Blessings


A warpriest can select any two blessings granted by his deity. Deities grant blessings of the same name as the domains they grant. Unless otherwise noted, using a blessing is a standard action. A warpriest without a deity can select any two blessings (subject to GM approval). If a blessing’s power duplicates a spell effect, the warpriest‘s caster level for that power is equal to his warpriest level.

Blessings that affect weapons and armor benefit anyone who wields or wears those items, not just the warpriest.

Air

Zephyr’s Gift (minor): At 1st level, you can touch any one ranged weapon and enhance it with the quality of air. For 1 minute, any attacks made with the weapon take no penalties due to range. In addition, making a ranged attack with this weapon doesn’t provoke an attack of opportunity.

Soaring Assault (major): At 10th level, you can touch an ally and give her the gift of flight for 1 minute (as fly). The ally gains a fly speed of 60 feet with average maneuverability. She gains a bonus on Fly skill checks equal to your level. Whenever the ally succeeds at a charge attack while flying, that attack deals an amount of additional electricity damage equal to your level.

Animal

Animal Fury (minor): At 1st level, you can touch one ally and grant it feral features. The ally gains 2 claw attacks that each deal 1d6 points of damage if the ally is Medium or 1d4 if it’s Small, or 1 bite attack that deals 1d8 points of damage if the ally is Medium or 1d6 if it’s Small. These are primary natural attacks that replace any similar primary natural attacks the ally might have. This effect lasts for 1 minute.

Battle Companion (major): At 10th level, you can summon a battle companion. This ability functions as summon nature’s ally V with a duration of 1 minute. This ability can summon only one animal, regardless of the list used.

Artifice

Transfer Magic (major): At 10th level, you can temporarily transfer a weapon special ability from one weapon to another. The bearers of each of the weapons must be willing, and you must be touching both weapons to activate this ability. You can transfer a weapon special ability with a base price modifier of +1 or +2. If you are using this ability on a double weapon, only one end of the double weapon is affected. The transfer lasts for 1 minute, after which the transferred weapon special ability automatically returns to the source weapon. You can use this ability multiple times on the same weapon or weapons. Alternatively, you can use transfer magic to move a +1 or +2 armor special ability from one touched suit of armor to another, or move a +1 or +2 armor or weapon enhancement bonus to another armor or weapon.

Chaos

Anarchic Strike (minor): At 1st level, you can touch one weapon and grant it a chaotic blessing. For 1 minute, this weapon glows yellow or purple and deals an additional 1d6 points of damage against lawful creatures.

Charm

Charming Presence (minor): At 1st level, you can touch an ally and grant an entrancing blessing. For 1 minute, the ally becomes mesmerizing to her opponents, filling them with either abject admiration or paralyzing fear. This effect functions as sanctuary, except if the ally attacks an opponent, the effect ends with respect to only that opponent. This is a mind-affecting effect.

Dominance Aura (major): At 10th level, you can surround yourself with a tangible aura of majesty for 1 minute. While this aura is active, once per round as a swift action you can issue a command (as the command spell) to one creature within 30 feet; the creature must succeed at a Will saving throw or submit for 1 round.

Community

Communal Aid (minor): At 1st level, you can touch an ally and grant it the blessing of community. For the next minute, whenever that ally uses the aid another action, the bonus granted increases to +4. You can instead use this ability on yourself as a swift action.

Fight as One (major): At 10th level, you can rally your allies to fight together. For 1 minute, whenever you make a successful melee or ranged attack against a foe, allies within 10 feet of you gain a +2 insight bonus on attacks of the same type you made against that foe—melee attacks if you made a melee attack, or ranged attacks if you made a ranged attack. If you score a critical hit, this bonus increases to +4 until the start of your next turn.

Select one of the following effects: the target takes a –2 penalty to one ability score of your choice (the ability cannot be reduced below 1); the target takes a –2 penalty on attack rolls, saving throws, ability checks, and skill checks; each turn, the target has a 25% chance of taking no action (otherwise, it acts normally). This curse lasts for 1 hour. A creature can be subjected to only one instance of retributive curse at a time. This otherwise functions as bestow curse.

Darkness

Enshrouding Darkness (minor): At 1st level, you can touch an ally and bestow a darkness blessing. For 1 minute, the ally becomes enshrouded in shadows while in combat, granting it concealment (20%). Creatures that are normally able to see in supernatural darkness ignore this concealment.

Death

From the Grave (minor): At 1st level, you can take on a corpse-like visage for 1 minute, making you more intimidating and giving you undead-like protection from harm.

If you succeed, you inflict 1 temporary negative level on the target for 1 minute. Alternatively, you can activate this ability as a swift action upon hitting an opponent with a melee attack. These temporary negative levels stack. You gain no benefit from imposing these negative levels (such as the temporary hit points undead gain from enervation).

Earth

Acid Strike (minor): At 1st level, you can touch one weapon and enhance it with acidic potency.

Tactical Readiness (Major) At 10th level, you can rally your allies within 30 feet, allowing each to immediately do one of the following as a free action that does not provoke attacks of opportunity: remove the flat-footed condition, take a 5-foot step, draw a weapon, ready a shield, or gain a +1 dodge bonus to AC for 1 round. You can affect a number of allies equal to your Wisdom bonus. These actions do not count against your allies’ total movement or actions on their next turn.

Hand of the Acolyte (minor): At 1st level, you can cause your melee weapon to fly from your grasp and strike an opponent, then instantly return to you. You can make a single attack using a melee weapon at a range of 30 feet.

Back to the Grave (major): At 10th level, when using channel energy to heal living creatures, you can take a swift action on that same turn to also deal damage to undead creatures (as your channel energy ability).

Sun

Blinding Strike (minor): At 1st level, you can create a flash of sunlight in the eyes of one of your opponents. The target is blinded for 1 round.

Sightless creatures are unaffected by this ability.

Dimensional Hop (major): At 10th level, you can teleport up to 20 feet as a move action. You can increase this distance by expending another use of your blessing—each use spent grants an additional 20 feet. You must have line of sight to your destination. This teleportation doesn’t provoke attacks of opportunity. You can bring other willing creatures with you, but each such creature requires expending one additional use of your blessing, regardless of the distance traveled. (For example, transporting yourself 40 feet costs 2 uses of your blessing, and transporting an additional person this distance costs 1 more use.)

Trickery

Double (minor): At 1st level, as a move action you can create an illusory double of yourself. This double functions as a single mirror image, and lasts for a number of rounds equal to your warpriest level, or until the illusory duplicate is dispelled or destroyed.

If the target fails at a Fortitude saving throw, it’s also staggered for 1 round as it catches its breath. If the target was attempting to hold its breath, it can no longer do so: it must breathe on its turn or risk suffocation and unconsciousness. Creatures that don’t need to breathe are unaffected. Regardless of whether it succeeds at its saving throw, the target is immune to further uses of your airless touch for 24 hours.

Deny Gravity (major): At 10th level, as a standard action you can touch an ally to allow her to ignore the effects of gravity for 1 minute (as fly).
