Sword Skill Dark Sword (Basic)
Element Shadow


Range 15 ft.
Target one creature
Saving Throw Reflex half (see text)


A violet sword curves out from the underworld under the target dealing focus sword damage plus an additional 1d4 points of MP damage per three sword saint levels to the target’s MP pool. If the target does not have MP, they, instead, take hit point damage. A successful Reflex save halves this damage.

Practiced: This sword skill with practice deals the same damage to the target’s stamina pool if applicable. If the target has both Stamina pool and MP, the damage is split between them.

Perfected: This sword skill when perfected, keeps the target from restoring stamina points or MP for a number of rounds equal to the sword saint’s Charisma modifier on a failed save.
