Saving Throw: See text

A small golden triangle appears on the back of your hand. Linked to it are two smaller, similar triangles that appear to be faded and inert.

Legend tells of a mighty warlock in a faraway land who brought an entire kingdom to its knees almost singlehandedly. The warlock hailed from a tribe of desert bandits, was the only man born to them in an entire century, and ruled them as their king; he was highly skilled with both magic and weapons, and furthermore, he was nigh-invulnerable — only a sacred sword of evil's bane could even harm him. He was only defeated by the narrowest of margins by a wandering hero who just happened to possess such a blade. But rumor has it that he was not vanquished for good...

Demonsouled who hear of the warlock's tale often try to emulate his powers, and this soulmeld is the result of their efforts. While this soulmeld is shaped, its bearer gains damage reduction 5/good, which increases by 1 for every point of invested essentia, as well as a +1 deflection bonus to AC.  

Chakra Bind (Blast)

As an attack action, you may launch a sphere of dark force. This sphere of dark force is a ranged attack with a range increment of 50 feet. If it hits, it inflicts 2d8 force damage per point of invested essentia and stuns the target for 1 round with no save. However, this is not a touch attack, so shields, armor, and even parrying are all valid means of defense. In fact, if this attack is parried, it is reflected directly back at you, and you must avoid the attack or suffer its full effects. (You can even parry it back at another valid target, including your original target... and before you know it, you're playing tennis.) 

Chakra Bind (Shoulders)

The triangular emblem transforms into a sort of cape, which lifts you off the ground. Who needs walking?

You gain the ability to hover. Your hover speed is 10 feet plus 10 feet per point of invested essentia, and you hover with good maneuverability. 

Chakra Bind (Heart)

When defeat appears to be inevitable, you transform into a colossal piglike demon, and are filled with a savage battle fury.

Whenever you are reduced to half of your maximum hit points, you automatically transform into a gigantic piglike monster. Your size is increased by three size categories, you gain damage reduction 30/epic and good which is increased by 5 per point of invested essentia (superseding the normal benefits of this soulmeld), you gain a +10 enhancement bonus to Strength and Constitution, and you may continue fighting as normal even if reduced to 0 or fewer hit points. You also gain a frightful aura equal to a dragon of your HD, and all of your weapons are treated as epic and evil-aligned for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction. These benefits last for 2 minutes plus 2 more minutes per point of invested essentia. This transformation can only occur once per encounter and up to two times per day. 

Chakra Bind (Arms)

A trident made of evil power appears in your hands.

At will, you may summon a dark trident made of force energy. This requires the same sort of action as drawing a mundane weapon (usually a move action). The trident glimmers gold, but is surrounded with evil energy that crackles like fire. The trident functions like a magic weapon with an enhancement bonus equal to the amount of essentia invested into this soulmeld +1, and it has the unholy, returning, ghost touch, and flaming properties. 

Chakra Bind (Hands)

Vile energy courses through your hands, ready to lay waste to your foes at your command.

You gain an eldritch blast, as a warlock[1] of a caster level equal to your meldshaper level. 

Chakra Bind (Waist)

Changing shape to surround your waist, the golden triangle blunts all spells cast against you.

You gain spell dampening equal to 3× the amount of essentia invested into this soulmeld. 

Chakra Bind (Soul)

The golden triangle fills up your soul. Enchanted with its power, you could be struck by a million arrows and still survive to smash your enemies into broken piles of bone.

You gain damage reduction 20/epic and good, which increases by 5 per point of invested essentia (this supersedes the normal benefits of this soulmeld), as well as resistance 20 to all forms of energy (including force); these resistances also increase by 5 per point of invested essentia. If you are killed, this soulmeld automatically unshapes itself to restore you to life, as a true resurrection spell.
