A specific event, condition, or mental state has an adverse effect on the character. This Stimulus directly affects the character’s mind; any resulting physical damage is psychosomatic in nature. That is, any physical damage results are due to the character’s instinctive belief in those results. Examples include being physically bound, even if the character could normally snap the binding material; facing a foe covered in a specific color; or feeling extremely confused.
