Here's the bad part - by doing this you are totally giving up your defense and hoping the target rolls badly enough on the Fright Check table to affect what they are doing right then. I don't see anything wrong or unbalanced by that approach. Again, just something I'd allow as a GM.
That's how I thought it'd work. But it'd be a power dodge and not a power block, so you wouldn't get the doubling effect that power blocks have right?
