The Dread Powers
The powers of the Void
To break realityThe term dread power can refer to an Arcane Talent of any particular genre or method. Dread powers are often frowned upon by most in society. While not illegal, it is an unwritten rule to never use them even in dire circumstances. The reason for this is to do to the nature of dread powers themselves. Dread powers are Arcane abilities that are less designed for accomplishing a purpose and more so designed with malicious intent. In other words, a dread power is not a ball of fire designed to kill, but rather a ball of fire that is designed to cause the maximum amount of pain with the least amount of damage. Instead of burning skin a ball of flame we'll burn the nerve endings little by little. Another example is using elements of telepathic powers to implant inescapable nightmares, to alter perceptions and inhibit rational thinking, or using these elements to cause a perception of extreme pain or negative emotion. These telepathic abilities are often used for torture.
Long story short any ability that is designed to cause maximum suffering without alleviation is considered a dread power. These are not the only dread Powers, however.
