DESCRIPTION

You force the target to delay their action until after the next creature in the initiative order takes their action unless the target makes a successful Will save. You must manifest this power before the results of the creature’s actions are determined. This may result in the creature’s action being invalid, such as attacking a target that has moved, in which case the action is wasted. If the target was manifesting a power or casting a spell, they do not need to make a concentration check.

Augment: For every 3 additional power points you spend, the target’s action is delayed until after an additional creature in the initiative order.
