Believing your own illusions 
23rd-Oct-2006 10:34 am
Any of you guys Star Trek fans? In one TNG episode, Lt. Barclay goes to the Holodeck and livs in his fantasies - seducing Counselor Troi, sucker punching Commander Riker, being smarter than Geordi, etc.

Could someone do that in the D&D universe? Not necessarily create entire environments, but maybe a person or two to interact with. I have a very lonely sorceress in my campaign, and, well, she was wondering if she could use an illusion for more than just fooling the baddies. (Yeah, she could go get a boyfriend, but this is more fun. :D) How powerful a spell would she need to use? Would Major Image suffice, or would you want to use a persistent image or programmed image? Obviously, if this is something for amusement's sake, lower level is better.

Woooo Hoooo new spell time.

Ok simply put, this is a place for a new spell. Give them a Programmed image 1 level higher (since I don't have thebook in front of me) stating that they can have a "Hologram" like quality. A Sentient illusion who can act and react to people. In the end the mage can give it any personality and leave it up to the DM to run it. It will have a bonus to the saving throw but in the end have no substance. To create substance I would make it 2 level higher then Programmed Illusion. Might even make it a summons school.

thats my .02
