Initially developed by the West but quickly copied by the URRS, Transpathic Pulse Protocols are used as countermeasures for transpathic battlefield communications by releasing intense bursts of focussed thought waves. These cause temporary disruption in transpathic networks and may even induce harmful feedback in their participants.

All creatures currently benefiting from any protocol with the word “transpathic” in its name (including creatures able to trigger explosives rigged with Transpathic Detonators) as well as any sorceresses currently kasting or concentrating on any such protocol within the area of effect of the TPP are nauseated for 1d4 rounds and take 1d2 points of Intelligence, Wisdom and Charisma damage each. A successfull Will save reduces the duration of the nausea by half and negates the ability damage.

Overkast: The DC of the Will save is increased by +2 per grade.
