Description[edit | edit source]
Your dark powers allow you to glimpse the future, granting you damage reduction 10/alchemical silver for 1 round per warlock level. However, once you've taken 10 points of melee damage per caster level (maximum 150 points of damage at level 15), the effect ends immediately.
Gameplay notes[edit | edit source]
This invocation is one of very few forms of magical damage reduction that is not bypassed by adamantine weapons.
3.5E comparison[edit | edit source]
Like Premonition, Dark Foresight normally acts as an insight check bonus, rather than a stoneskin effect. With it in effect, he can never be surprised or flat-footed, knows if he/she is being targeted with spells, ranged attacks, sneak attacks, etc., gains a +2 Insight bonus to AC & Reflex saves, & knows in general what to do in order to be safe (such as “close your eyes”, “jump”, “run”). If cast on a different target, the invoker gets the warnings & can pass them on to the subject telepathically if the two are within 100’, otherwise verbally. In this case, neither gets the Insight bonuses.
