This spell conjures a mist that causes fear in those wrapped in its misty tendrils. The magician wraps his arms about him as if cold, then points to where the fog will appear and makes a Spellcasting (6) Test. If successful, a luminous, wispy-gray, and slightly cold fog coalesces into a 2-yard (1-hex) radius sphere around the position. Once conjured, the fog cannot move. The magician’s Effect Test is compared against the Spell Defense of each character — friend or foe — within the fog. If successful, the target flees away from the cloud at his fastest Movement Rate. Each round, an affected target may make a Willpower Test against the Effect Step. If successful, he throws off his fear, otherwise he continues to flee. Once out of sight of the fog, the target may act normally. However, if he sees the mist again he will react in fear until he makes a successful Willpower Test or the spell ends. Under no circumstances will an affected target voluntarily enter the cloud.
