Fear Aura

You're really scary.

Fear Aura is the signature mutation of dreadroots.

Creatures with this mutation have a 25% chance each turn to emit an aura of fear. After the aura is emitted, this mutation goes on cooldown for 20+1d621-26 (Avg: 23.5) turns. The aura has a strength of 1d8+45-12 (Avg: 8.5) and is rolled against the target's mental armor. If the roll succeeds, the target becomes terrified for 1d31-3 (Avg: 2) turns.[1]
