Blink gives the caster a chance to avoid physical or bolt attacks that would otherwise hit caster. Its function is similar to Fasthr's Reward (115) but works on AS/DS instead of CS/TD attacks.

The target has a chance of getting a second opportunity to avoid physical or bolt attacks that otherwise would have hit him by teleporting a short distance away (within the same room). The percent chance to get a second attack roll is 25 + seed 1 of ranks in Mental Lore, Transference.

Duration

The Blink spell dissipates on a successful avoidance.

Blink has a stackable duration of 1200 + 60 sec per Minor Mental rank when self-cast. It has a two minute refreshable duration when cast on others.

Messaging

Initial Cast

>pre 1215
You fold your hands and deeply intone a sonorous mantra, focusing your mind upon the Blink spell...
Your spell is ready.
>cast
You gesture.
A momentary eruption of starlit darkness engulfs you.  As the shadow thins, double images of the world sway dizzyingly around you before regaining solidity.

Successful Avoidance with Dissipation - First Person View

Your head rings like a struck bell as darkness explodes across your field of vision.  You find yourself moved several feet from your original position!
  AS: +255 vs DS: +249 with AvD: +17 + d100 roll: +19 = +42
  A clean miss.
Darkness punctuated by a constellation of starry pinpoints wells up to the surface of your skin and splinters away with a sound like shattering crystal.

Successful Avoidance with Dissipation - Third Person View

Suddenly, starlit darkness engulfs <Monk> and he vanishes, reappearing several feet away instantaneously!
  AS: +255 vs DS: +199 with AvD: +17 + d100 roll: +17 = +90
  A clean miss.
Darkness punctuated by a constellation of starry pinpoints wells up around <Monk> and splinters away with a sound like shattering crystal.
