Scare Tactics detail.png

Scare Tactics is a book used to unlock the Shock, Horror, Demoralise, and Rout abilities. Upon reading the book, all four abilities are unlocked at once.

When a player reads the book, the dialogue box will appear after a confirmation prompt with the message You cannot understand the words, but as the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, your very being is filled with an inexplicable creeping dread. For the first time in your life, you feel as if you truly know fear. You have unlocked the Shock (basic) and Horror (threshold) Magic abilities, and the Demoralise (basic) and Rout (threshold) Ranged abilities.

Attempting to read the book after the abilities unlock, the dialogue box will instead read You have already unlocked the Shock, Horror, Demoralize and Rout abilities. Perhaps you can pass your newfound understanding of fear on to others.
