While this is one of the easiest teleportation spells to cast, it's also among the most dangerous. Anyone fool enough to dawdle inside the mirror (as inexperienced companions often do, without realizing the danger) will have to deal with a mirror duplicate of themselves.

These mirror duplicates follow the guidelines given in the Evil Twin section of Enemies (see p. B135). Their main desire is to escape the mirror in place of the real person.

Mirror duplicates that have escaped bear the Supernatural Feature (Living Reflection) Disadvantage for -10 points. The real person (trapped in the mirror) will typically be seen banging on the reflective surface, silently screaming, every time the duplicate would normally be reflected. This lasts until the real one dies (usually of hunger or thirst). This Disadvantage is then replaced by Supernatural Feature (No Reflection).

As long as the original is still alive, they can be retrieved by returning the duplicate via a second casting of this spell (or any similar effect). However, this will require another fight between the two to escape.

Everyone appears to have reversed features when looking through a mirror to the other side, but it's merely an optical illusion. In actuality, every duplicate looks exactly like the original.
