Default New Disadvantage: Fascination

You are fascinated by something - fire, a melody, a smell or something else. When confronted with the subject of your fascination, you will stand still and just watch (or listen, etc.) it. Treat this as being Dazed (p.B428), although you get a self-control roll to avoid this. You are incapacitated for 1d minutes unless you are attacked, slapped, etc. Once you've woken up you are immune to your fascination for 10 minutes.

Base value is as follows:
Rare: -15 points
Occasional: -30 points
Common: -45 points

This may seems like an excess, but in combat it is equivalent to everyone getting to make a Targeted All-Out Attack on you.

Thoughts?

It's equivalent to one combatant getting to make a Telegraphic All-Out Attack on you... if one of your buddies doesn't shake you first. I'd be tempted to use the same price as an appropriate Phobia, including suffering penalties while near the object of your fascination, but instead of making a roll on the Fright table you are simply dazed (or better yet, if you have an Awe equivalent of the Fright table, roll on that instead).

I'd be fine with -5*, -10* or -15* points, otherwise, someone can get 90 points(common at 6) for something with is so many times smaller than cursed.

I definitely like this idea better. It's definitely not something I think about, but it would be a good match for Phobia, and it could be a good branch off of Obsession.

I'd base it on Flashbacks--more specific trigger, easier end condition, but similar effects.
