Design revelation (thought) [mind-affecting]; Level 6

CASTING

Casting Time 1 standard action

EFFECT

Range medium (100 ft. + 10 ft./level)
Effect 20-ft.-radius emanation, centered on a point in space
Duration 1 min./level and 1d6 rounds, see text
Saving Throw Will partial; Spell Resistance yes

DESCRIPTION

A shimmering, purple energy crackles and fills the area, weakening the mental resistance of those caught in it. Creatures in the area of weaken willpower take a -8 penalty on Wisdom checks and Will saves. Affected creatures take the penalty as long as they remain in the energy and for 1d6 rounds thereafter. A successful save reduces the penalty to -4 and the duration to 1 round. A creature that saves does not need to make further saves, even if it remains in the area of weaken willpower.

The emanation is stationary and lasts for 1 minute per level. While the energy gives the area a purplish hue, it does not significantly hamper vision.

Overload: For every runic charge overloaded into this script, the duration of the emanation increases by 5 minutes. In addition, for every two charges used, the penalty to ability checks also applies to either Intelligence or Charisma checks, using the rules for Wisdom checks. A single save reduces all of the penalties.
