put[s the target] into a cataleptic state that is indistinguishable from death.
For that purpose,
the target is blinded and incapacitated, and its speed drops to 0.
However, the spell Lesser Restoration can end a number of conditions on a target, including the blinded condition. Similarly, the spell Freedom of Movement prevents "spells and other magical effects" from "reduc[ing] the target's speed".
Now, I'm wondering how these two spells interact with Feign Death. Does one benefit/suffer from the remaining effects? I.e.:
- "a cataleptic state that is indistinguishable from death"
- "the target appears dead to all outward inspection and to spells used to determine the target’s status"
- "The target is […] incapacitated, […]
- "The target has resistance to all damage except psychic damage. If the target is diseased or poisoned when you cast the spell, or becomes diseased or poisoned while under the spell’s effect, the disease and poison have no effect until the spell ends."
Effectively, you would appear to others as if you were a corpse, but you can still walk and look around if you so desire (although you can't take actions of any kind). This "ability" could allow for interesting infiltration attempts, etc.
Either way, this doesn't quite seem like it's the intent of the spell – but, as far as I can tell, this is what would happen according to RAW.
Is my reading correct? If it is, has anyone encountered players attempting to abuse this combination and if so, how did you handle it?
