You find your magic to be insufficient for reaching your goal, so you begin to draw from darker sources.
Prerequisite: Manifestation level 3rd.
Gift: When you are the target of a damaging or healing spell, before the damage or healing is rolled, you can choose to take one fewer die of damage (for a damaging spell) or add one die of healing (for a healing spell).
Stain: Each time you use forbidden magic’s gift, you must succeed at a Will saving throw (DC = 15 + your manifestation level) or you progress to the next corruption stage.
