Re: seeing through an image or illusion's eyes?

That is part of the argument, yes, but there's also RAW confusion because of the line somewhere where it says illusions behave as the wizard thinks the world exists, not as it actually is.

And also unclear about whether an illusion of an owl would see well in the dark if the wizard didn't have Dark Vision or Mage Sight cast on himself.

(I've run images and illusions in various ways over the years, and so wasn't sure about RAW or myself, and was curious what the consensus of this list would be.)

Hi all,
On page 137 of ITL it says that the wizard can see thru the 
eyes of an Illusion.  So I think the question is closed.

Or is the forum arguing that Illusions are too powerful and 
this ability should be nerfed?

Warm regards, Rick.
