Cause Fear
Ultima VII Part Two
Words of Power: QUAS WIS
Reagents: GA, MR, NS
Circle: 6th

Some mages are irritated by the assault of weaker foes and just want to be free of the distraction. If the Mass Sleep spell is not available, then mages usually use this spell. Casting it, all the foes will suddenly feel a terrible fear and flee from the caster. Only very powerful beings can withstand this effect.

It is also used by the virtuous to avoid battle against non-evil creatures.


Illusion is a dangerous tool, and In Quas Corp creates a powerful illusion. Suddenly, in the eyes of all creatures not intelligent enough to recognize the illusion, each party member may be made to appear as a twelve-foot giant, with a sword like a guillotine and a staff like a tree trunk. Fear strikes foes to the cores of their beings. They shriek and flee. In Quas Corp is expensive. The dust that must fill the atmosphere as the spell is cast contains both mandrake root and hallucinatory nightshade. Simple garlic adds to the distastefulness of the experience for the foe.

- from Book of Lore (Ultima V)

Trivia Edit
