Holocaust Cloak

(Tome of Battle: The Book of Nine Swords, p. 54)

Desert Wind (Stance) [Fire]
Level: Swordsage 3 (One Desert Wind maneuver),
Casting Time: 1 swift action
Range: Personal
Target: You
Duration: Stance

Fire trails from your blade as you spin it about, cloaking you in flames that leap out to burn those who attack you.

The flame from your weapon hangs in midair, providing you with a fiery defense against your attackers. An adjacent opponent that hits you with a melee attack while you are in this stance takes 5 points of fire damage. Your holocaust cloak does not harm a creature using a reach weapon to attack you.
This stance is a supernatural ability.
