disbelief, then Fortitude partial; see text - Yes Madness 6, Sor/Wiz 4 V, S
Instant Medium General
Target: One living creature

Fearsome illusion kills subject or deals 3d6 damage.

You create a phantasmal image of the most fearsome creature imaginable to the subject simply by forming the fears of the subject's subconscious mind into something that its conscious mind can visualize: this most horrible beast. Only the spell's subject can see the phantasmal killer . You see only a vague shape. The target first gets a Will save to recognize the image as unreal. If that save fails, the phantasm touches the subject, and the subject must succeed on a Fortitude save or die from fear. Even if the Fortitude save is successful, the subject takes 3d6 points of damage.

If the subject of a phantasmal killer attack succeeds in disbelieving and possesses telepathy or is wearing a helm of telepathy, the beast can be turned upon you. You must then disbelieve it or become subject to its deadly fear attack.
