Earth Manipulation: The Bender may mildly manipulate the earth at no expense, but this may not deal damage or impose any penalty to foes. The bonus is entirely up to the DM's digression, (An example of it's use would be to build a stair or move an out of reach object.)

She uses the same attack bonus that she used for the critical hit. For example, Shi deyang can make three unarmed attacks in a round, at base attack bonuses of +9, +6, and +3. If he gets a critical hit on his second attack, he can make an additional attack using his +6 base attack bonus. he then makes his third attack (at +3) as normal.
