Minor Illusion

You use one of your many simple illusion spells. These don't require magical words of power, and may appear to onlookers as simple sleight of hand, but your magic allows you to perform even greater feats.

Action - 5 ft. Cube (30 ft.) - Cantrip (Illusion) - VS - 1 Minute

Utility Spell

You create an illusory* sound or an image of an object within range that lasts for the duration. The illusion ends if you cast this spell again.

  • If you create a sound, its volume can range from a whisper to a scream. It can be your voice, someone else's voice, a lion's roar, a beating of drums, or any other sound you choose. The sound continues unabated throughout the duration, or you can make discrete sounds at different times before the spell ends.

  • If you create an image of an object—such as a chair, muddy footprints, or a small chest—it must be no larger than a 5-foot cube. The image can't create sound, light, smell, or any other sensory effect. Physical interaction with the image reveals it to be an illusion, because things can pass through it.

*When an illusion is created, the caster rolls an illusion check. Roll an ability check with your spellcasting ability, adding your proficiency bonus. Any creature with a passive perception lower than the illusion check total sees the illusion as being real. The caster, as well as any creature that has higher passive perception than the illusion total or comes into physical contact with the illusion, disbelieves the illusion, and the illusion appears faint and translucent to them.

If one creature sees through the illusion and tells other creatures, the other creatures can attempt a perception check using the search action with a DC equal to the illusionist's spell save DC or touch the illusion to disbelieve the illusion.
