Using Sleep Field spell creates a magical sleep field that will cause everyone that comes too close to it to fall asleep. However, its use is rather limited. If not cast on a narrow path, the caster's foes can simply walk around it. It is also important to note that the field dispells itself after several creatures walk into it.

The spells Sleep and Mass Sleep are similar spells, but targeted directly at the caster's enemies.

Note that Energy Field was originally an umbrella term for all the types of magical fields: Poison Field, Fire Field, Sleep Field and Lightning Field, and the same spell would be used to create any of them. Later (after Ultima IV), different spells were designed for each of the fields, and the previous Lightning Field came to be known simply as Energy Field. However, at times the four spells are still called "energy field spells".

Lore[edit]

Sleep field
There are four types of Energy Fields known to the practitioner of the mystic arts: Sleep, Poison, Fire, and Lightning. Their effects are varied, but the magic used to erect them is the same in each instance. Any person attempting to pass through an Energy Field will run the risk of either falling asleep or being poisoned in the case of the first two types; if the field is of Fire then their flesh shall burn as they pass through and they shall feel much pain and anguish; while the field composed of Lightning is impenetrable. The casting of Energy Fields is not difficult and requires only a small exertion on the part of the spellcaster, but the fields are only effective in enclosed areas such as subterranean passages and inside of rooms. The reagents necessary in the casting of these Energy Fields are Sulphurous Ash for the burst of creation, Spider Silk for the binding of forces to a single spot, and Black Pearl for the launching of the spell to a spot away from he who works the magic. It would be a grave error indeed to cast such a spell without the latter component for you would find yourself in the midst of the field!
Least damaging of the three energy field spells, In Zu Grav is often the most effective. The spell cloaks a foe in purple haze that puts it instantly to sleep, taking it out of the fight, rendering it helpless. Like the other two similar spells, In Zu Grav can affect friends as easily as enemies. While sleep will not directly harm friends, falling asleep on the field of battle can be deadly. In Zu Grav is easily mixed of common ginseng, spider silk and black pearl. For best results, add the air of many yawns and sand from sleepy eyes.
Creates a wall of sleep-inducing energy.
This spell creates a thick wall of energy field where the mage desires. All who enter this energy field will fall asleep.
