Death Throes

3rd-level enchantment (Ritual)

Casting Time: 1 action

Range: Touch

Components: V, S, M (dirt from a graveyard)

Duration: Concentration, up to 12 hours

You touch a willing target and make them invisible (for 1 minute) while an illusion of them appears to die. They convulse slightly, then their body becomes stiff and starts to cool. Creatures investigating the body must succeed on an Intelligence saving throw or be fooled by the illusion, even believing they can feel the illusory corpse. On a success, they can see through the illusion and the target creature is not invisible to them. Creatures with blindsight automatically succeed on the saving throw. The illusiory corpse lasts the duration of the spell.

The spell ends if the invisible creature speaks, makes any attacks, fails an ability check, or takes damage, while they are invisible.

When this spell is cast as a ritual, any checks to investigate the body are made with disadvantage.
