Soulknife (3pp)

Never caught unarmed, the soulknife is the literal interpretation of using the power of the mind as a weapon.

Creating a soul blade is the core of the soulknife, and with it, they are deadly combatants. Versatile and varied, the soulknife can be found in all shapes and sizes, wielding blades unique to the wielder and customized to fit the needs of the soulknife. Fluid in function, the soulknife has mastered how to alter her mind blade to fit the situation, bringing power and versatility into any combat.

Mind Blade

At 3rd level, as a bonus action, you can create a semisolid blade composed of psychic energy distilled from your mind. The blade is identical in all ways (except visually) to a shortsword. The Mind Blade glows phosphorescently in the color of your choice, and sheds dim light in a 15-foot radius. The blade lasts until you dispel it as a bonus action.

You may throw your Mind Blade as a ranged weapon with a range of 30/60 feet. Whether or not the attack hits, the mind blade then dissipates and reappears in your hand.

You can have up to two blades and wield both if you so choose, and it is considered a magical weapon.

Shape Mind Blade

At 7th level, a soulknife gains the ability to change the form of his mind blade. As an attack action, he can change his mind blade to replicate a longsword or a bastard sword (see the equipment chapter). If a soulknife shapes his mind blade into the form of a bastard sword and wields it two-handed, he adds 1-1/2 times his Strength bonus to his damage rolls.

Mind Blade Enhancement

At 10th level a soulknife gains the ability to enhance his mind blade. He can add a +1 bonus to attack and damage.

Bladewind

At 15th level, a soulknife gains the ability to momentarily fragment his mind blade into numerous identical blades, each of which strikes at a nearby opponent.

When wielding his mind blade, a soulknife can give up his regular attacks in a round and instead fragment his mind blade to make one melee attack against each opponent within reach. Each fragment functions identically to the soulknife’s regular mind blade.

When using bladewind, a soulknife forfeits any bonus or extra attacks granted by other feats or abilities. The mind blade immediately reverts to its previous form after the bladewind attack.

Multiple Throw

At 18th level, a soulknife can throw a number of mind blades per round equal to the number of melee attacks he could make.
