Body and Soul Style [Arcane Combat] Magic is a force in the universe which can be manipulated just as any other ability. Spellcasters have an innate pool which they draw upon in combat, but even warriors can learn fighting styles which draw out magic from the surrounding natural world no different than using gravity to augment the power behind their blows. The body and soul style, originally developed by an unknown lich cleric, draws energy from the world and uses it to manipulate the forces of life and death seamlessly blended with martial prowess.Prerequisites: Fighter level 4, Spellcraft 2 ranksBenefit: The energy you draw from the universe makes any weapon you wield at minimum a +1 weapon. However if you are already carrying a magic weapon, you can channel positive or negative energy through it. If you channel negative energy, living creatures you strike with your weapon take a -1 penalty on attacks, skill checks, and saves for 1 round, while undead creatures get a +1 bonus to attacks, skill checks, and saves for 1 round. Positive energy does the same, but deals a penalty to undead, and a bonus to living creatures. You may hit as a touch attack, dealing no damage but applying the bonus or penalty. Multiple strikes do not stack nor extend the duration. You can change the type of energy of your weapon (positive or negative) deals by meditating for 15 minutes. This is a supernatural ability.
Knowledge Arcana, Knowledge Nature, Knowledge Religion, Knowledge The Planes, and Spellcraft all become class skills retroactively.
Special: Arcane Combat feats can be taken as fighter bonus feats.
