[/table]

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: You gain no new proficiencies with weapons, armor, or shields.

Incarnum Body (Ex): Your levels in Incandescent Champion stack with your levels in the Incarnum class used to enter this prestige class for purposes of determining your Max Essentia capacity. (if any)

Incandescent Strike (Su): You can channel incarnum to increase the damage dealt by your melee attacks. For each such augmented attack, you gain a bonus on your damage roll equal to the number of points of essentia invested in this ability. Whenever you have essentia invested in incandescent strike, your hands glow with a bright light equivalent to that produced by a light spell.

Unbearable Countenance (Su): When you attain 3rd level, inner power begins to shine forth from your face, giving you a radiant countenance that dismays your foes. With a glance, you can render a single foe within 30 feet shaken for 1 round (Will negates; save DC 10 + invested essentia + Cha modifier). Your glance becomes a mindaffecting fear effect, and using it requires a move action. Any foe that successfully saves against this effect is immune to your unbearable countenance for 1 hour thereafter. This ability is always active.

Incarnum Overload (Ex): At 2nd level, you can temporarily boost the maximum essentia capacity of any soulmeld, Incarnum feat, or special ability that allows essentia investment. This effect lasts for 1 round, during which the essentia capacity of the chosen soulmeld, feat, or ability increases by an amount equal to your Charisma bonus (minimum +1). This ability is usable once per day as a free action.

You gain an additional use of this ability for every 2 levels in this class to a total of 5/day at tenth level.

Incandescent Ray (Su): Beginning at 5th level, you can channel incarnum into a ray of pure, brilliant soul energy at will. Using this ability is a standard action; you must make a successful ranged touch attack to hit your target. The incandescent ray has a range of 60 feet and deals 2d8 points of damage per point of essentia invested in this ability. This is untyped damage and affected by Spell resistance.

Fast Healing (Su): When you reach 7th level, the irrepressible force of your soul restores your vitality whenever you are wounded, granting you fast healing at a rate equal to the points of essentia you invest in this ability.

Incandescent Aura (Su): Once you attain 8th level, incarnum has become so integral to your physical form that your body constantly exudes pure, brilliant soul energy. At the start of your turn, every creature adjacent to you that you designate as a foe takes 1d6 points of damage per point of essentia invested in this ability. A successful Will save halves this damage (DC 10 + invested essentia + Cha modifier). This ability is always active.
If you have essentia invested in your incandescent aura ability, you shine with a bright light equivalent to that produced by a daylight spell (caster level equals incandescent champion level).

Incandescent Transcendence: At 10th level, you forsake your mortal nature to fully embrace the power of your spirit. Your type changes to outsider, and you gain the native and good subtypes. Your natural weapons and any weapons you wield are treated as good-aligned for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.
Furthermore, as a standard action at will the Incadescent Champion can turn into pure luminous energy. Upon assuming this form, you become incorporeal and gain a fly speed of 60 feet (perfect maneuverability). You cannot make attacks, cast spells, or activate special abilities while in your energy form, though you can invest essentia as usual, user your Incandescent Ray ability and your incandescent aura functions normally.


Incarnum Blade

Requirements
Alignment: Any
Base attack bonus: +5

Hit Dice: d12

{table=head]Level|BAB|Fort Save|Ref Save|Will Save|Special|Essentia Pool

1st| +1| +1 | +0 | +0 | Shape Blademeld, Blademeld Chakra Binds (Crown, Feet), Incarnum Body|1

5th| +5 | +3 | +2 | +2 | Blademeld Chakra Binds (Heart, Soul) |5
[/table]

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: You gain no new proficiencies with weapons, armor, or shields.

Incarnum Body (Ex): Your levels in Incarnum Blade stack with your levels in the Incarnum class used to enter this prestige class for purposes of determining your Max Essentia capacity. (if any)

Shape Blademeld (Su): At 1st level, you gain the ability to create a special Soulmeld called a blademeld by wrapping incarnum into a melee weapon of your choice. Doing so ties the chosen weapon more closely to your mind and soul and grants it special powers.

A weapon with a blademeld shaped on it appears to have a blue glow and is treated as a magic weapon for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction. Its hardness improves by 5, and its hit points increase by 5 per level you possess in incarnum blade. The weapon gains a bonus on saving throws and damage rolls equal to your incarnum blade level.

Shaping the blademeld requires 8 hours of rest followed by 1 hour of meditation, just like shaping any other soulmeld does. The blademeld remains shaped until you unshape it, though it unshapes automatically if the weapon to which it is attached is sundered or otherwise destroyed. Simply losing possession of the weapon does not unshape the blademeld, and it still retains its enhanced hardness, hit points, save bonuses and damage bonuses even if you are not holding it. The wielder benefits granted by the blademeld do not apply to anyone else who might pick it up.

Blademeld Chakra Bind (Su):When you shape your blademeld, you can bind it to one of your bodyís chakras. Doing so grants you a special ability that lasts as long as the blademeld is shaped and the weapon is held. Unlike most soulmelds, the blademeldís appearance does not change while it is bound to a chakra, and the affected chakra is not apparent in any way to an onlooker.

Furthermore, the weapon to which the blademeld is attached is still wielded normally, even if it is bound to a chakra other than your hands. You can be disarmed normally, and it can still be sundered in the usual way. If you lose or put down the weapon while it is bound, it remains bound and retains the special characteristics it gains from the blademeld; you also retain the special ability gained from the bind. No one else can benefit from the weaponís incarnum-based powers. Unlike a typical chakra bind, this one does not close the corresponding body slot.

For example, a blademeld bound to your hands chakra does not prevent you from wearing a pair of magic gloves. Blademeld chakra bind does not grant you the ability to bind soulmelds or other magic items to your chakras. At 1st level, you can bind your blademeld to your Crown and Feet chakras; at 2nd level, you can bind it to your Hands and Arms chakra's; at 3rd level, you can bind it to your Brow and Shoulders chakra's; at 4th level, you can bind it to your Throat and Waist chakra's; and at 5th level, you can bind it to your Heart and Soul chakra's; Binding your blademeld to a chakra grants you a special ability according to the chakra chosen, as detailed below.

Additionally you may invest Essentia into your Blademeld with varying effects depending on the chakra bound to it.


Crown Chakra: As long as this chakra bind is in effect, you have uncanny battlefield insight. The Incarnum Blade retains his Dexterity bonus to AC (if any) even if he is caught flat-footed or struck by an invisible attacker. However, he still loses his Dexterity bonus to AC if immobilized. If a barbarian already has uncanny dodge from a different class, he automatically gains improved uncanny dodge instead.

Essentia: For each point of essentia invested you gain a +1 insight bonus on attacks of opportunity.

Feet Chakra: You react more quickly than usual to danger, gaining a +4 insight bonus on initiative checks, while this chakra bind is in effect. In addition, you can make attacks of opportunity with the blademeld weapon even while flat-footed.

Essentia: For each point of essentia invested you gain a +5 bonus to speed.

Hands Chakra: You are able to swing your blademeld with tremendous speed. While the blademeld is bound to this chakra, you gain an additional attack made at your highest attack bonus when attacking with the blademeld weapon as a full attack action. This does not stack with similar abilities such as Haste and the Speed property.

Essentia: For each point of essentia invested you gain a +1 insight bonus to attack and damage rolls with your blademeld weapon.

Arms Chakra: You can deal devastating strikes in combat. While it is in effect, this chakra bind grants you a +4 insight bonus on attack rolls made to confirm a critical threat with the blademeld weapon.

Essentia: For every 2 point's of essentia invested you increase the critical threat range with your blademeld weapon by 1.

Brow Chakra: You can more effectively battle foes that you canít see clearly while this chakra bind is in effect. You ignore any miss chances that your opponent has while wielding your blademeld weapon. You must still be able to see your oppoenent.

Essentia: For every point of essentia invested you gain a +2 insight bonus to Perception checks.

Shoulders Chakra: You gain the ability to avoid certain particularly deadly strikes. Any time a melee attack would deal you a critical hit or sneak attack, you have a 25% chance to negate the extra damage from it. This ability is active as long as this chakra bind is in effect. You need not be aware of the attack for the ability to function, but it grants no benefit if you are unconscious or otherwise helpless.

Essentia: For every 2 point's of essentia invested you gain a +1 insight bonus to your saves.

Throat Chakra: At will, you can brandish the weapon bearing the blademeld and utter a hearty battle shout that demoralizes foes. Each enemy within 60 feet who can hear you must save or become shaken for 1 round (Will DC 10 + incarnum blade level + Con modifier). You can use this ability at will as a standard action as long as the chakra bind is in effect.

Essentia: For every point of essentia invested you increase the DC of your shout by +1.

Waist Chakra: As long as this chakra bind is in effect, you are incredibly stable and well balanced when wielding your blademeld weapon. The Incarnum Blade cannot be knocked prone while wielding his blademeld weapon.

Essentia: For every point of essentia invested you gain a +2 bonus to CMD checks.

Heart Chakra: The weapon bearing the blademeld grants you improved health and well-being in combat as long as this chakra bind is in effect. You gain bonus hit points equal to twice your character level. These extra hit points are not lost first the way temporary hit points are; if you change the chakra bind of your blademeld, you lose them immediately.

Essentia: As a move action the Incarnum Blade can heal an amount of hit points equal to his Constitution modifier x the amount of essentia points invested. The Incarnum Blade can do this an amount of times per day equal to his Constitution modifier. Once essentia is invested in this chakra bind it is locked in for 24 hours.

Soul Chakra: Your blademeld weapon gains an alignment for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction. When you activate the chakra bind, you can choose any single alignment component (chaos, evil, good, or law) that matches one of your own. Thereafter, the choice cannot be changed until a new blademeld is shaped. Your weapon bypasses any DR of a creature with the chosen alignment.

Essentia: For every point of essentia invested you deal +1d4 damage to creatures with the appropriate alignment.


Rebind Blademeld (Su): At 3rd level, you gain the ability to change the chakra to which your blademeld is bound. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 1 + your Constitution bonus (minimum 1/day). Rebinding your blademeld is a standard action that does not provoke attacks of opportunity.

At 5th level, you can change one or both of your blademeldís two chakra binds simultaneously as a standard action.

Dual Chakra Binding: Upon attaining 4th level, you can bind your blademeld to two of your chakras simultaneously. The second chakra bind must be one that was gained at a lower incarnum blade level than the first. For example, if the first chakra bind is throat, the second cannot be waist; it must be lesser or least. You gain the special abilities from both chakra binds as though you were using each independently.

Feats

INCARNUM FEATS
Incarnum feats are similar to soulmelds in that they allow you to invest essentia into them, increasing their power. Unlike most other incarnum-based abilities, a character can invest essentia into each incarnum feat only once per day. Once invested, the essentia is unavailable for other purposes until 24 hours have passed. However large your essentia pool is, you can only invest a certain amount of essentia into any one soulmeld, feat, class feature, magic item, or other incarnum receptacle. Your character level determines this essentia capacity. Incarnum feats display visual manifestations of their effect, such as a faint radiance or glow.

You can apply the effect of different metamagic feats to different spells, as long as you know all metamagic feats applied and you have sufficient essentia capacity to do so. For example, you could invest 1 point of essentia to enlarge a spell (as Enlarge Spell) and 2 points of essentia to empower a spell (as Empower Spell), as long as you had at least 3 points of essentia to invest, had an essentia capacity of 3 or greater, and knew both the Empower Spell and Enlarge Spell feats.

You do realize this is intended for Pathfinder right? Turn/Rebuke Undead doesn't exist anymore instead they channel positive or negative energy for 1d6/2 cleric levels. Power Attack and Combat Expertise have further BAB restricting the accepted of 1/4 BAB so you made almost useless feats because the feats themselves won't allow an additional penalty. Sapphire Smite, this back in 3.5 with psychic infusion helped create a Pathfinder equivalent now you are just giving free burns for everyone when the Paladin uses the Aura of Justice to spam smites against all evil opponents. Azure Toughness, you essentially made a fully augmented vigor ability that can be used at will alah psycarnum infusion and you still didn't anything to the worst incarnum feat(Psycarnum Crystal).
In general I don't think you understand Pathfinder's take on 3.5. It isn't just about an overall increase in power it is about customizable options to slightly change play and theme from other people of the same class in which none of your base classes have. Also I don't understand why some of your soulmeld/essentia have limited uses the whole idea of Incarnum is to have something constant to fall back

You do realize this is intended for Pathfinder right?

Of course, this was my idea...


Turn/Rebuke Undead doesn't exist anymore instead they channel positive or negative energy for 1d6/2 cleric levels.
Ah, if you are referencing AZURE TURNING, that was something I missed, if you read the rest of the feat description, it explains how it works with the channel enregy mechanic. I just forgot to rename it and change the prereqs.


Power Attack and Combat Expertise have further BAB restricting the accepted of 1/4 BAB so you made almost useless feats because the feats themselves won't allow an additional penalty.
I fully understand how these feats work, COBALT POWER and COBALT EXPERTISE do not require you to take further penalties like 3.5 versions, it scales along with the PF versions and allows you to invest an appropriate amount of essentia to gain a bonus. I think these are excellent feats IMHO...


Sapphire Smite, this back in 3.5 with psychic infusion helped create a Pathfinder equivalent now you are just giving free burns for everyone when the Paladin uses the Aura of Justice to spam smites against all evil opponents.
At first I didn't see really what the deal was, but then I realized PF has no Extra Smite feat and therefore this fills that gap, you are right, this could lead to a potential abuse. I will rewrite it to change to bonus damage,


Azure Toughness, you essentially made a fully augmented vigor ability that can be used at will alah psychic infusion
I google-Fu'ed "psychic infusion" and found nothing, not on d20srd or d20pfsrd, could you clarify it?
I'm not sure what you mean by a fully augmented Vigor, the feat doesn't heal you, only grants bonus hitpoints, which thanks to Essentia Capacity levels with you. Nothing too overpowered. I'm scratching my head on what you're trying to get at with this one.
Never mind, I figured out what you were referencing, PSYCARNUM INFUSION.

This to me is still not OP, by expending your psionic focus you can maximize the essentia in any soulmeld/feat/ability for 1 turn.

So if I am 10th level with a max capacity of 3, I invest 2 points to gain 20 temp HP's, I expend my focus and gain 10 temp HP's on top of the 20.
If the player loses these temp HP's he cannot get more, 30 (in this case) is the maximum they can get for the whole day. So if they do this and take damage it is mitigated for 10 HP's but then he cannot do it again next turn as he has already used the max amount of HP's.

This may not be clear in the feat description, so I will add a special clause.


and you still didn't anything to the worst incarnum feat(Psycarnum Crystal).
Point taken, it is the same as Bonus essentia, but worse... I will change it to something better.


In general I don't think you understand Pathfinder's take on 3.5. It isn't just about an overall increase in power it is about customizable options to slightly change play and theme from other people of the same class in which none of your base classes have.
I do in fact, and I am sorry if you do not like my take on things. And while I appreciate the critique, it's usually good etiquette to provide examples or ideas on how to fix things and not just how they are all messed up.


Also I don't understand why some of your soulmeld/essentia have limited uses the whole idea of Incarnum is to have something constant to fall back
Could you provide examples for the specific Soulmelds? I have redone a ton of them, and have no idea to what you are referencing. And I don't specifically believe that the whole idea of incarnum is to have something to fall back on, it's an awesomley fluffed mechanic that is a little weak and needs some beefing, and fine tuning. But, as with all things your mileage may vary.

All in all, thanks for commenting, I just ask it to be a little bit more constructive next time.

Thanks!

Cobalt Power and Expertise, your feats have the same clause as the orginals did.
http://dndtools.eu/feats/magic-of-incarnum--74/cobolt-expertise--372/
http://dndtools.eu/feats/magic-of-incarnum--74/cobalt-power--373/
So, they are the same except they are restricted by the BAB ratio of Pathfinder versions. It then really comes down to why pay a feat and lockdown precious essentia when soulmelds can do better?
Psycarnum Infusion(sorry for the wrong wording) breaks the confines of the often poorly designed Incarnum feats. All the Azure Toughness says it works like any other incarnum feat. The whole abuse around Psycarnum Infusion is that you don't invest while constantly gaining the benefit expending psychic focuses without tripping the trap of incarnum feat rules.
Pathfinder changes, you might but you didn't put that understanding into practice. Each of the base classes have various customizable and alternate compared to their 3.5 counterparts within the class itself. Barbarians have rage powers, Rogues have talents, Sorcerors have Bloodlines, Wizards have school abilities, Clerics have sub-domains and actual scaling domain powers. Paladins, Wizards, and Druids can choose to have a buddy or not without substitution levels....etc not to mention what their new classes do plus archetypes. Now, I don't expect you to go to that extent but I at least wanted to see some problems of the original 3.5 to be addresssed here but you mostly copied and upped some bonuses(Behir Gorget, Ankheg Breastplate..). For example: The Evil Incarnate is still king except now we don't need an expensive weapon enhancement(skillful). I say this because Evil automatically got the Necrocarnum soulmelds which gave the strongest one in the book while easily racking bonus damage in the 30's from melds alone while also having the most soulmelds available to shape because of the aligned soulmeld clause. Lawful and Chaotic didn't have specific soulmelds of their own while Good only had maybe 2. You did up the soulborn but since they have the exact same list except for the avatar it really encroaches on the Incarnate. I never understood why Magic of Incarnum had two alignment based classes out of three when the system didn't do much with it. Also why does every other class get a soul chakra one level before the Incarnate? I mean it really seems like the Incarnate really doesn't get anything special for itself which is what Pathfinder tries to do for everyone.
What needs to happen is give each kind of Incarnate there own special list while maybe realizing that a lawful character will do good and evil things to proport law(changing the aligned soulmeld to only react against those opposite of it). Also, give customizable features one thing which always bugged me was having the soulspark familiar as a soulmeld which unshapes if moved 10 feet away from you. I think it would be interesting if it was more like a companion each being a little different between those of different alignments. Incarnates would choose between this and an aura(a couple more abilities here wouldn't hurt). The totemist could gain special modifications to the soulmelds bound to the totem chakra gained through class levels, call them mutations. Personally I think the Soulborn should be changed to a historical fighter looking to the past of fallen heros for strength. I made a Incarnum Blade fix(War Avatar) but I think the idea of making your own soulmeld can be quite transferable and appealing. Unfortunately Enworld is down for maintenance.
