Panic is based on wimpy. The higher your wimpy, the greater the chance of you panicking upon fleeing the room. Brave souls never panic (as they never flee combat) and probably die a lot too. There are certain skills and abilities that boost morale, and thus avoid panic effects. There are also a host of abilities that instill panic.

Panic effects include screaming, running, hiding, and some very fragile souls can even mentally snap under the stress. Although cowards may live longer, they suffer from a host of indignities as a result of their panic.

Know when to be brave, and when to run, that is the making of a true hero.
