This article is about the condition. For the person, see Projection (person).
Projections are translucent echoes of NPCs. They usually appear when a character who wields magic would like to send a message. The Projection of Vanus Galerion is a projection that serves such a purpose. Some projections, such as the Shadow of Seeks-the-Night, can allow whoever controls them to see everything the projection sees, and have their master speak through them to someone on the scene.
