Madness Sphere

You embrace the madness that lurks deep in your heart, and can unleash it to drive your foes insane or to sacrifice certain abilities to hone others.

Granted Powers: You gain Channel Discord as a bonus feat, even if you do not meet the prerequisites. In addition, you add Bluff (Cha), Intimidate (Cha), and Knowledge (dungeoneering) to your list of class skills.

Sphere Powers: You can select your sphere powers from the powers and revelations granted by the following sources.
  • Domain/Subdomain: Madness/Insanity, Nightmare, Truth
  • Blessing: Madness
  • Inquisition: Oblivion
  • Mystery: Dark Tapestry (dweller in darkness, gift of madness, and read the tapestry revelations only), Godclaw (boon of terror revelaiton only), Juju (dream haunter revelation only)

You can also choose one of the following sphere powers.
  • Bedeviling Aura (Su): You can emit a 30-foot aura that bedevils your enemies with phantasmal assailants. Enemies within this aura move at half speed, are unable to take attacks of opportunity, and are considered to be flanked. This is a mind-affecting effect. You can use this ability for a number of rounds equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier. You must be at least 7th level to select this power. Using this ability expends one use of your divine reservoir.
  • Terror (Su): As a standard action, you can make a melee touch attack that causes a creature to be assailed by nightmares only it can see. The creature provokes an attack of opportunity from you or an ally of your choice. Creatures with more Hit Dice than your vicar level are unaffected. This is a mind-affecting fear effect. Using this ability expends one use of your divine reservoir.

Divine Eminence (Sp): You can cast cloak of insanity once per week as your divine eminence ability.
