Aligned Attack [Psionic]

Your melee or ranged attack overcomes your opponent’s alignment-based damage reduction and deals additional damage.

Prerequisite: Base attack bonus +6.

Benefit: When you take this feat, choose either chaos, good, evil or law. (Your choice must match one of your alignment components.) Once you’ve made this alignment choice, it cannot be changed. As long as you maintain psionic focus, your attack is treated as either a good, evil, chaotic, or lawful attack (depending on your original choice) for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction. You may choose to expend your psionic focus when making an attack to power this feat’s secondary ability. When you make a successful melee or ranged attack in this fashion, you deal an extra 2d6 points of damage of the type you originally selected if your target is of the opposed alignment. This attack is still treated as the appropriate alignment type. You must decide whether or not to use this ability prior to making an attack. If your attack misses, you still expend your psionic focus.
