Effect:

The dark dimension blade has two uses. First, upon activation, the blade reads, presents and amplifies a target’s greatest fears, but only the target is shown these fears, and they appear in the target’s mind as though she had arrived upon these thoughts idly. In this use it acts as an asset in intimidation checks in a social interaction. It does not need to be drawn in order to use it this way, but the hilt must be touched. As a second use,  it can be activated during an regular melee attack to make a separate intellect attack against the melee target at one step harder. This mental attack is available only if the first physical attack succeeds, whether or not the attack does a net amount of damage. If successful, the target is shaken next round, making all actions one step more difficult for the target. Depletion is calculated after use.
