Bottled Spirits

The renowned alchemist Sazakara was fascinated with the nature of the human soul. He spent his entire life trying to reduce the spirit down to its fundamental mystical and chemical components. This potion is merely one of the fruits of his strange research. A potion of bottled spirits is a mystical simulacrum of another person’s spirit.

Drinking the potion has the same effect as a Misdirection spell; for three hours after drinking the potion, any spell that reads your aura (discern lies, scrying, locate creature, detect magical residue, etc.) will instead pick up the false reading. A potion is based on the aura of a specific individual, who must be on hand when the potion is created. It should be noted that it is a “snapshot” of the subject’s aura, not an actual redirection. In other words, someone using locate creature to find the person whose aura was used for the potion may instead track you down, which could result in an interesting situation. The potion does not offer any sort of protection against discern lies, painful truth, or zone of truth.
