Psylock Class



Psylocks having undergone a mental awakening that has unleashed unknown powers.They follow a "pursuit" as a means to control this new power. A "pursuit" will often involve meditation, ritual exercise, or through indepth study of the world around them. The direction of their pursuit dictates the abilities they can grow to harness.

Many centuries ago the world was ruled by the Illithid. Telepathic creatures known as mind flayers, they live in hive minded colonies. Who are devoted to a giant creature called an Elder brain. Mind flayers are telepathic creatures whom solely subsist on the brains of humanoids. This does not only provided them with nutrition, but also allow them to gain the knowledge of that being induces a temporary euphoric high. These humanoids were farmed and harvested for centuries, bred and selected for their mental power which would provide an enhanced potency to the post consumption "high". Over time the Illithid became overconfident in their control of their humanoids, they began to start "aging" their humanoids exposing them to extreme life experiences, gladiatorial battles, emotional events of true misery and anguish, even training them to steal information from other hives. The nature of these experiences further enhancing the potency of their "fruit".

This lead to a sudden and violent mental awakening among these cultivated humanoids. Driving the demise of the Illithids control over the world. The ripple effects of this rebellion have left faint bloodlines of those that led the uprising "the awakened" echoing through the world. In every generation, some humanoids awaken to an internal power hidden deep within. This awakening will begin during a traumatic event or forced out by a mysterious ritual.

Technical summary
A variation on the psionic and mystic classes, the psylock keeps a direct, familiar feel in line with other traditional classes. With one mechanic variation combining the warlocks short rest spell recovery with the alternative sorcerer points. The class and variety of sub-classes take on a similar role as a warlock though not as geared towards area control. This class should allow for a variety of different exciting builds for Player characters. It also should provide unique NPCs for a variety of various campaigns, both in the Underdark or Urban based en-devours.

Any constructive feedback, comments or reviews are more than welcome. This is currently the first draft, so I'm entirely open to both mechanical and creative edits.

Looks really Fun - there is just one phrase i dont understand.
"When you use psychic points equal to a spell slot available to you. At a higher
levels you can add an extra 1d6 to the damage with a
maximum of 5d6." Is this suppose to work like a smite in terms of scaling?

Yes your right, that is a little unclear.

Yes so similar too a smite, you can expend psychic points to empower the damage of your attack. Gaining additional 1d6 damage for expending points equal to a 1st level spell slot, 2d6 for expended points equal to a 2nd level spell slot and so on. This is to a Maximum of a 5 level spell slot, there by doing a maxium of 5d6 additional damage following a successful strike.

I hope this is clearer, if you spot anything else you don't feel is clear or could be neatened up. Please feel free to say and I'll work on an update. Additionally if you decide to play the class in your campaign feel free to leave notes..I'm really keen to hear some feedback.

Hope this was helpful.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
