Psion

Psions are masters of mental power. A wizard’s mystic incantations, a cleric’s prayers, a warlock’s infernal bargains–a psion has no need for such. With nothing more than the power of his mind, he can bend the world to suit his whims. A psion might be a sharp-witted scholar who can call up flames and fling stones with but a thought, a manipulative sadist who penetrates the minds of his enemies and breaks their will, or a whimsical dreamer whose whims bend time and space.

Role
Psions are suited for the controller role. They can use psychokinetic attacks to blast large areas with energy, or use telepathic powers to hinder their foes.

Power Source
Psions draw on the Psionic power source. Through sheer force of will, they can resculpt reality and control the world around them.

Key Abilities
Intelligence, Charisma, and Dexterity are all important for a Psion.

Armor Proficiencies
Cloth

Weapon Proficiencies
Dagger, quarterstaff

Bonus to Defenses
+2 Will

Hit Points at 1st level
10 + Constitution score.

Hit Points per Level Gained
4

Healing Surges per Day
6 + Constitution bonus.

Trained Skills
All Psions are trained in Psionics*. In addition, choose three more skills from the following list at 1st level (skills marked with a * are described below): Arcana (Int), Bluff (Cha), Diplomacy (Cha), Dungeoneering (Wis), Focus* (Wis), History (Int), Insight (Wis), Nature (Wis), Religion (Int)

Religion
While many psions eschew religious faiths, Ioun, the god of knowledge, still holds a considerable following among their ranks. Erathis, god of civilization, is also worshiped by a small minority. Among evil psions, Asmodeus and Vecna are commonly favored patrons.

Races
Dragonborn, Eladrin, Half-Elves, Halflings, and Humans are all suited for being Psions. Tieflings are particularly talented Psions, having the considerable mental strength required to manifest psionic powers.

Psion Class Features
All of the following are class features of the Psion.

Power Points
All Psions have access to a resevoir of mental energy, a pool of power points. A Psion receives a number of power points equal to his class level times either his Intelligence modifier or his Charisma modifier, whichever is higher. These power points can be spent to augment certain powers, as detailed in their descriptions, to use your endow power class feature, or to manifest talents, described below. After each period of extended rest, a Psion regains a number of power points equal to his class level. In addition, every time a Psion levels up, his pool of power points is fully replenished.

Hidden Potential
All Psions posses a hidden potential, a potent psychic ability they can call upon in times of need. At 1st level, choose one of the following hidden potentials:

Kinetic Manipulation
Once per encounter, when you roll a 1 on a damage dice when using one of your class powers, you may reroll it, keeping the result of the reroll even if it is another 1.

Psionic Body
Once per encounter, when you expend a healing surge, you may add your Charisma bonus to the amount of hp healed.

Speed of Thought
Once per encounter, when you move, you may move an additional number of squares equal to your Intelligence bonus.

Telepathy
You can communicate telepathically with any creature that has a language. Your telepathy’s range is a number of squares equal to your class level + your Charisma modifier.

Talents
At 1st level, you know three 1st-level talents. You learn an additional two talents at 5th level, and then again at 10th, 15th, 20th, 25th, and 30th levels. Talents are similar to rituals, except that they are psionic abilities, rather than magical rites, and that they require you to expend power points instead of material components. For more rules on talents and a list of talents, see below.

Masters of teleportation and temporal manipulation, Elocators are travelers and wanderers, renowned not just for their powers, but for their quick wits and cleverness.

Prerequisite: Psion class

“I had one vision. The world set ablaze. And do you know what I saw there? Fury! A great and terrible Fury at being alive. Now you're going to feel the scorching heat of that horrible blackness."

All Psions can channel many kinds of energy. They can freeze armies with a thought, channel arcs of lightning, or create sonic booms.

Paragon Path: Wilder

Prerequisite: Psion class

“Take this! My love, my anger, and all of my sorrow!"

Some Psions are particularly attuned to their emotions, capable of drawing on their rawest, most primal emotions to fuel their psychic abilities. Known as Wilders, they are capable of enhancing the potency of their powers, but not without danger. While a Wilder can channel much more psychic energy than a normal Psion, by doing so he risks overwhelming himself. Wilders walk a fine line between unleashing as much power as they can and maintaining their own saftey.

Wilder Path Features

Euphoric Action (11th level): Whenever you spend an action point to take an additional action, you gain a +5 bonus to your Will defense until the end of your next turn.

Wild Surge (11th level): Whenever you manifest a power, may apply a bonus of up to +2 to the attack roll. However, if the result of the attack roll is high enough to beat your own Will defense, then you are dazed until the end of your next turn. At 20th level, you may instead apply a bonus of up to +4, but if the attack beats your own Will defense when you apply a bonus higher than +2, you are stunned, rather than dazed, until the end of your next turn.

Volatile Mind (16th level): When you are first bloodied in an encounter, make a Charisma check. You may retrieve a daily or encounter power you have already used whose level is less than or equal to the result of the check, and may use that power again.

Talents

Talents are psionic abilities used outside of combat. Using a talent is very much like performing a ritual, with a few notable exceptions. Unlike rituals, talents are not stored in books or scrolls, they are held only in their master’s memory. You cannot buy talents–instead, psionic characters gain talents as they progress through their class, and anyone can take certain feats to learn talents. No study or feats are needed to master a talent–if you possess it, you can use it.

There are also differences between manifesting a talent and performing a ritual. You cannot receive assistance from other characters when manifesting a talent. Manifesting a talent does not require any material components, but each talent does require you to expend a certain number of power points. Most talents do not require a skill check.

Unlike rituals, talents are not divided into categories. Instead, each talent is of one of six disciplines–clairsentience, which includes talents that enhance perception or knowledge; metacreativity, which include talents that create or alter items; psychokinesis, which includes talents that manipulate or create energy; psychometabolism, which includes talents that affect or transform the body; psychoportation, which includes talents that allow for travel through time or space; and telepathy, which includes talents that interact with the mind.

1st-level Talents

Astral Spider
Level: 1
Discipline: Metacreativity
Time: 1 minute
Duration: 1 minute/level
Power Points: 1

You create a tiny, spider-like construct of ectoplasm, about two inches wide. The astral spider can move at a speed of 4 squares and can climb walls and ceilings like a spider at a speed of 2 squares. The spider can grasp and hold small objects weighing up to a pound, such as keys or gems. If the spider is attacked, it is automatically destroyed, dissolving into ectoplasm. The astral spider will follow any verbal order you give it to the best of its ability. It cannot attack or communicate. After 1 minute per level, the spider dissolves, leaving behind a few drops of ectoplasm.

Call to Mind
Level: 1
Discipline: Clairsentience
Time: 10 minutes
Duration: Instantaneous
Power Points: 1

By opening your mind to the cosmos, you can tap into hidden knowledge. You make a skill check with any Knowledge skill. You gain a +5 talent bonus on that check, and can use the check for trained only uses of that skill, even if you are not trained in it.

Know Direction and Location
Level: 1
Discipline: Clairsentience
Time: 1 minute
Duration: Instantaneous

Level: 1
Discipline: Metacreativity
Time: 10 minutes
Duration: Permanent
Power Points: 1

You repair a single object that could fit within a 10-ft. cube. Depending on the value of the item, you may have to spend additional power points in order to repair damage to it–for every 100 gp of its price beyond the first 50 gp, rounded down, you must spend an additional power point.


2nd-level Talents

Body Equilibrium
Level: 2
Discipline: Psychometabolism
Time: 10 minutes
Duration: 1 hour
Power Points: 2

You gain the ability to walk over unstable solid or liquid surfaces, such as water, quicksand, or even a spider’s web, as if they were solid ground. Rapidly moving or choppy surfaces are treated as difficult terrain.

Object Reading
Level: 2
Discipline: Clairsentience
Time: 10 minutes
Duration: Instantaneous
Power Points: 2

By touching an item, you can read the psychic auras imprinted on it, learning about its last owner. You learn the last owner’s race, gender, age, alignment, and how they gained and lost possession of the object. You can also learn about owners before the last one, in consecutive order. Each additional owner to be included increases the time required to manifest this talent by 5 minutes.


3rd-level Talents

Minor Creation
Level: 3
Discipline: Metacreativity
Time: 10 minutes
Duration: 1 hour/level
Power Points: 2

You shape ectoplasm into a single item made of cloth or wood. The item cannot be any larger than would fit in a 10-ft. cube. Depending on the value of the item, you may have to spend additional power points in order to create it–for every 75 gp of its price beyond the first 100 gp, rounded down, you must spend an additional power point. After 1 hour/level, the created item dissolves, leaving behind only a puddle of ectoplasm.

Sensitivity to Psychic Impressions
Level: 3
Discipline: Clairsentience
Time: 1 hour
Duration: 10 minutes/level (D)
Power Points: 2

You read the psychic auras imprinted on a place, sensing the impressions of significant events that have happened in your current location. The types of events most likely to leave psychic impressions are those that elicited strong emotions: battles and betrayals, marriages and murders, births and great pain, or any other event where one emotion dominates. Everyday occurrences leave no residue for a manifester to detect. The vision of the event is dreamlike and shadowy. You do not gain special knowledge of those involved in the vision, though you might be able to read large banners or other writing if they are in your language. You see a vision of one event as soon as you manifest this talent, and then see another vision ten minutes later, and so on. The furthest in time you can view events is equal to 100 years times your level.

Psionic Knock
Level: 4
Discipline: Psychokinesis
Time: 10 minutes
Duration: Instantaneous
Power Points: 4

Using telekinetic force, you can pick or bypass a lock. A single manifestation of this talent allows you to target a single lock, bar, or other restraint–a door or chest secured by multiple locks will require multiple manifestations. When you manifest this talent, make a Psionics check with a +5 bonus. Treat the result as a Thievery check made to pick the lock. To undo bolts or bars you could not normally reach with this talent, the DC of the Psionics check is 25. If you use this talent on a door or lock secured by the psionic lock talent, you dispel it, and its effects end.

Psionic Lock
Level: 4
Discipline: Psychokinesis
Time: 10 minutes
Duration: Permanent
Power Points: 4

You secure a lock, gate, door, or similar with telekinetic force. You can open it normally, but others find it locked. When you manifest this talent, make a Psionics check with a +5 bonus.

Discipline: Psychometabolism
Time: 1 hour

Airless Environments: You gain a +30 power bonus on Endurance checks made to resist environmental dangers of high or extreme altitude, or the effects of suffocation.

Aquatic Environments: You gain the ability to breath water, to speak underwater, and gain a swim speed equal to your base land speed. Any items you carry are protected from the damaging effects of being submerged in water.

Duration: 1 round/2 levels
Power Points: 9

You create a psionic sensor in a square 20 ft. away from you, even if you can’t see it or lack line of effect to it. You can see and hear through the sensor, as if you were standing in its location, and are treated as having darkvision for seeing through the sensor. You use your Perception skill normally when using the sensor. A Perception check fo DC 10 + your level allows a creature to notice the sensor, but they cannot interact or directly interfere with it. Some rituals or talents can prevent a sensor from functioning in their area. If you attempt to manifest clairvoyant sense in such an area, you learn so immediately, and do not have to expend the power points.

Detect Remote Viewing
Level: 8
Discipline: Clairsentience
Time: 1 hour
Duration: 24 hours or until discharged
Power Points: 9

You are able to perceive attempts to magically or psionically spy on you. Whenever the sensor of a ritual, talent, or similar ability comes within 10 squares of you, you are able to perceive its presence. If the character who created the sensor is within 10 squares of you, you become aware of their location. If not, you get a sense of what direction they are from you, and a rough estimate, to the nearest 10 miles, of how far away they are from you. Once this talent is triggered by a sensor, it is discharged, and its effect ends.

Psionic Divination
Level: 8
Discipline: Clairsentience
Time: 1 hour
Duration: 10 minutes
Power Points: 9

You expand your consciousness, tapping into the collective unconscious of all living intelligences to seek answers to your questions. You may ask a single question about a goal, event, or activity that will happen within a week. You receive a vague answer or advice relevant to your question, though not necessarily complete. You can ask questions of any degree of complexity, though the answer you receive may not answer all parts of a complex question. A psionic divination will never give you outright false information, though it may give you deceptively phrased answers.


10th-level Talents

Astral Beacon
Level: 10
Discipline: Psychoportation
Time: 1 hour
Duration: Permanent until discharged
Power Points: 11

You create a psionic nexus, marking the point in space where you are with an astral beacon. At any time, you may teleport yourself and up to eight other willing creatures to the point where you manifest this talent by meditating for one minute. Doing so discharges the astral beacon, ending its duration. You can only have a single astral beacon manifest at a time; manifesting a new one discharges any existing beacons.

Hypercognition
Level: 10
Discipline: Clairsentience
Time: 30 minutes
Duration: Instantaneous
Power Points: 11

You reach into the Astral Plane, drawing on echoes of knowledge and shadowy secrets to reveal a piece of lore or knowledge. When you manifest this talent, make a Psionics check with a +10 bonus.

Major Creation
Level: 10
Discipline: Metacreativity
Time: 10 minutes
Duration: 1 hour/level

12th-level Talents

Phase Door
Level: 12
Discipline: Psychoportation
Time: 10 minutes
Duration: 1 minute or until dismissed
Power Points: 18

You temporarily shift a portion of a wall or similar solid material out of phase with reality, rendering it incorporeal and effectively creating a tunnel through the material. The area of material that is phased out is 1 square wide and tall, and one square deep for every 3 levels you have. The affected portion becomes intangible and semi-transparent, the opening being obvious to plain sight. A creature still inside the tunnel when this talent’s duration ends is ejected out the nearest end and takes 5d10 damage. This talent does not impair the structural integrity of the structure affected.


14th-level Talents

Sensory Beacon
Level: 14
Discipline: Clairsentience
Time: 30 minutes
Duration: 1 day/level
Power Points: 20

You create a form of psionic sensor known as a sensory beacon in your current location. Unlike the psionic sensor of the clairvoyant sense talent, this sensor remains dormant in the space where you manifest this talent. At any time, as long as you are one the same plane as your sensor, you can activate it by meditating for one minute. You can see through the sensor, as the clairvoyant sense talent, for 1 round/2 levels, before the sensor returns to dormancy, after which you must wait an hour before you can use it again. You can only have one sensory beacon at a time.


16th-level Talents

Suspend Life
Level: 16
Discipline: Psychometabolism
Time: 24 hours
Duration: Permanent until dismissed or ended
Power Points: 25

You go into a coma-like trance, entering a suspended animation. Your vital signs slow to the point that they cannot be detected at all, even by magic. The time it takes before you suffer the ill effects of starvation, dehydration, or suffocation increase–you can go a year before you suffer the effects of starvation or dehydration, and an hour before you suffer the effects of suffocation. For every hour you spend in the trance, you may expend a healing surge. You are aware of your surroundings, by experience time at a slowed rate, each year seeming to be only a day to you. You may end your trance at will as a minor action. If you are dealt damage, you automatically come out of the trance 5 rounds later.


18th-level Talents

Teleport
Level: 18
Discipline: Psychoportation
Time: 10 minutes
Duration: Instantaneous
Power Points: 27

You and up to eight willing creatures within 5 squares of you teleport to a single location within 100 miles of your present location. You must have been in to the location you choose to teleport to in order for this talent to function.


20th-level Talents

Remote View Trap
Level: 20
Discipline: Clairsentience
Time: 1 hour
Duration: 24 hours or until discharged
Power Points: 30

You set a psionic trap for any character that might attempt to psionically spy on you. This talent functions as the detect remote viewing talent, except that the sensor that triggers it is automatically dispelled, and that you may then make an Intelligence vs. Will attack against the character that created the sensor. If your attack hits, you deal 5d6 + Intelligence modifier electricity damage to them, half on a miss.


22nd-level Talents

Plane Shift
Level: 26
Discipline: Psychoportation
Time: 10 minutes
Duration: Instantaneous
Power Points: 47

You and up to 8 willing creatures within 5 squares of you teleport to a plane of your choice. If you have been to that plane before, you may attempt to teleport to a specific location you have been to before by making a DC 40 Psionics check. If you fail the check, or have never been to that plane before, then you arrive in a random, but generally non-hostile, location.


24th-level Talents

Remote Viewing
Level: 24
Discipline: Clairsentience
Time: 1 hour
Duration: 1 round/6 levels
Power Points: 44

When you manifest this talent, you focus on a specific creature you know or have heard a specific description of. This talent manifests a psionic sensor adjacent to that creature, allowing you to see and hear as if you were in the square the sensor occupies. The sensor moves so that it is always adjacent to the target of this talent. In all other ways, it functions as the sensor of the clairvoyant sense power. This talent can target creatures regardless of their distance from you, but does not function against creatures on other planes.


26th-level Talents

Metafaculty
Level: 28
Discipline: Clairsentience
Time: 1 hour
Duration: Instantaneous
Power Points: 47

You focus on a single, specific creature known to you, and learn all that your mind can gather from the multiverse about it. You learn the subject’s name, race, gender, age, and alignment. You learn a general estimate of its level or challenge rating–whether it is moderate (heroic), high (paragon), or extremely high (epic). You learn its current location, any significant items in its possession, and any significant activities it has undertaken in the past 8 hours. In addition, if you choose to, you may manifest a sensor to observe the subject, as the remote viewing talent.


28th-level Talents

Contingency
Level: 26
Discipline: Psychokinesis
Time: 1 hour
Duration: One week or until discharged
Power Points: See text

You can manifest one of your powers in such a way that its effect is delayed until triggered by some event predetermined by you. When you manifest this talent, choose one of your Psion powers known, though you do not have to expend a use of the power. The power’s level must be less than or equal to your class level minus four. You also dictate a condition that must be met in order to trigger the contingency. The trigger must be able to be described in a single sentence of twenty-five words, and cannot be an action you yourself perform–for example, you could not have the trigger be a word spoken by you–or a response to something out of character, for example, a player rolling a 20 on a die. Once the contingency is triggered, you may use the power you chose as a free action. Doing so does not count as a normal use of the power for determining how many times you can use that power. Your contingecy lasts for one week or until it is discharged, whichever comes first. You can only have one contingency active at a time. This talent’s power point cost is equal to 35 + the power’s level.

Psychic Reformation
Level: 28
Discipline: Telepathy
Time: 24 hours
Duration: Instantaneous
Power Points: 50

You telepathically induce a state of adaptability and mental evolution within a willing character, allowing it to willfully reshape itself. The subject of this talent is able to retrain several abilities, as if they had leveled up. They may retrain up to three feats of each tier (heroic, paragon, and epic), up to two powers of each type (at-will, encounter, daily, and utility), and any number of skills. A character may only have the psychic reformation talent manifest on it once ever.

Resist Charms (Trained Only)
You can resist attempts to magically alter your mind by withdrawing into the inner sanctum of your mind. Whenever you are affected by a power with the charm descriptor that has effects that can be ended by a saving throw, you may immediately attempt a DC 35 Focus check.

Identify Conjuration or Zone (Trained Only)
You can identify conjurations and zones created by psionic powers as a minor action with a successful Psionics check with a DC of 15 + ½ the power’s level.

Identify Talent (Trained Only)
You can identify a psionic talent that you see being used as a standard action with a successful Psionics check with a DC of 20 + ½ the talent’s level. You identify the talent and the discipline it belongs to you. If you fail the check, you cannot retry it until you have had an extended rest.

Identify Psionic Effect (Trained Only)
You can identify psionic effects that do not result from powers or talents as a standard action with a successful Psionics check with a DC of 20 + ½ the effect’s level, if it has any. You learn the effect’s name and keywords, if applicable. If you fail the check, you cannot retry it until you have had an extended rest.

Sense Psionic Energy (Trained Only)
You can attempt to detect the presence of psionics by focusing for a minute and by making a successful Psionics check with a DC of 20 + ½ the level of any power, talent, item, or other effect in range. If you succeed, you can detect psionics within a number of squares equal to 5 + your level in every direction . Barriers do not impede your ability to sense psionic energy. You can retry a Psionics check to sense psionic energy.

Maybe. Until then, I think demigod's the best fitting one, although archmage could be tweaked to arch-psion with little effort.

It may take a while to get that book out. Until then, this class lets anyone who wants to do all the cool stuff they could do as a 3.5 Psion in 4e.

I haven't had a chance to look at all the Powers and Talents, but overall this seems really good.

Some highlights: the entire Wilder paragon path, the Pyrokineticist's ability to use a healing surge when hit by fire damage, and the Body Fuel feat (HP? Harumph! I'd rather have POWER POINTS!).

One nitpick or mistake I noticed - in the description of the Focus skill, you say something like "Meditate is a class skill for Adepts, Lurks, Psions, and Psychic Warriors." I assume Meditate was the old name of the skill and you just missed it in editing.

Darn it, I was working on this :P

Well, technically I was working on Soulknife (striker), Telepath (controller), Egoist (leader), and Shaper (defender)... Give me a few days while I read over your posts :smallbiggrin: I ditched power points to stay within the new power structure, and chose to use Arcana instead of a separate Psionic skill.

Just curious, you're not using the implements structure? I was going with Staff, PsiCrystal (think wand), and Third Eye (think Orb) for the Egoist and Telepath.

As for "the book coming out"? Given how much of 3.0's PsiHB ended up getting house-ruled by people that actually tried to use it, I'm not going to hold my breath. Right now, it looks like it'll be no sooner than PHB3.

Oh. Nevermind.

Very nicely done, D1. The only typo I saw was in Volatile Mind on the Wilder path. At what level is the ability gained?

I really want to play one of these now. Elocator sounds like ten flavors of fun. Also in Dimensional Flux; it says Blast 3 within 10 ft. Did you mean 10 squares?

My plan has Psychic Warrior as a defender (with soulknife as a paragon path), Ardent as a leader (same deal for divine mind), and lurk as a striker.



Just curious, you're not using the implements structure? I was going with Staff, PsiCrystal (think wand), and Third Eye (think Orb) for the Egoist and Telepath.
I decided not to. Part of psionics's neatness in 3.5 is that, unlike arcane and divine magic, there's no dependance on props like that at all, and preserving the spirit of the 3.5 Psion was a big part of what I tried to do.

1) I'd suggest having something akin to implements, or else the damage of your powers will fall behind the curve of other classes; It is assumed, balance-wise, that by certain levels you will have +x to attack rolls and damage and +xd6 on criticals. Weapons and implements cover this, and this class needs something to keep up.

2) If you get me an unformatted word doc, I can format this a PDF-ify it. Only problem'll be a lack of pictures, so it might seem rather barebones. email me with the doc and any formatting preferences.

dragonabove@gmail.com

Other'n that, You'll want to make sure that Talents are less powerful than equal-level rituals - their cost is an easily renewable resource instead of gold. I trust you took this into account, though, so I'm stating it just to reinforce it. :smallbiggrin:

Which is where I was coming from. This has been an issue with my variant on Soulknife and Shaper too, although I think I found the solution for the Shaper (doing it with feats, and giving Shapers bonus feats that have to come from the Ectoplasm list).


Mind Burn
Prequisites: Cha 13
Benefit: You gain a +1 feat bonus to damage rolls whenever you use a power with the psychic keyword. This bonus increases to +2 at 11th level, and to +3 at 21st level.

You may want to rebalance this relative to the Dark Fury feat (which gives the same bonus to psychic AND necrotic).


Power of Opportunity
Prerequisites: Combat Reflexes, Dex 13, Psion class.
Benefit: Whenever you could make an attack of opportunity, you may make it with one of your at-will powers.

I think the new way to express this is to say the power can be used as a basic melee attack.

1) I'd suggest having something akin to implements, or else the damage of your powers will fall behind the curve of other classes; It is assumed, balance-wise, that by certain levels you will have +x to attack rolls and damage and +xd6 on criticals. Weapons and implements cover this, and this class needs something to keep up.
I might do up some feats that let you spend power points for that.
Added the Endow Power class feature, which hopefully balances this.

Hmm, something like this is what I need for the Soulknife. I'll have to toy with it some :)

Good work here, D1. Don't let my nitpicking discourage you, it's my nature :smallredface:

No problem, good critics always improve this kind of stuff.

Now the Psion is on the OTHER side of the power spectrum; It's too powerful.

Where everyone else has to find or pay money for those bonuses, a Psion gets it for free. I really think implements should be in; Dorje, Psicrystal, Third eye - there are several you could use, and all it takes is making up some magic items and adding "Implement" to the keyword line of most of your powers

For soulknives, implements could be Crystal Hilts, Focus Bands (worn on the wrists), etc.

If you really, REALLY want Psions without implements, make up a feat tree called "Implementless Caster"; One for each tier, and they essentially do what endow power does, at the cost of three feats. The first feat gets you the +1 and +2 at the appropriate levels, the second +3 and +4, and the third +5 and +6.

Okay, shall do.

For Dimension Swap, does it have to be a willing ally?

Oh my. This is incredible. Somebody put this on PDF!

HA! I love the pyrokineticist quote. What a silly, silly boss.

Small note: The Focus skill DCs should be based on level, not set DCs. A DC 25 is pretty much automatic for a level 30 character that's trained, and the effect is just as useful and powerful then as it is at level 1. The DC should either be left to the DM, like the DCs most skill checks and skill challenge rolls, or it should be based on monster/character level. For example, the DC for the fear removal could be some number plus the level of the monster that caused the effect, or plus half the level, or however it works out.

First off, really great stuff here. This is some solid stuff!

The nitpicks I have mostly revolve around power points. I love the idea, but it seems like they're not quite right. It feels like there wouldn't be enough of them to go 'round at low levels (when at max you'd have like, 5 at 1st), but at high levels you have a ridiculous amount (like 300 at 30th). I would change the rate you get points from level X mod (I think 4ed has largely moved away from using multiplication, as it generally leads to degeneracy) to something like (base number) + level + Mod. That would front load the power points in the beginning, while keeping them as a valuable scarce resource throughout progression. I would also suggest that power points fully refresh at each extended rest. This would also impress upon the players that PPs are a scarce resource, at least until body fuel :smalltongue: . In the context of the changes above, I love body fuel, always good to get players to foolishly burn away their healing.

I also disagree with Talents costing power points instead of actual material components. Doing this is severely unbalancing to the game from a non-combat point of view. It wreaks havoc on wealth-by-level, and replicates nearly everything a wizard can do with rituals (that he also has to spend party resources on).

Once again, this is excellent stuff, I really enjoyed reading it. Send me a PM if you'd like to discuss more :smallbiggrin:

I understand where you're coming from, Siberys, but now any Psion that doesn't take those feats is utterly screwed - which may have been sort of okay under the 3e paradigm, but certainly doesn't fly in the 4e paradigm.

Instead, why not make a class feature that kicks in at the appropriate levels, requiring the psion to complete a ritual of meditation that involves psionic paraphernalia costing equal to whatever a wizard would pay for all the required implements? That keeps the psion balanced with a wizard of the same level and wealth, and also preserves the "implementless" feel of the psion.
