|Manifesting Time:||1 Swift Action|
|Target:||Your manifested blade|
|Duration:||1 round/level until discharged|
A psychic warrior can imbue their manifested blade with destructive psychic energy. This deals an extra 1d8 points of damage to the next non-mindless target you successfully hit with your manifested blade.
By expending your psionic focus, you can increase the damage dealt with your Psychic Strike. It will deal an extra 1d8 damage for every 4 character levels beyond 1st (a total of 2d8 at level 5, 3d8 at level 9, etc).
Augment: For 10 additional power points, you may substitute the extra dice of damage for Intelligence, Wisdom, or Charisma damage instead (your choice). Thus, by expending your psionic focus and augmenting this power to 11 power points at level 11 you could deal 3 points of Intelligence, Wisdom, or Charisma damage. In Very High games, this augment costs 6 power points.
Alternate Rules: At the DM's option, this ability can be used on a non-manifested weapon of some significance, such as a Samurai's Ancestral Weapon.
