And the Swordmage shifted his stance, and there was a gently curved, single-edge sword in his hands, wickedly sharp. As he maneuvered again, those who recognized the maneuver blanched in fear, and with his stroke he cut the uncuttable, his fearsome sword edged to an infinitesimal point, dividing that which could not be. The results are only ruins.

If the attack is not performed immediately, the Swordmage can hold this stance indefinitely but cannot move or take any actions other than speech. Completing the attack is an immediate action, and if the stance is dropped without completion, the Incantation is still expended.

With one incredible swing, you devastate the area ahead of you, dealing 100 fire damage in a 100-ft. cone and stunning all targets in the area for 1 round. These flames, derived from the tearing of the very fabric of reality, sear through any resistances to normal fire and ignore object hardness. A successful Fortitude save halves the damage and negates the stun effect. After executing this attack, the Swordmage is fatigued for the rest of the encounter from exertion.

Intelligent observers can sense the incredible danger of the Swordmage's stance, and may recognize its source with a DC 15 Knowledge (Arcana), Knowledge (History), or Martial Lore check. Using this attack is incredibly reckless, and is likely to draw the attention of the appropriate deities.
