Elven spells (Mage of the Mirror) Edit

Deep Sleep

This spell may be cast on any monster within your line of sight, as long as the monster has from 1 to 3 Mind Points. The monster falls asleep immediately. It stays asleep until Zargon's next turn. The monster cannot defend against a Hero's attack while it is asleep.

Disappear

This spell may be cast on the spellcaster or on any one Hero he chooses. The Hero moves unseen as long as he rolls an 8 or lower on his movement dice. If a 9, 10, 11, or 12 is rolled, the spell ends. The Hero can only move and open doors. He cannot attack, search, disarm, Cast spells, spring traps, or be affected by attacks or spells, unless he chooses to cancel the spell.
