Mythic Hero's Handbook - Oracle of Life Error

Advice and Rules Questions

So the mythic class ability of Lifesense states, "This works as blindsight, rather than blindsense," (pg.90)... but lifesense already operates as blindsight link.

I have an oracle of life in the group. Would anyone have any advice for how to alter this with an appropriate mythic upgrade?

A common improvement to sensory powers is expanding the range - doubling it to 60 feet wouldn't be particularly bad. Alternatively, you could add some additional scanning effects to it - maybe a free Deathwatch on anything they can see with it, if you don't mind players having access to that.

Thank you for the suggestions! I had thought doubling it might not feel mythic enough within the context of the book.

I might go with something like spending a mythic point to make it function as deathwatch for 1--or maybe 10--minute(s). That would be a cool benefit but not so strong as a constant deathwatch!

Don't underestimate the usefulness of being able to notice living foes from twice as far away. XD As a third option, you could also expand it to let them detect undead entities (and discern whether they're living or undead), since undead are fairly common foes and all.

Expending a Mythic Point for Deathwatch is probably not a good choice. A smart Oracle probably took Inspired Spell in the first place (you're using the FAQ for that, right?), which already gives them access to Deathwatch for 1 MP even if they don't know the spell, and it would be a bit redundant if their Lifesense power did the same thing.

Oh that's a great point, haha. I was wrapped up in the mythic class abilities and completely spaced the path features... and we do indeed use the errata.

I quite like the undead detection, as they have a prominent role where our (homebrew setting) game is taking place.

Thanks again for your suggestions!
