You close off the centers of the subject’s mind that deal with communication and social interaction. The subject effectively loses knowledge of all languages (including telepathic and body language) and is treated as illiterate for the duration of the power. He may still “speak” and provide verbal components, and to him they sound completely normal, but to anyone else they appear as complete gibberish. The subject is unable to understand anyone else on any level – this prevents things such as Sense Motive, the Aid Another action (or beneﬁts from another’s Aid Another), any skill check involving communication (including Forgery), identifying a spell or power being cast or in use, or knowing if a magical effect used on him is harmless or not until it hits him (thus, he attempts a save against all effects he could). The subject still knows friend from foe, and does understand if his attacks or powers are successful.
Augment: For every additional power point you spend, this power may affect an additional target. No two targets may be further than 15 feet apart. For every 2 power points spent this way, increase the save DC by 1.
