Phantasmal Killer

Casting Time
One creature
Concentration ( 1 minute )
Saving Throw
Wisdom (special)

You create an illusion that invokes the target’s deepest fears. Only the target can see this illusion. When the spell is cast and at the end of each of its turns, the target makes a Wisdom saving throw or takes 4d10 psychic damage and becomes frightened . The spell ends early when the target succeeds on its saving throw. A target that succeeds on its initial saving throw takes half damage.

Cast at Higher Levels

The damage increases by 1d10 for each slot level above the 4th.

Rare Versions

Aurana’s Creeping Phantasmal Killer. When a target succeeds on its saving throw you may choose a new target for the spell. That target must make its own saving throw, and on a failure the spell continues without the expenditure of an additional spell slot, using the same duration.

Aurana’s Draining Phantasmal Killer. When a target is damaged by this spell, you regain a number of hit points equal to half the damage dealt.
