*This invocation disrupts the connection between the body and the soul of an enemy, making its existence flickers.*

You replicate the spell *blink*, but the effects are somewhat reversed: you must target an opponent no more than 60 feet (18 meters) from you. The opponent must make a Fortitude throw or be subjected to the following effects, for three rounds: it has a 20% chance of failling an attack, regardless of its attack roll, and a 20% chance of losing an object it holds, if it does not attack in that round. Anyone attacking it has also a 20% chance of not hitting.

It can step through (but not see through) solid objects. For each 5 feet (1,5 meters) of solid material it walks through, there is a 50% chance that it becomes material. If this occurs, it is shunted off to the nearest open space and takes 1d6 points of damage per 5 feet so traveled. It can move at only three-quarters speed (because movement on the Ethereal Plane is at half speed, and it spends about half its time there and half its time material). Any other benefits from the *blink* spell does not apply.

By class level 10 the effects become more severe: the blinking timing is more accurate and the target suffer a 40% chance of missing an attack and a 30% chance of losing an held object. Anyone attacking it has now a 10% chance of missing. The chance of returning material while inside something are now 60%. This effect, now, lasts up to 10 rounds.

In any case, someone who suffered the effects may not be affected again by this invocation until the following day.
