Those two above are repeated in the NPC check and at the end of the
function. Well.. seems I've mistaken. You put illusion right after
blindness. That is fine. What you fail to have done is go to the end of the
function and put it there as well. In stock circle, players don't seem to be
able to be seen as blinded and groping. Just add the blindness and illusion
at the end and you're set.
