Description

You recite aloud the facts and figures of the means of construction of a mind. As you do so, the fell magic reaches into the world and gathers fictive energy, to do the opposite of what you proclaim. As your discourse reaches its end, a faint, wavering ray of lies and distortions and heat-shimmers springs from your pointing finger and wobbles uncertainly toward your chosen target.
If the ray attack hits, the targets very concept of 'self', the simple bedrock belief that they exist and possess agency, is assaulted on the most direct level. They suffer (Circle 7 damage): 1d6+2 points of damage per character level (max 20d6+40 at character level 20) of fictive (energy, uncommon) damage as your ray of lies seeks to un-do their very fabric of belief that keeps them real. As part of this assault, they suffer the cloistered condition, as they literally begin to fade from existence.
