DESCRIPTION

This runic script forces a target out of the natural flow of time, effectively making it stop existing for a brief moment. The target must make a Will save or vanish completely for one round per two caster levels. No magic or divinations can detect the target during this time, as it exists outside of time and space—in effect, the target ceases to exist for the duration of this script. At the end of the duration, the target reappears unharmed in the space it last occupied (or the nearest possible space, if the original space is now occupied). A target that makes its saving throw reduces the duration to only 1 round.

This script cannot target artifacts or similarly unique items, nor a deity or similarly powerful being.

Overload: For every runic charge overloaded into this script, the duration increases by 1 round (it still only lasts for 1 round on a successful saving throw). If at least four runic charges are used, you can target two creatures or objects. The targets cannot be more than 30 feet apart.
