Pathfinder 2 Modify Memory Spell

Other Game Systems: Starfinder Modify Memory Spell

Modify Memory


Traditions occult

Cast [2 Actions] somatic, verbal

Range 30 feet

Targets 1 creature

Saving Throw Will

Duration unlimited

You alter the target’s memories, either erasing a memory, enhancing a memory’s clarity, altering a memory, or adding a false memory. The target can attempt a Will save to resist the spell.

Critical Success The target is unaffected and realizes you tried to alter its memory.

Success The target is unaffected but thinks your spell was something harmless instead of modify memory, unless it identifies the spell.

Failure During the first 5 minutes of the spell’s duration, you can Sustain the Spell to modify a memory once each round. When you do, you imagine up to 6 seconds of memory to modify, to a maximum of 5 continuous minutes of memory.

Any memories you’ve altered remain changed as long as the spell is active. If the target moves out of range before the 5 minutes is up, you can’t alter any further memories.

Heightened (6th) You can cast the spell on a willing target to suppress all memory of a particular topic, detailed in 50 words or fewer. The effect is permanent, and it patches these omissions with an indistinct haze.
