Ethereal blade creates a 3-foot-long sword of swirling energy that springs forth from your hand. The blade strikes as a melee touch attack and inflicts 1d8 + 2 points of damage 2) against corporeal and incorporeal undead opponents. The blade is also bone-chillingly cold and inflicts half this damage again as cold damage against living opponents. (i.e. Max 15 pts dmg). It is considered “magical” for the purposes of overcoming magic resistance.
