Mastery of Chaos and Order

( Player's Guide to Eberron, p. 125)


You have learned to calculate the precise locations of Daanvi and Kythri at any given time, and to use that knowledge to imbue your spells with unusual regularity or striking.

When you cast a spell, you can choose to apply one or both of the following effects to the spell. The decision to add the effect(s) must be made during casting. By channeling the churning chaos of Kythri, you can add ld6--3 to the spell's save DC. Unlike with damage rolls, the minimum result is not 1; for example, if you roll a 2 on the 1d6, the DC is reduced by 1. This choice is made at the time of casting, and has no effect on a spell that does not allow a save. The adjusted save DC is the same for all creatures that must save against the spell (you don't roll separately for each affected creature). By focusing the perfect order of Daanvi, you can choose to set the result of any spell's variable, numeric effect as one-half the maximum possible result. For example, a 9th-level wizard who casts fireball normally deals 9d6 points of damage; choosing to use this ability means the fireball deals 27 points of damage (half of 54, which is the maximum result of 9d6). The spell can still be affected by Empower Spell and other such feats and effects that require it to have a variable, numeric effect (using the previous example, empowering the fireball would cause it to deal 150% of 27 points of damage, or 40 points of damage, as if the result of the variable, numeric effect were 27).
