With a flash of your blade you cut not only their body, but their connection to the mystic energy fueling them.
You make a melee attack and deal extra damage against shapechanging creatures and creatures under the effect of a form altering spell or effect, such as alter self. Against creatures under a form-altering effect you deal your normal melee damage and 1d6 + 1 extra point of damage per initiator level. Against creatures with the shapechanger subtype or whose shapechanging is an inherent permenant part of their race, such as lycanthropes, you deal 2d6 + 2 extra points per initiator level. Against things that are neither changed into another form or possessing the shapechanger subtype, this maneuver only does 1d3 extra damage.
As part of the attack, you can choose to attempt to dispel their currently shifted form by making a dispel check, using 1d20 + your ranks in the Control Shape skill against DC 11 + the caster level of the spell (for spells) or DC 11 + the HD of the shapechanged creature (for natural shapeshifters).
This maneuver is a supernatural ability.
