With a mighty killing blow, your unsettling punch vaporizes your foe.
Benefit(s): As a swift action, you can spend 1 point from your ki pool to imbue the next unarmed strike you make on this turn with the maddening power of the spaces between the stars. If that attack doesn’t hit, you take 2 points of Wisdom damage. If the attack hits, your opponent takes damage from your unarmed strike + 1d4+1 points of Wisdom damage. A successful Will save (DC = 10 + 1/2 your character level + your Wisdom modifier) reduces this to 2 points of Wisdom damage.
Special: If you are using the sanity system, when you miss with a Maddening Strike, you take 4 points of sanity damage. If you hit, the target takes damage from the unarmed strike plus 8 points of sanity damage (or 4 points of sanity damage on a successful Will save).
