Using the Way, you momentarily alter the gravity surrounding a small object.

You can alter the way gravity affects a creature or a mundane object's weight. The mass can be increased up to 200% its normal weight or reduced to 25%.

A creatureʹs encumbrance is affected by the new weight of an object. The balance of an affected weapon is greatly altered, thus it is considered one size category bigger (or smaller, if decreased in weight) for every 50% of weight increase for purposes of wielding and damage (PHB 113). Ranged weapons that become at least 50% lighter have their range increment increased by one–half (or decreased in half, if increased in weight). Multiple effects that increase weight do not stack, which means (among other things) that you cannot use a second manifestation of this power to further increase weight.

Augment You can augment this power in one or both of the following ways.

  1. For every additional power point you spend, the weight limit of target increases by 5 pounds.
  2. If you spend 4 additional power points, you can alter the mass between 10% and 400%.
