Sword Skill Dark Sword (Basic)
Element Shadow


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


An abyssal sword forms from under the target, piercing upward dealing damage to the target equal to sword saint’s focus sword damage plus an additional 1d6 damage per two sword saint levels. The sword saint also heals HP equal to the amount of damage dealt. A successful Fortitude save halves this damage and negates the healing effect. If the damage was more than enough to kill the target, any excess damage doesn’t count toward the amount healed.

Practiced: This swordskill with practice grants the sword saint temporary hit points equal to his sword saint level for the rest of the encounter or until lost.

Perfected: This swordskill when perfected, heals half the amount even if the target passes the save.
