Frightened

Status Effect

If even looking at the creature, place, or thing in front of you gives you cold sweats, nausea, and weak knees, congratulations; you're Frightened.

 

This effect is more like a general feeling mixed with a mortal beings sense of self-preservation. Because of its base in animalistic instinct, some creatures may be prone to it and others might be exempt from it entirely. It can also be easily exploited and weaponized in the right circumstances.

 

Game Effects

  • A frightened creature has disadvantage on ability checks and attack rolls while the source of its fear is within line of sight.
  • The creature can't willingly move closer to the source of its fear

Causes

Sense of self preservation, deep trauma, or even irrational phobia

 

Cycle

Because of the dependency on mortal biology and their individual minds, this effect can be Short Term, Congenital, Chronic, or a combination of more than one cycle.
