Annulment

Abjuration

  • Level: Swordmage 9
  • Casting Time: 1 standard action
  • Range: Melee Attack
  • Duration: 1 round/level
  • Saving Throw: Will partial

The Swordmage makes a sweeping action, as if chopping something near his foe, but his hand is empty. None who witness it can tell, but his foe can - he no longer can call upon the power he once wielded.

This Incantation produces a blockade between the target and his power. Mages cannot reach the flows of Arcana that their spells manipulate, priests cannot reach their deities, psionicists cannot bring their power to bear on the world around them, binders cannot reach vestiges and shadowcasters cannot reach the Plane of Shadow. In short, the target loses any ability that they would lose in an Antimagic Field or Null Psionics Field, for the duration. Extraordinary abilities are not affected.

On a successful saving throw, the target retains its abilities, but takes a -6 penalty to their effective level when determining the effects of their supernatural abilities (e.g., caster level, manifester level, binder level, etc.) This may prevent access to higher-level spells, powers, mysteries and abilities until the duration expires. Additionally the cast time of any, spells, powers, mysteries and abilities activated by the target is increased by one step (i.e., a swift action becomes a standard action, a standard action becomes a full-round action, and so on.)
