Level: 1 Component Cost: 10
Category: Deception Market Price: 25
Time: 10 minutes Key Skill: Arcana
Duration: Permanent

You can capture the image of the site where you are standing and bind it into a crystal. Anyone peering into the crystal can see a tiny version of the image, a by using this ritual on a capture-image crystal, you can create a full-scale image. An image recreated by this ritual is true in detail, but slightly transparent and obviously an illusion, fooling nobody but useful for conveying information. You can also use an image crystal with the Mirage Arcana ritual or similar magic to recreate the scene more believably. The size of the scene you can capture or recreate depends on the Arcana check:

Arcana Check Result Area
9 or lower Burst 2
10-19 Burst 5
20-29 Burst 10
30-39 Burst 20
40 or higher Burst 40
