I want to make sure I'm reading this ability correctly because I feel my dyslexia is making it difficult for me to understand properly. The "Ancestral Champion" Bloodrager Martyred bloodline power on page 19 of the Antihero's Handbook reads:
Ancestral Champion (Su) At 12th level, when your ancestral strikes target a creature whose alignment is opposite to the type of damage the strikes deal, your ancestral strikes instead deal 2d6 additional 2d6 points (sic) of damage of that type.
When using this power, I do the following when the alignment is opposite of the damage type. First roll 2d6 = x. Another 2d6 is then rolled x number of times for additional damage. Or in other words x(2d6) is rolled.
When this occurs and the DM says the target is the opposite alignment, is this how the power is used: I roll 2d6 resulting with a 7. That means I roll 7*2d6, or 14d6 extra damage? To me, this is an awful lot since it can do a maximum of 24d6 extra damage for an upper limit of 144 extra damage.
Do you also feel that the part of the description where it says "deal 2d6 additional 2d6 points of damage" is a typo that should probably state "deal an additional 2d6 points of damage". I feel like that's probable however I've been happily surprised before regarding something like this in Pathfinder!
Thanks for your time and assistance 🙂
