Campaign Design - Spells: Distraction (Screamer)

Distraction (Screamer) (found in the Book of Roguish Luck)
Illusion (Phantasm)[Mind-Affecting]

Level: Gutter Mage 1
Components: V, S
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Medium (100 feet + 10 feet per caster level)
Target, Effect, or Area: One creature
Duration: 1 round per caster level
Saving Throw: Will negates
Spell Resistance: Yes

You create a mental image in someone's mind of something the target will find distracting - it is either annoying, alluring, or frightening. The target, not the caster, decides what form the phantasm takes. A failed save means the target takes no effective action for 1 round other than to defend herself. Instead, she interacts with the image in her mind - swatting at an imaginary fly, dodging an imaginary attack, starting in surprise at an imaginary loved one, and so on. A new saving throw is allowed each round, and once the target makes a successful save, the spell ends.
