When microcosm is manifested, it can target either a single creature or a group.

Targeted: If microcosm targets a single creature, that creature's senses are pinched off from the real world if it has 100 or fewer hit points. The subject's senses are all completely fabricated from within its own mind, though it may not realize this. In reality, the subject sprawls limply and will eventually die of thirst and starvation without aid. However, the subject lives within its own made-up world until the time of its actual death.

Area Effect: If microcosm is manifested as an area effect, it sends creatures in a 15-foot-radius sphere into their own (unlinked) catatonias. It affects only creatures that have 30 or fewer hit points, and only up to a total of 300 hit points of such creatures. The power affects creatures with the lowest hit point totals first until the next creature would put the total over the 300 hit point limit. (Creatures with negative hit points count as having 0 hit points.)

Manifesting microcosm a second time on a subject can turn its sensory pathways outward once more. Otherwise, only very powerful psionic powers or similar effects (such as psychic chirurgery or the spell greater restoration) can undo the mental crosswiring that creates a private world.
