New Spell: Phobia


Control Manipulations

This spell is somewhat related to the Control Emotion spell. It manipulates
the target's mind, implanting some form of irrational fear. This fear
(phobia) is usually based upon the target's current circumstances (ie. if
the target is climbing a wall, he will likely suffer from a fear of high
places). The GM is the final arbiter of what the phobia is.

The target makes a standard Magic Resistance Test, and if he fails, he
suffers the effects of the spell. To determine the effects, subtract the
number of successes that the target received, from the number of successes
that the caster received. The difference determines the effect.

Caster - Target Effect
1 success +2 to all TN; target will attempt
to avoid object of phobia
2-3 successes +4 to all TN; target will attempt
to avoid object of phobia; if
target cannot, make a Will (4)
Test, or target will run from
object of phobia, or cower in fear
4+ successes +8 to all TN; target will run
away, or cower in fear; no actions
may be taken unless the target
makes a Will (8) Test

Type: Mana Range: LOS Target: Willpower (R)
Duration: Sustained Drain: [(F / 2) + 3]S
