[RPG] Does Disguise Self make parts of you invisible


Part of the disguise self spell says:

If you use this spell to appear thinner than you are, the hand of someone who reaches out to touch you would bump into you while it was seemingly still in midair.

This means that, obviously, that part of you is not visible to the observer. However, does it mean that it is invisible? For example, if a human-sized creature with a tail disguised itself as human, would the tail become invisible?

Best Answer

The tail, just as the example of becoming thinner, would no longer be visible. But since you put emphasis on invisible it should be noted that in Dungeons and Dragons 5e, invisible is not exactly equivalent to not being visible. It is a specific game term with specific game consequences. It is a condition.

- An invisible creature is impossible to see without the aid of magic or a special sense. For the purpose of hiding, the creature is heavily obscured. The creature's location can be detected by any noise it makes or any tracks it leaves.
- Attack rolls against the creature have disadvantage, and the creature's attack rolls have advantage.

Nothing in the spell "Disguise Self" gives the condition invisible. So RAW you are not treated as such.
