[Fri Aug 4 15:42:20 2017] [43859] Carmel: I don't think the level ranges for added effects are
quite accurate in the HELP PSIONIC BLAST file

To clarify the issue, what I meant by that is

Blast blinds at level 11-20, blinds and stuns (1 round) at level 31-40,
stuns (1 r.) and gives -5 to hit at level 41-40, and stuns and
paralyzes at level 50.


while it should be something like

Blast blinds at level 11-20, blinds and stuns (1 round) at level 21-40,
stuns (1 r.) and gives -5 to hit at level 41-50, and stuns and
paralyzes at level 50.


but the correct ranges must be looked up in code.

This is an edit to correct my previous post...

Psionic Blast is working pretty much as stated in the help files. Recall that the affects of blindness are to make the victim's hitroll and AC worse.

Here is what the help files should say (a change has been submitted for updating the help files):

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

"PSIONIC BLAST"

Usage : blast <target>
blast
Saves : (Level-1)/50 chance to save to negate effects
and reduce damage.
Damage : varies
Level : 1 Psi

Psionists can focus their mental powers on a victim and turn its brain
to jelly. The more powerful the Psionist, the more powerful the blast.
Once engaged in battle, just typing "blast" will auto-target the
Psionist's opponent.

Damage:
Level 1 2-4 5-7 8-10 11-20 21-30 31-40 41-49 50
Damage 1-4 2-10 3-12 4-16 20 35 70 100 150

Affects:
Levels 11-20: Blinds
Levels 21-30: Blinds and stuns
Levels 31-40: Stuns and lowers victim's hitroll by -5
Levels 41-49: Stuns and lowers victim's hitroll by -10
Level 50: Stuns and paralyzes

Saving:
Powerful opponents have a (level-1)/50 chance of saving vs. the blast.
For example, a level 50 victim has a 49/50 chance of saving while a
level 21 opponent has a 2/5 chance of saving.
If the victim saves, no blind, stun, or paralyze affects are applied
and damage drops to the next lower level.
