In order to use this power you must be within 30 ft of an animal or beast (normal, intelligent, magic, phrenic, or psionic) that has a natural attack (bite, claw, tail sting, etc) and has a number of hit die equal to or less than your manifester level. For as long as this power lasts your body alters itself in as minor of a way as possible to allow you the ability to mimic the animal’s or beast’s natural attack. You may grow claws, a tail, a sturdy maw, or some other appropriate appendage. These growths serve no useable function except for the purpose of making a natural attack.
You are automatically proficient with any natural attacks gained this way for as long as the power lasts. You can only make a single attack per round using the natural attack, and the amount of damage done by this attack is limited to a single die of damage plus any appropriate damage gained by the characters Strength score, feats, etc. If you manifest a Formbound or Shapechanging power while this power is active, this power ends immediately. This power fails automatically if used on a target under the effects of a Formbound or Shapechanging power. Manifesting this power in no way conveys any other aspect of the animal or beast that this power mimics.
Augment: This power may be augmented in one or both of the following ways:
- If you spend 1 additional power point, you can mimic another die of damage per power point spent in this manner, up to the maximum damage die of the natural attack being mimicked.
- If you spend 2 additional power points, you can mimic an additional natural attack form for every 2 power points spent in
this manner. Additional damage purchased through the prior augment is split however you see fit up to the combined limit purchased through the augment.
