Daily Punch 7-31-20 Transfer Trauma spell for Call of Cthulhu 7th Ed

Ran an adventure for GenCon 2020. Had a blast doing it, but a player instantly go crazy. How about a spell that can fix that… for a cost.

Transfer Trauma
Cost: 5 magic points; 1D4 Sanity points
Casting time: 1 round
Even the most powerful general knows when to sacrifice a few few peons, and you a no good to the gods if mad. When cast on a target, you link your mind to the target. The target will experience your trauma instead, taking all Sanity loss for you at double the rate for the next hour after the initial sanity loss for casting the spell. An unwilling target may counter the spell with an opposed POW roll each time they would lose sanity. If pain is inflicted upon the target when when the spell is cast, it gains one penalty die on the opposed POW roll for each point of damage made during the casting
Alternative names: Mind Bridge, Dark Link of the Mad
