Description: This spell causes the target to be unsure of its next actions. Something won't seem just right, the target's footing may seem to be off, the target may need to take a split second to adjust the grip on a weapon, or change the angle of their attack. The target must make a resistance roll against the spell or be placed last in the order of initiative for the combat round.
