Rank 1: You gain the Cause Fear mental action, which can make those who come near be terrified of you. The effect lasts for the rest of the scene, unless ended sooner with another mental action. While it lasts anyone (friend or foe) who begins or moves within 20 feet of you must immediately make an Earth (Will) test against a threshold of 3, +1 per rank in this power. Those who pass are immune to the effect for the rest of the scene. Those who fail suffer a -1 penalty on all tests and checks until the end of the scene, or until you end the effect, whichever comes first. At the DM’s discretion certain beings, such as robots or mindless undead, may be immune to the effect.
Rank 2: The range of your Cause Fear effect extends to 50 feet.
Rank 3: The penalty your Cause Fear effect causes increases to -2.
Rank 4: The range of your Cause Fear effect extends to 100 feet
Rank 5: The penalty your Cause Fear effect causes increases to -3. You now no longer need to use a mental action to Cause Fear but can instead start or end the effect for free on any of your turns (or at any time outside of combat).
