Haunted Ruin

4th-level illusion

Classes: bard, cleric, sorcerer, wizard

Casting Time: 1 action

Range: 60 feet

Components: V, S

Duration: 1 hour

You shroud your stronghold in a macabre illusion, causing it to appear as a grisly abattoir, a place of despair and massacre. Illusory bloodstains are everywhere, as are hacked remains, broken weapons, scorch marks, and eerie noises like scratching scavengers, moving shadows, and distant, bloodcurdling wails and moans.

The distraction caused by the haunted ruin causes enemies to gain disadvantage on Perception and Survival checks unless they successfully disbelieve the illusion. In addition, creatures spending more than 1 minute within the haunted ruin must succeed on a Wisdom saving throw once per minute or become frightened as long they remain within it and for 1d4 rounds thereafter.
