The sword saint sacrifices hit points equal to 50% of his current hit points and all enemies within the area of effect are dealt focus sword damage plus the sacrificed damage. A successful Fortitude save halves this damage. Those who fail the save are Nauseated for a number of rounds equal the sword saint’s Charisma modifier.
