Telepathy [death, mind-affecting]
You induce a mental death spiral in a creature that possesses intelligence, killing it instantly.
For each successive round beyond the first that you continue to concentrate and pay an additional 5 power points, you eradicate one additional creature’s subconscious complex, killing it. You can target a new creature each round during which you maintain unbroken concentration and pay additional power points, even if one of the previous targets makes its saving throw. On successive rounds you can target again a creature who made its saving throw. Each time you target the same creature on a subsequent round and pay an additional 5 power points, the creature receives a cumulative –2 circumstance penalty to its saving throw. Thus, if the same creature is targeted for 3 rounds, its saving throw on the third round is assessed a –4 circumstance penalty. If you shift to a new creature on a subsequent round (as you would do if the previous creature succumbed), saving throw penalties start again at zero.
