DESCRIPTION

You overwhelm the senses of creatures in the area, rendering them unable focus. All creatures that fail their saving throws are staggered for 1 round per caster level. A creature that makes its saving throw is staggered for only 1 round and can act normally thereafter.

Overload: For every runic charge overloaded into this script, the script is more overwhelming. With one runic charge, targets are dazed for the first round on a failed saving throw. With two runic charges, the targets are instead stunned for the first round on a failed saving throw, and dazed for 1 round on a successful save. With three runic charges, targets are stunned for 1 round then staggered and sickened for the remaining duration on a failed saving throw, and dazed for 1 round on a successful save. With four runic charges, the targets are paralyzed for 1 round then staggered and sickened for the remaining duration on a failed saving throw, and stunned for 1 round on a successful save. These effects are not cumulative; only the effects for a given number of runic charges applies.
