Regarding the limitation on this psychogenic;
Is the intent for cumulative casting?
A unit can only be affected once?
A unit suffers the effect, completes their activation, and this unit cannot have this cast on them until some later point in the game?
I know what consecutive, concurrent and cumulative mean, but I don't understand how this limitation is applied.
"May not be cast consecutively", means that it cannot be cast in a consecutive turn. Otherwise you would be able to Root a unit for the whole game. :wink:
And yes a Unit may only be affected by this casting once per activation, no culmative effects.

ok, I see the horror of having a unit locked up by this every turn :twisted:
so, this can only be cast on the same unit every other Activation (of said unit)?
e.g. Game Turn one, the Tribal Father Actives first and Casts Rooted Fear on St. Mark.
St. Mark Activates later in the Game Turn and suffers the effects of Rooted Fear. The effects end.
Game Turn Two, because St. Mark was affected by Rooted Fear in his previous Activation, he cannot be targeted by Rooted Fear again, until after he Activates this turn. Once he completes his Activation in Game Turn two he is a valid target for Rooted Fear
In the example above Rooted Fear cannot be cast on Mark until Game turn three. Casting on Game turn two would violate the Consecutive stipulation.

got it, one full game turn between casting rooted fear on the same target.
