Races of The Mind

As anyone reading the "Psionics: Best Four, Worst Four" thread will know, I suggested that we, as a board create an unnofficial Races of The Mind supplement, to make up for the lack of Psionic goodness from CPsi. To this end, I PMed a few people who are good at this kind of stuff. As of yet, only Ghost Warlock has responded, saying he is willing to help, and VT says he might contribute a few monsters.
This thread serves as a HQ of sorts, for people working on the project to post links to their creations, and to discuss what to do next.

Well, I'm not sure if this will be useful,but what the heck.

OK, first point of discussion: What should go into this project?

Most Races Of X books have:

A chapter going into detail on each races habits and background and stuff

A chapter about new races or monster classes for existing high LA races

1-2 General PrC fitting the theme, then about 2 PrCs exclusive to each race.

Feats, Skills and substitution levels for the races covered.

Some magic items and spells/powers thematically related to the races covered

Then some stuff about campaigns among the races covered

Then some adventure ideas.

Shall we follow that format?

PM me if interested on working on the project.

Here's my first potential contribution: PC race/monster.

Is that for new races or Monsters?

And can anyone here make PDFs? It'd be cool if we could make this into a proper download.

The Ameena (http://www.giantitp.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=homebrew;action=display;num=11564596 09), a new race, with associated racial feats.

EDIT: And I can make PDFs via OpenOffice.

A sneak peek at the mandatory non-racial PrC:

Burn the Witch!(Ex)
Whenever a Witchbane Psychic uses a psionic power to deal fire damage to a creature capable of using spells or spell-like abilities, he deals an extra 1 point of fire damage per die. This has no effect on creatures with psionic powers or psi-like abilities, unless they also have the ability to cast spells, in which case, a further 1 point of fire damage per die.

I don't know if we'll be able to include Gith, seeing as how they aren't SRD-legal material. Someone with more knowledge on copyright might know...

2006-09-01, 04:05 PM
Well I've included my Githyanki Paragon in Contents. I think we're OK as long as we don't type out their stats I think we're fine. Same with 'Flayers. Don't quote me on it though, I think we'd better wait for a legal type person to give us a definite.

Here are my psionic racial sub levels. (http://www.giantitp.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=homebrew;action=display;num=11554040 59;start=0#1)

Hmm, well, I'm fair at PrCs. I could try to make a whole race/feats/PrCs/items combination for this, if you want... i've even got a few ideas.

2006-09-03, 10:26 AM
Sure, knock yourself out.

2006-09-03, 11:40 AM
Added my Psionic feats.

I'd be glad to help publish/design layout. (I work in ze layout-ing for a living.)
