Pathfinder 1E You just got hit with Phantasmal Killer. What crazy hallucination do you see?

Lord of the Hidden Layer
That creepy doll ("Chucky") wearing Jason's mask ("Friday the 13th") with Freddie's ("Nightmare on Elm Street") blade/fingers, walking across the room saying something like "-Yourname-, come out and pla-a-a-y-y" ("The Warriors").

Falling out of a tree towards rocks or thorny brambles

A swarm of spiders (no Llolth) or ants or bees

Former romantic flame, winding up to reject -hero- for not being good enough - in whatever sense

Somebody who knows not what they are doing, nor the significance of this item, is about to open the Ark of the Covenant ("Raiders of the Lost Ark")
