Example Messaging:
You begin to feel slightly outside of yourself as you adopt a forced paranoia. You tell yourself that everyone is out to get you.
You are already about as paranoid as anyone could hope to be! You're pretty sure you can keep this hyper-sensitivity up for roughly 2 roisaen.

Speculate Finesse

Example Messaging:
