    1. To avoid having deceptions bait out your main move, I'd have the non-godsblade know foe ability detect (roughly) the number of HD other creatures see relative to its own HD.
    2. While I see that you're pressing your failsafe role, not having anything to do for over 2/3 of all encounters is a bit much. I'd modify Godsblade to function for 1 round/encounter and 1/day function for an entire encounter when used instead.
    3. To make #2 viable and prevent the party from being wiped out when this is used in case of emergencies, I'd take out the fall unconscious clause altogether and replace it with a lesser penalty like exhaustion.
    4. As I'm suggesting that the godsblade use its ability more and with fewer penalties, I suggest removing the "bonus to attack/damage = enemy HD" part of the class feature and replacing it with a flat attack bonus equal to your Con or Cha modifier (whichever you think is more appropriate). The defense-piercing, massive damage and killing blow parts are fine but this one could get very unwieldy as it's the part of the class features that make certain creatures of just about any CR tissue paper for a godsblade.
    Hm. As you wish.

    It is done. How does that appear?


    Clarified/added that the godsblade need not be a whole new weapon you pull out of your hat, but can envelop an existing weapon. Including your fists/monk fists.

    I'd recommend gestalting with a Monk or my Aesthetic Sage. I intend to gestalt with my Sage as soon as possible.

    moar edits;

    Yea. I really like Aesthetic Sage + Godsblade.
    May be a bit OP :3 But The Aesthetic Sage opens a battle with its graceful Aesthetic Strike, then the Godsblade finishes the battle with a well placed Spike.

    Or not gestalt. But a Godsblade + Aesthetic Sage team would be awesome *-*
