Silence (Realistic, Single-Sense, Area)
Type: P • Range: LOS (A) • Duration: S • DV: (F ÷ 2) + 3
These spells create an area that damps sound. Sonic attacks into or out
of the field, as well as critter powers using a sonic medium (such as
Paralyzing Howl), are reduced by –1 per hit on the Spellcasting Test.
Anyone attempting to hear a sound from within or across the silenced
area must successfully resist the spell.
Hush is a mana spell and so only affects living beings and magic
sonic attacks. Silence affects technological devices and is useful for
jamming alarms, detection devices, sonar, and tactical communications,
as well as technological sonic weapons.
