Target, Effect, or Area: One living creature
Duration: Instantaneous
Saving Throw: Will disbelief
Spell Resistance: Yes

This spell subjects the target to phantasmal images drawn from its latent or suppressed fears. The fears within the target's subconscious mind are transformed into terrifying and frightful images that its conscious mind can visualize. The target experiences a horde of phantasmal images swirling around its body, tearing and clawing at it. the target may make a Will save to disbelieve the phantasmal images, otherwise the target suffers 2d6 points of damage from the fear effect and is shaken. A shaken creature receives a -2 penalty to all attack rolls, weapon damage rolls, and saving throws.

If the target of an awakened fears spell succeeds in disbelieving the images and is wearing a helm of telepathy, the phantasmal images can be turned upon the caster. The caster must then disbelieve or suffer 1d6 points of damage from the fear effect.
