Hallucinatory forest was an illusion spell that made a large area appear to be a real forest permanently. The reverse of this spell, revealed wood, removed this illusion.[1][2][5]


A druid could turn an area the size of a 40 ft (12.2 m) square per level of experience into an illusory forest that looked, smelled, sounded, and felt just like the real thing. Other druids and intelligent forest-dwelling creatures (centaurs, dryads, green dragons, nymphs, satyrs, treants, etc.) could recognize the illusion, but unless a creature had an affinity with woodlands, they believed the phantasm unquestioningly and acted accordingly.[1][2][5]

The reverse of this spell exactly countered hallucinatory forest. It could also be dispelled.[1][2][5]


Only verbal and somatic components were required to cast this spell.[1][2] Some druids required mistletoe as their material component.[5]
