Description

This spell functions like Cause Fear (Spell), except that it causes one or two target creatures within 30 feet of each other to gain the Cringing condition, and suffer (Circle 1 damage): 1d4 points of damage per character level (max 5d4 at character level 5) of Psychic (energy, uncommon) damage. Creatures that succeed on the saving throw are instead Shaken for 1 round, and suffer only half damage.
