Psychic Ambush (Sp)

A preceptor archon can conceal his physical form when he assaults a foe’s mind. When a preceptor archon uses instigate psychic duel while invisible from his spell-like ability, the attack does not end the invisibility effect. All other forms of attack end the effect normally. The preceptor’s psyche enters the binary mindscape visible (although he can assume a mental mask).
