Voidmeld Manifestations

Accretion Disk

Ethermagic 3
Etherheart Restriction: Voidmeld
EP Cost: 5
The caster's void blade gains a context-sensitive gravity well of immense power and becomes capable of producing an accretion disk out of certain energies and materials. Whenever the caster scores a critical hit with his void blade, he gains 1 accretion charge, reflecting the growth of the accretion disk. As soon as he receives his third charge, the caster may cast an etherspell with the lesser blast etherheart and no manifestations as an immediate action without paying its normal ether point cost. The caster may use this in conjunction with etherstrike if the caster has that class feature. Whether or not the caster takes the opportunity to cast the bonus etherspell, this etherspell ends immediately after granting the opportunity to do so.

Accretion Disk, Greater

Ethermagic 4
Etherheart Restriction: Voidmeld
EP Cost: 7
The caster's void blade gains a context-sensitive gravity well of immense power and becomes capable of producing an accretion disk out of certain energies and materials. Whenever the caster scores a critical hit with his void blade, he gains 1 accretion charge, reflecting the growth of the accretion disk. As soon as he receives his third charge, the caster may cast an etherspell with the lesser blast etherheart and a single non-shape manifestation as an immediate action without paying its normal ether point cost. The caster may use this in conjunction with etherstrike if the caster has that class feature. Whether or not the caster takes the opportunity to cast the bonus etherspell, this etherspell ends immediately after granting the opportunity to do so.

Antimagic Ether

Ethermagic 4
Etherheart Restriction: Voidmeld
EP Cost: 5
The void blade suppresses a creature's spell resistance for a short amount of time. Anytime the void blade strikes a creature with spell resistance and the creature takes damage from the weapon, the target's spell resistance is reduced by 1 for 1 minute. On a confirmed critical hit, its spell resistance is instead reduced by an amount equal to the weapon's critical multiplier. Multiple hits from a void blade with this manifestation stack.

Arcing Blows

Ethermagic 3
Etherheart Restriction: Voidmeld
EP Cost: 5
Whenever the caster hits with his void blade, he produces a 10-foot cone of stellar energy. This cone originates in the squares the struck creature occupies and is pointed directly away from the caster. If the struck creature takes up multiple squares, select any one square that the caster can reach as the point of origination. Creatures caught in the cone take force damage equal to the enhancement bonus of the caster’s void blade with a Reflex save to negate.

Edge of Infinity

Ethermagic 1
Etherheart Restriction: Voidmeld
EP Cost: 1

As the ether is beyond time and space, this manifestation can increase a void blade's enhancement bonus beyond +5. This bonus stacks with the void blade’s native enhancement bonus granted via level advancement, but not with other sources of enhancement bonuses, such as the greater magic weapon spell. When determining what forms of damage reduction a void blade can overcome by virtue of having a high enhancement bonus, do not include the enhancement bonus granted by this manifestation.

In addition, the void blade reduces the target's base land speed by 10 feet, to a minimum of 5 feet, for 1 round on a successful critical hit. A Fortitude save negates.

Plasma Edge

Counterspelling Ethermagic

Though a more standard arcane caster may initially be quite confused by what appears to be an inexhaustible supply of magic from a single source, the savvy wizard or sorcerer quickly learns that everything an ethermagician does is evocation, or at least detects as such by the magic they have accepted as the norm. Some of it may look like transmutation or conjuration, but the manipulation of energy, and, thus, evocation, is paramount to the art of ethermancy in all of its forms. This incredibly linear spell selection, combined with a low spell level ceiling, makes it particularly easy to lock down an ethermagician, at least for a few rounds. An etherspell can be countered by any evocation spell whose spell level is greater than or equal to the highest spell level among manifestations in the etherspell.
