You've read the Player's Handbook, the DUNGEON MASTER's THE PSIONICS HANDBOOK . the total energy of consciousness directly, utilizing this inner. This handbook describes over paranormal powers: telepathy, ESP, Now you can really put mind over matter with The Complete Psionics Handbook.
Anyone that was involved should be fired. Tell you what. After I'm done laughing at your pathetic work, and after I stop raging about how insulting this product is, I will sit down with the old Psionics Handbook from 3.
Yes, this comment was meant to be insulting and belittling as possible. Hopefully it will be insulting enough to motivate just one senior editor to XXX on someone's head about how badly they bungled their very simple job Or, send me a message and hire me.
I'll happily do the job your overpaid, undermotivated and over educated team bungled. By myself. For a fraction of what it cost you! I had thought about putting more into the class in terms of background, language and fluff and thought that given the diversity of people coming to psionics from different editions that it would have been a hindrance.
For me, the 2nd edition handbook nailed the flavour of psionics. In terms of the class, my goal was to create something playable that would be accepted like by DMs and in spite of another posters comment about getting psychic damage without hindrance, I believe I noted that the damage should be reduced by two levels e. It also seemed to me that wizards had given up on psionics for the exact reason you have an issue with this class: they couldn't really make in cool and flavourful and special and unique because there are so many 'caster' classes already.
After the wizard, bard, cleric, druid, sorcerer, warlock, etc. The game is 4. See more yet. I think they did have come cool ideas changing one of your saving throws daily for example with the various versions of the playtest materials but they mostly ended up not being able to make workable class acknowledging some would disagree.
The power comes from 'within'. I had a version that used the warlock as a template but I couldn't make it work as well.
Warlock flavour works well also. A praying cleric could work maybe, and a studious wizard is the least. The truth is that metamagic sold it for me. I basically thought, a psion is not a psion without metapsionics.
Further, the very essence of a psion comes down to a very few things: powers spells from the mind , power points basically spell points , augmenting said powers with the points metapsionics and casting spells at a higher slot , and having the characters power level parallel that of a wizard.
This class may not be sexy and it may not have fluff you want but it is playable and you can make the most commonly played psionic character classes from past editions. As of this post almost people have downloaded it See more so it must be speaking to some of them, even if it doesn't speak to your tastes.
Also and respectfully to other creators, I have review some of them and I just don't see how they can tell if their class is overpowered or not. Generally speaking they see overpowered in the extreme.
In closing, I hope this helps with the context of my creation, assuming that interests you and please feel free to write back. This being said a pure psionics class is also needed with paths under it but not like the mystic. Think like a wizard with schools. The Mind path telepath, mediums, seerers, paths under it be devotions, the kinetic path, the cryo, pyro, etc as devotions under it.
The devotion would just narrow the focus of the path, such as only fire damage for the pyro or abilities of foresight for the seer. It adds nothing to the game, and provides no reason not to just play a magical caster.
I am curious which edition have you played most before 5e? This appears especially true for most of the classic psionic powers, such mass fly, levitate, Polymorph, domination, suggestion, teleportation spells, clairvoyance spells etc. This becomes more so the case given that most people do not play above 12th level. What unique powers were you looking for? Thanks again. Why didn't the team just open the Psionics Handbook from 3.
Was that just, too difficult to do? You did it for the rest of the game system! There are only so many ways you can re-flavour a power that takes control of another creatures mind. Many powers had prerequisites that prohibited how quickly they could be selected, and all powers required a power check to activate.
A psionicist was limited at any one time in the number of disciplines she could select, the number of sciences and devotions she knew, and the number of power points she had to use. As a result, psionicists tended to be powerful in very narrow niches, lacking range and consistency but able to gain access to powerful sciences before magic-wielding wizards could gain the equivalent abilities through their spells.
The resulting characters were both fun and playable, but early access to powers like teleport or domination doubtless frustrated any number of DMs. An Unexpected Source. If you wondered where the names for sciences, devotions, psychometabolism, or psychoportation originated, that's where to look. Frankly, it was a good choice. I Am Crushing Your Head.
A new system of psionic combat is introduced here, a method of mental attack that ignored hit points and Armor Class as well as normal scineces and devotions in favor of telepathic attack and defense modes. Psionic combat could only be used against other psionic creatures. Win three attacks, and any telepathic power could be used without resistance.
Most defenders preferred to avoid that. More Rules Than Advice. This page book is clearly and well written, complete with psionic monsters to bedevil your party, but there are admittedly a great deal of rules and powers that need to be explained, so it can be a dense read. As a result, this book also lacks the extensive role-playing advice and character kits of other Complete books. Seven pages are devoted to running a psionic campaign, the interaction of psionics and magic, the intrinsic hatred and distrust many NPCs may have for psionics, and a worthwhile table of inspirational reading.
