DESCRIPTION

The manifester combines life force and psionic energy into a shield that protects the target from negative energy attacks. This power prevents energy drain and any negative energy effects, including channeled energy. Once the power has prevented (or helped prevent) one effect, the power dissipates. When manifested the power deals 2 points of non-lethal damage to the target. The damage may be healed normally. The subject gains +4 moral bonus against death spells and magical/psionic death effects even if a save to negate such effects is not normally allowed.

This power does not remove negative levels that the target has already gained, but it does remove penalties from negative levels for the duration of the power.

Resist death does not protect against other sorts of attacks, even if those attacks might be lethal.

Augment: For every additional 2 points spent, the power prevents 1 additional effect.
