Example Messaging: 3rd person:

<Necromancer> gestures at you.
Your vision fails you, filled with brief, primal visions of writhing, undescribable horrors. As your brain struggles with their defiance of reality, you are left petrified with only the certainty that what you saw should never have been glimpsed.
You manage to repress the horror and impossibility of what you have glimpsed, allowing yourself to move again.

You gesture at <target>.
You whisper several words of arcane power, attempting to twist <target>'s mind with primal terror. Your malefic assault overtakes <target>, petrifying him to the spot!
