There was a spell I remember someone making for AD&D/2E called Illusion to Flesh and, of course, its opposite. The spell was pretty much how it sounds, it took an illusion and made it real, living person, item, etc. The opposite was just rude, made me shudder everytime I thought of it (still does... ICK!)
The reason why I brought this up is because I read an old adventure for original 3E days published by AEG called The Illusionist's daughter, it was one of those little pamphlet adventures. Anyway, in the adventure it turns out that the daughter is actually an illusion and she has been dead for at least 2 years and I thought what would be a great way to really bring them back to life. Then I remembered Illusion to Flesh.
Obviously, this is a huge level spell. I am even thinking epic in its deity style creationist power. But I would LOVE thoughts on it to see where exactly this spell would fall into OR if they published a spell like it that I haven't seen yet (still picking through Spell Compendium, if it is in there, I haven't seen it yet).
Thanks everyone for the help and being so tolerant of my debates!
