Inertial Bounce-Back [Metapsionic]
The attacks that should have narrowly missed the psionic warrior were thrown back at his attackers.
The inertial force surrounding your body has grown in strength, and now will bounce some of your opponents' failed melee attacks back at them.
Prerequisites: Inertial Armor, Inertial Dampening
Benefit: Whenever an opponent's melee attack misses you by a difference no greater than the bonus bestowed by your Inertial Armor, the attack stands a chance of being thrown back at him. When a melee attack misses in such a manner, his/her weapon effectively bounces off your Inertial Armor. Your opponent immediately makes a Reflex save DC = 15 + your Inertial Armor bonus + the amount the attack missed by. On a failed Reflex save, damage is rolled as though the attack were successful (though you take no damage), and half the damage rolled is dealt to your attacker instead.
You must be psionically focused at the time of the attack to gain any benefit from this feat.
As a very simple clarification and example: When an attack misses BECAUSE of the bonus granted by your Inertal Armor, you gain the benefit of this feat.
Example: Jorwe is attacked by an opponent. Jorwe hasn't spent any power points to increase the bonus provided by Inertial Armor so his opponent's attack must miss by 4 or less in order to gain the benefit of this feat. His opponent misses his attack by 3, which is within the bonus provided by Inertial Armor. You opponent must now succeed on a Reflex save [DC 22 (15 + 4 Inertial Armor bonus + the 3 by which the attack missed)]. If this save fails, the attack is thrown back at him, and the attacker takes half the damage he would have dealt.
Normal: A missed attack is simply a missed attack.
