Eye Fatigue

Here is another installment of exTRAPaganza, our Thursday over-the-top trap series. 

Every time the target asks a question, they must make a DC 25 CL check (use +0 for bonus if the target is not a caster). Whatever answer is given doesn’t matter, they will hear a detailed answer on a success, or not hear an answer at all on a failure. Also, they will be fatigued after, no matter the result, which does not stack. This lasts for as long as it is still amusing.
