Ethereal Jaunt (Su)

As a free action, an ethereal marauder can move from the Ethereal Plane to the Material Plane and shift back as a move action. This ability otherwise mimics the effects of the ethereal jaunt spell.

Editor's Notes

AC 15, touch 12, flatfooted 13.

GM's are encouraged to use these revised amounts.
