DESCRIPTION

When manifesting this power, you must choose one skill. If your rank in that skill is higher, the target uses your ranks in place of his own ranks (maximum 5 ranks), and vice versa. If a target’s skill ranks are replaced by this power, they are treated as though they actually had the shared ranks in the skill for all purposes (including class skill bonuses and the use of trained-only skills).

Augment: You can augment this power in one or more of the following ways.

1. For every 2 additional power points you spend, you can choose an additional skill to share. Compare each skill individually.

2. For every 2 additional power points you spend, the maximum ranks you can share increases by 5 ranks.

3. If you spend 2 additional power points, this power can affect an unwilling target, and the power’s saving throw becomes “Will negates (harmless)”. Unwilling targets do not gain the benefit of increased skill ranks, although their skill ranks may be shared with willing targets.
