[RPG] Can Minor Illusion be used to simulate speech


Such as generating a spoken sentence or series of sentences in a particular person's voice?

Best Answer


Since this is still the top answer, I'm going to update it in light of more recent information from WotC. As Derek Stucki points out below, Jeremy Crawford was asked on Twitter:

Is it RAI for Minor Illusion to duplicate complex sounds such as speech?

and he responded with a simple "Yes".

As far as how much can be said, Josh Clark points out that in the Out of the Abyss official adventure module, an NPC uses minor illusion to simulate two senteces (p. 171).
