You imbue your hand with a powerful psionic ward that allows you to touch or wield an evil item without automatically triggering its baneful effects against nonevil creatures (if any). The hand of isolation does not benefit you if you are evil. With this power in effect, you can transport an evil item or even wield an evil or unholy weapon without suffering any of its baneful effects. However, you still have some risk—when wielded, you have a 10 percent chance to experience a catastrophic failure of the power as the evil burns through the protective ward you've created. For instance, when a good-aligned psychic warrior attempts to wield a +5 unholy rapier, he does not gain a negative level; however, he has a 10 percent chance to have the power fail immediately.
Good manifesters tempted by evil gain access to this power in a power stone.
