NEW SORCERY SPELL

Word of Chaos
Keywords: Area (Fixed), Obvious, Resisted (Will).
Full Cost: 61 points.
Casting Roll: Will.
Range: Self.
Duration: Instantaneous and 1 minute, see description.

The caster pronounces a word of chaos, and victims within 4 yards that can hear it must resist or begin to hallucinate (p. B429) for 1 minute. The caster can exclude any beings from this effect.
In addition, when this spell is cast, every lawful being within four yards immediately takes 1d crushing damage, regardless of DR, insubstantiality, etc. They will see this attack clearly (as an explosion of chaotic energy coming from within you), but non-lawful people will see nothing. This damage does not cause knockback. Note that this secondary effect works even if the word of chaos was not heard.
Statistics: Affliction 1 (Will; Area Effect, 4 yards, +100%; Based on Will, +20%; Emanation, -20%; Fixed Duration, +0%; Hallucinating, +50%; Hearing-Based, -20%; Malediction 2, +150%; No Signature, +20%; Reduced Duration, 1/3, -10%; Requires Magic Words, -10%; Selective Area, +20%; Sorcery,  -15%) [39] + Crushing Attack 1d (Accessibility, Lawful Creatures Only, -50%; Affects Insubstantial, +20%; Area Effect, 4 yards, +100%; Cosmic, Irresistible Attack, +300%; Emanation, -20%; Link, +10%; Low Signature, +10%; Magical, -10%; No Knockback, -10%; Requires Magic Words, -10%) [22].
