Description: The Mental Blast spell sends a jolt of energy directly into the target's brain, often incapacitating the victim and possibly causing them to drop whatever they're holding. This approach to psychic combat is physically harmful, often leaving its victim with lasting brain damage.
Effect: Nerve damage, Stun, sleep, disarm. Single target.
Example Messaging: Stun:

You gesture at a sleazy lout.
A jolt of psychic energy discharges from your pattern and grounds into a sleazy lout's mind.
A sleazy lout drops its sturdy cudgel to clutch its head.
Roundtime: 2 sec.

Sleep:
You gesture at a sleazy lout.
A jolt of psychic energy discharges from your pattern and grounds into a sleazy lout's mind.
A sleazy lout collapses as if dead.
Roundtime: 2 sec.

Notes

  • Nerve damage stacks.
  • Nerve damage is based on success of the stat contest. Recasts will only do more nerve damage if you get a better success on the stat contest.
  • Higher success will cause sleep instead of stun. Sleep can be achieved with a single cast.
  • Causes target to drop whatever is in its hands. If a PC then the item will drop to their "at feet" slot.
