You focus emotional energy and weave it into a shroud of hardened ectoplasm around the weapon you touch, infusing it with a ghostly glow and great power. The weapon becomes a ghost touch weapon, and gains one of the following additional benefits, depending on the type of emotion you infuse into the weapon. If a special ability wouldn’t apply to the chosen weapon (such as vicious on a ranged weapon), the weapon doesn’t gain that benefit.

Anger: The weapon also gains the vicious special ability.

Dedication: The weapon also gains the returning special ability.

Despair: The weapon also gains the cruel special ability.

Fear: The weapon also gains the menacing special ability.

Hatred: The weapon also gains the cunning special ability.

Jealousy: The weapon also gains the mimetic special ability.

Remorse: The weapon also gains the heartseeker special ability. Source PPC:OO

Zeal: The weapon also gains the keen special ability.

If you are a spiritualist and the type of emotional energy you choose matches the emotional focus of your phantom, the weapon grants its wielder a +2 bonus on skill checks with both skills you gain Skill Focus in from your phantom’s emotional focus.
