Horrific Doubles

4th-level necromancy

Casting Time: 1 action

Range: Self

Components: V, S

Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute

Classes: bard, sorcerer, wizard

You create several illusory doubles of yourself, where you and each image all seem slightly off or wrong in appearance. Treat this spell as mirror image, except as noted.

Each creature that can see the doubles must succeed at a Wisdom save or become frightened for as long as it can see any of the doubles. A successful saving throw negates the frightened condition and renders the creature immune to the further effects of this spell (beyond the usual effects of mirror image).

In addition, the first time a creature that failed its initial saving throw destroys one of the images, it must succeed at a Wisdom save or its perception of the double shifts at the last second. The double takes on the face of the attacker, the face of a loved one, or some other equally disturbing image, causing the attacker to become frightened and has disadvantage on attack rolls and saving throws until the end of its next round from the traumatic shock.

If your campaign uses the Sanity ability score, use this saving throw instead of Wisdom.
