You decide on what circumstances will reveal the true writing, and you also decide what the false writing is. Common choices for circumstances are as such: Script can only be read in normal moon light, can only be read on a full moon, the blood of a virgin or an innocent man must be dripped on the writing, a particular command word must be spoken, etc. You can affect a number of pages equal to your caster level.

At the end of the duration, both the true writing and the false writings become illegible, though you can re-cast the spell indefinitely.

The arcane focus for this spell are a special dual tipped writing pen (or quill), which is not consumed and a special ink of lemon juice and silver dust, about 30gp per page.
