Special Abilities

Decoy Chest (Sp) A mythic mercane has two secret chests, one of which is a decoy that is summoned in a way indistinguishable from the real secret chest. Anyone but the mythic mercane who opens the decoy chest is paralyzed as if it had read a sepia snake sigil (DC 16 Will negates). If the creature is not a mythic creature, it is also affected as if it had read an illusory script, requiring a separate DC 16 Will save. If the mythic mercane is present when the decoy chest is opened, it may spend one use of its mythic power to force the creature(s) opening the decoy chest to roll twice on their saving throw(s), taking the worst result.

Ready Mind (Su) A mythic mercane’s mind is always shielded as if it were wearing a ring of mind shielding. In addition, a mythic mercane can make a Spellcraft check to identify any divination effect used against it, even if it is not aware of the caster. If it successfully identifies the effect, it can expend one use of its mythic power as an immediate action to use misdirection or false vision (caster level 6th) to confuse the attempted divination, or two uses of its mythic power to use the mythic version of one of these spells.

Secret Chest (Sp) A mythic mercane can retrieve or hide an extradimensional storage chest, as the secret chest spell (caster level 5th). The mythic mercane does not need an expensive replica chest to use this ability; any chest will do. It can only use this ability on one chest at a time.

True Appraisal (Su) When a mythic mercane makes an Appraise check, it rolls twice and takes the higher result. A mythic mercane may expend one use of mythic power to take 20 on an Appraise check, while simultaneously discerning an item’s true nature and properties as if using identify and true seeing.
