Posted the thread on archetypes and this one came to me...

Pattern Breaker
Skills: The pattern breaker adds Intimidate (Cha) as a class skill and loses Disable Device.

Intimdating Pattern: A pattern breaker adds 1/2 her level (minimum 1) on Intimidate checks made to demoralize a target. This ability replaces trapfinding.

Unnerving Disruption: Any time the pattern breaker deals damage with her disrupt pattern ability, she can expend her psionic focus to make a free Intimidate check against the affected opponent. This ability replaces Trapmaker.

Channeled Disruption: A 6th level pattern breaker has learned to channel her disrupt pattern ability into her melee attacks. The pattern breaker may use her disrupt pattern ability as part of any or all melee attacks she makes. This is an exception to the rule that disrupt pattern may only be used once per round. The pattern breaker cannot use her disrupt pattern ability as a ranged attack in the same round that she has used it as part of a melee attack. This ability replaces Swift Trapper.

Sounded a bit weak until I reached Channeled Disruption. Wink

Sounds good

I love this. Definitely using this for my Cryptic, assuming my group is cool with him switching mid-game.

Andreas gave the suggestion of adding in a feature that grants a bonus to Sunder attempts.

I think it fits the theme perfectly.

My thought is put it at 3rd level, take away the power known gained at 3rd level, and give a bonus equal to half class level.

Thoughts?

Ugh. Sunder is a terrible combat maneuver, for both player and DM, imo.
