Sacred Burst

Price: +1 Bonus
Property: Any Weapon
Caster Level: 12th
Aura: Strong; (DC 21) conjuration
Activation: Critical

This silver-white weapon is decorated with dozens of golden sun motifs. Runic phrases describing various heroic deeds run along its blade or haft and glow when it is wielded.

The weapon explodes with positive energy on a successful critical hit, dealing extra positive energy damage to creatures.

This effect activates even if the target is not normally subject to extra damage from critical hits. A sacred burst weapon deals even more damage to evil outsiders on a successful critical hit. This burst does not harm you or any creature other than the target unless you are undead; if you are, you take 1d4 points of Charisma damage from the burst. This is a continuous effect and requires no activation. Even if the weapon has not been activated to deal extra damage because of the sacred property, the weapon still deals its extra positive energy damage on a successful critical hit.
