Shadow Evocation

6th-level Illusion

Casting Time: Special
Range: Special
Components: V, S
Duration: Special

This spell allows the user to cast any Evocation spell of 1st to 4th level. This invocation isn’t as real as a normal casting, the spell energy being substituted with shadowstuff, so the spells are considered of their base level when cast. E.g. a Fireball cast with Shadow Magic is cast as if a 3rd level spell slot were used.

All other factors involved with the spell are as they are listed above. Casting time, range, and duration are as the original spells, as are saving throws and damage. This spell can only duplicate damaging evocations: no rituals or non-attack effects.

At Higher Levels, When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 7th level or higher, you can duplicate more powerful evocations, a 7th level spell allows you to duplicate 5th level spells like Cone of Cold or Bigby’s Hand (but not Wall of Force or Wall of Stone, because those are damaging evocations), an 8th level spell slot allows 6th level spells and a 9th level slot allows 7th. You may also choose to use a spell slot of 7th level or higher to increase the level of the evocation spell being cast. A 7th level spell slot will produce a fireball cast as a 4th level spell.
Usable by: Sorcerer, Warlock, Wizard
