Concentration is important for the Awakened — spells require concentration to maintain, and much of their learning comes from extended periods of concentrated study. Astral travel requires deep concentration in the form of meditation. This spell makes a mind restless, incapable of concentrating on one thing for more than an instant.

Mechanics: Targets affected by this spell subtract 1 die from all rolls requiring concentration per success on the spell roll. Examples include research, prolonged concealment or deception or meditation.

In addition, the target must roll (Wits + Composure) to successfully perform tasks that require concentration but do not normally call for rolls, such as studying to increase a Skill or patiently aiming a sniper rifle.

In Astral Space, this spell is a good way to make it harder for a person to follow you up or down through the strata, or to handicap them when it comes to reaching the astral in the first place, as it can make it treacherously difficult to finish the meditation required.

(tl;dr - spell could be called "inflict AD(H)D")
