Astral Weapon

"With the power of the Astral Sea flowing through me, and my faith as powerful as a weapon, I fight as my god wills."

Prerequisite: Paladin class

You become a literal weapon for your god, imbued with an extra dose of divine power emanating from the Astral Sea. As an astral weapon, there are no enemies you won’t oppose, no challenge you won’t take on, for your faith is strong and your weapon sings with power from on high. When you accept this path, the weapon you wield forevermore glows with the silvery light of the Astral Sea.
