Foe's Shade

Illusion (Shadow)
Level: Darkness 8, Sorcerer / Wizard 8
Components: V, S
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Short (25 ft + 5 ft / 2 levels)
Effect: One quasi-real illusionary foe shade
Duration: 1 rd. / 3 levels
Saving Throw: Will disbelief (if interacted with); varies; see text
Spell Resistance: Yes

You use material from the Plane of Shadow to shape quasi-real illusionary copy of your opponent. This shadow foe then attempts to slay the creature that it is a copy of, acting immediately much like a summoned monster.

The foe is actually one-half (50%) as strong as the original creature, though creatures who believe the shadow conjurations to be real are affected by them at full strength.

Any creature that interacts with the foe can make a Will save to recognize its true nature.

A foe's shade has one-half the hit points of it's original at the time of creation. It deals normal damage and has identical abilities and weaknesses to the creature it is a copy of at the time of casting, including prepared spells and equipment. Against a creature that recognizes it as a shadow creature, however, the foe shade’s damage is one-half (50%) normal, and all special abilities that do not deal damage are only 50% likely to work. (Roll for each use and each affected character separately.) Furthermore, the shadow creature’s AC bonuses are one-half as large.

A creature that succeeds on its save sees the foe shade as a transparent image superimposed on a vague, shadowy form.

Objects automatically succeed on their Will saves against this spell.

Creatures who's spell resistance is not overcome can not be affected by the foe shade.
