Psychosis

Type insanity; Save Will DC 20 Onset 3d6 days Effect character becomes chaotic evil; gains +10 competence bonus on Bluff checks to hide insanity

DESCRIPTION

This complex insanity fills the victim with hate for the world. He may suppress his psychosis for a period of 1 day by making a Will save against the DC of his insanity, otherwise he cannot help but plot and plan the death and destruction of his friends and enemies alike. For the most part, the impact of psychosis must be roleplayed, although not all players find entertainment in roleplaying a lunatic who’s trying to do in his friends. In such cases, the GM should assume control of the character whenever his psychosis is in control.
