When surrounded, a disciple of the Black Seraph may lay low many foes by the force of his hellish wrath. By crying out in horrible rage and raising his weapon straight up to the sky, the disciple’s foes are showered with dozens of needles of dark energy which inflict 8d6 points of profane damage. The pain- filled nature of this attack has the potential to sicken targets with wracking agonies for the character’s initiation modifier in rounds. This maneuver allows a Reflex saving throw (DC 14 + initiation modifier) for half damage and to reduce the sickened condition’s duration to one round.
