|Veiled Knight (Counter) [Force]|
|Prerequisite:||One Veiled Knight maneuver|
|Initiation Action:||Immediate action|
|Saving Throw:||Reflex partial|
The wizard tried to cast a spell, but before he could finish, a ghostly copy of the blade in your hand burst through his throat, ending his spell and his life with a gurgle.
When you initiate this offensive counter, you throw forth your hand, and a spectral weapon of force flies from your palm to strike the target.
As an immediate action, you may make a single melee touch attack at your highest base attack bonus. The target, if struck, is damaged as if you struck them with whatever weapon you have in-hand; If you aren't holding a weapon, they take 1d8 Force damage, +1 per initiator level (Max +5). Unless they succeed on a Reflex save (DC 12 + your Intelligence modifier), they are caught flat-footed by the attack, granting all appropriate bonuses such as Sneak Attack. The ghostly weapon strikes incorporeal creatures as if it possesses the Ghost Touch enchantment.
However, the strain of initiating this maneuver consumes all of your attacks of opportunity for the next 2 rounds, no matter how many of them you have.
