Provoke sends thoughts of rage throughout an area that incites the local creatures. This effect potentially increases the generation rate for sentient creatures in the area. In "normal" (see saved posts) hunting grounds the base increase is +2.

The rate can be further increased by training in Mental Lore, Telepathy by an additional +1 per 15 ranks.

First person
You focus inward, drawing on all of your unrest and unsettled indignation.  Before you, a ball of blanched fire winks into existence.  You feed it your anger, your pettiness and your hate, watching it swell and grow.  Tendrils of white flame extend from the miniature sun, snaking out to lash the air.  Pouring the last, deepest remnants of your vitriol, you unleash the full power of your rage.  It spreads like an inferno, overtaking all in its path, battering them with the entirety of your darkest thoughts.
Third person
What ire, what vitriol unleashed!  Monk's provocation hangs palpably in the air, a ball of cold, blanched fire, before spreading like an inferno, overtaking all in its path.
Third person (not in the room)
Streaks of blanched fire lance the air, their white tendrils arcing.  Carried on the flames is a wave of anger and withering hostility, which touches everything, even what the blaze does not.
The sense of anger in the air, previously hanging like a vitriolic cloud, laced with blanched fire, fades and then disappears.
