As an example Visions of Death:
Is it a Standard Action?This spell calls upon the spirit world to present a per-
sonal horror show to a character. The magician makes a
Spellcasting Test against the target’s Spell Defense. If success-
ful, the target sees a detailed vision of his own death, the exact
method decided by the magician. While watching the vision
unfold, the target knows he is not dying, but the fear and horror
has a mesmerizing effect, preventing him from moving or acting.
Each round, the target may make a Willpower Test against the
magician’s Willpower Step. If successful, he shakes off his fear
and the spell ends.
