You create a blinding flash of light to momentarily distract your opponents. A favorite of crafty psychic warriors who mastered the technique of reflecting light off their metal weapons to blind archers while they closed the distance, this power comes with double the surprise in dim and shady battlefields where such a mundane trick would not be possible.

Many warriors today make a show of using a reflective surface when making a blinding flash, although no such prop is strictly necessary. The target of this power must make a Fortitude save or be dazzled.

Augment: You may augment this power in one or both of the following ways:

  • For every additional power point you spend, the power’s duration increases by one round.
  • If you spend 4 additional power points, the target is blinded instead of dazzled.
  • In addition, for every 2 power points spent to achieve either of these effects, increase the save DC by 1.
