Wilder The innate power of the mind is present within all creatures. But it is those who choose to take levels in psionic classes who can unlock and develop this immense power contained within. This mental energy exists in many forms: Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma are direct links to the conscious mind, but the physical abilities: Strength, Dexterity, and Constitution, are also factors.
Each of these component pieces is like a single facet of a greater whole. Psionic characters do not simply tap into the power of the mind, but the power of the mind and the body together. The psionic classes utilize the totality of consciousness to transform thoughts, ideas, and dreams into the real world.
Class Descriptions Aegis : Surrounded by a protective suit of ectoplasm, the aegis customizes his astral armor to suit his personal taste and the circumstances of the moment.
Where a soulknife always has the right weapon for the job, the aegis is always protected from danger. Cryptic : Seeing reality as merely a variety of patterns joined together, the cryptic is capable of finding anything hidden, while at the same time hiding herself away, even in plain view. Dread : The dread is the living embodiment of fear, using that powerful emotion to incapacitate enemies and strengthen himself.
Marksman : Combining mental power with thrown or ranged attacks, the marksman is a deadly wielder of ranged weapons. Psion : A master of the mind, a seeker of knowledge of psionics. Psychic Warrior : A soldier who combines psionic power with physical prowess. Soulknife : A warrior who creates a unique weapon out of mental energy. Tactician : Joining allies together into a single cohesive unit, the tactician learns how to turn strategy into reality with his combination of combat expertise and coordinating ability.
Vitalist : Masters of healing energy, the vitalist links his allies into a collective that can share healing across any boundary, instead of reserving it for only himself. Wilder : A natural talent with psionics who channels emotion to wield uncontrolled power. Multiclass Psionic Characters If you have levels in more than one psionic class, you combine your power points from each class to make up your reserve. You can use these power points to manifest powers from any psionic class you have.
While you maintain a single reserve of power points from your class, race, and feat selections, you are still limited by the manifester level you have achieved with each power you know.
The Power Point Reserve Psionic characters fuel their abilities through a pool, or reserve, of power points. Your power point reserve is equal to your base power points gained from your class, bonus power points from a high key ability score see Abilities and Manifesters, below , and any additional bonus power points from sources such as your character race and feat selections.
Abilities and Manifesters The ability that your powers depend on—your key ability score as a manifester—is related to what psionic class or classes you have levels in: Intelligence psion , Wisdom psychic warrior , and Charisma wilder. The modifier for this ability is referred to as your key ability modifier. Just as a high Intelligence score grants bonus spells to a wizard and a high Wisdom score grants bonus spells to a cleric, a character who manifests powers psions, psychic warriors, and wilders gains bonus power points according to his key ability score.
Table: Ability Modifiers and Bonus Power Points shows these calculations for class levels 1st through 20th and key ability scores from 10 to For multiclass characters, calculate bonus power points for each class individually and add all bonus power points gained to your power point pool. Updating Your Character If you already have a psionic character from the previous rule system, you should find that the changes needed are mostly new options available, rather than the removal of your existing abilities.
For psions, you will find that your choice of discipline offers several new abilities as you gain levels in your class, including powers you can use at will, the ability to detect psionics, and an entirely new option for those who do not want to pick a discipline: the generalist. There have also been some consolidation of powers, so you may find that you have empty slots for powers known to choose new powers, and that some powers have been given new names.
For psychic warriors, you will find that you can now pick a path that improves one aspect of your combat abilities, but that it does so without detriment to your other abilities. In addition, you will find that you have a slightly larger power point pool available, and some new class features available regardless of which path you choose for your character.
For soulknives, the changes are more drastic, as your character has been changed to having a good base attack bonus progression, and you now gain blade skills at every even level that offer versatility and never-before-seen options for use with your mind blade. In addition, the options available for your mind blade have been expanded, although some of your previous abilities may now be blade skills, rather than automatic abilities. For wilders, there are different options available to customize the wild surge that defines your class.
These options range from the standard wild surge, to granting nearby allies benefits, to channeling your wild surge through psionic items. In addition, you gain an at-will ability to deal a modest amount of damage. In addition, many of the feats from previous editions that dealt with expending or maintaining psionic focus have new options available, making them useful for both aspects of psionic focus , rather than only for one or the other.
Malwing — Apr 9, , am At the time of writing this review there are 10 reviews of it already. Plus each expansion has reviews and the first product has 13 reviews. There are arguments about the power level and articles about it and the publishers have two more entire subsystems coming out with a Kickstarter money, forums of fans and is often quoted as the only third party publisher allowed at certain tables. What the heck am I supposed to say after all that?! Its probably the most acclaimed third party product in all of Pathfinder.
Craft Wondrous Item Raw Materials Cost: Creating a psionic item requires costly components, most of which are consumed in the process. Using a psionic item creation feat also requires access to a laboratory or psionic workshop, special tools, and other equipment. Time: The time to create a psionic item depends on the feat and the cost of the item. The minimum time is one day. Item Cost: Making dorjes, power stones, and psionic tattoos creates items that directly reproduce the effects of powers, and the strength of these items depends on their manifester level—that is, a power from such an item has the strength it would have if manifested by a manifester of that level.
