Been reading through and liking it so far. One question is how do you intend the 6th+ level augments to be usable. Is it only through Power Surge (4/long rest max) and Sublime Power (2/long rest max) that they can be used.

Question with the Mindblade talent. Are you considered proficient with it when you summon it, or does it count as a martial weapon? I may have overlooked it but I can not find anything but the monk soulknife subclass that mentions the answer (it counts as a monk weapon).

This is great work and I am loving it so far.

Hi Brenton, thanks for your kind words!

Yes, you are proficient with mindblades you create. I will shortly be releasing a v1.03 update and will include this clarification in the description of the talent.

I need clarification on the Soulknife's Disciple of the Mind feature. It seems the calculation on the example is incorrect, the formula is wrong, or the writing is not clear)

It reads "In order to manifest an augment you learned with this feature, you must expend a number of ki points equal to augment’s power level (including any intensified adjustments) + 1, instead of the power’s normal psi cost."

But then it says that Psychic Strike a 2 pp cost augment costs 2 ki points, which if I understand correctly should be 3 ki points (PP cost + 1). Then it says that manifesting it as if you spent 4 PP cost 3 ki points. Shouldn't it cost 5 total according to the formula?

Hi Mario,

You're confusing psi cost for power level. If you spend the minimum of two psi points to manifest Psychic Strike, it is a 1st level power. As a first level power, it costs 2 ki points to manifest. (power level + 1)

If you were to intensify Psychic Strike with 2 additional psi points above its minimum, spending a total of 4 psi points, it would deal 1d8 extra dramage, and it would be a 2nd level power. For a soulknife to get the same extra damage, they would need to manifest Psychic Strike at 2nd level, spending 3 ki points.

Essentially, every ki point is the equivalent of 2 psi points, and you need to "burn" an extra ki point.

Would this work well for ravnica or dark sun?
For Ravnica, i’m specifically looking for something that will emulate the memory manipulation, and information gathering abilities of House Dimir.

Hi Franz,

I'm not too familiar with Ravnica. There are several telepathic powers in the Psion's Primer that can let you mess with other people's minds, and several clairsentient effects that can be used to gather information. But there are also many powers that have to do with mastery of the mind over matter or energy as well.

As for Dark Sun, yes. Due to Guild rules, I was not allowed to mention Dark Sun in the book, but it was definitely written with ease of conversion for Dark Sun in mind. There are rules for playable Thri-kreen and Gith, plus a sidebar for reflavoring the psionic goliath subrace as half-giants, as well as a feat that can allow anyone to develop a "wild talent" that you can give as a bonus feat for Dark Sun games where everyone is psionic.

Great work really. I hope oficial psionic stuff from WOtC come to see this to inspired her official stuff for psionic. I hope a psionic équivallent of speedster class like the zerth zenobithe from complete psionic 3.5. I no is a prestige class but perhaps you can make it a acrhetype for the monk.

Hi Jean!

That is an excellent idea. I may include such a thing, as well as a 5e conversion of the Xeph race from the 3.5 Expanded Psionics Handbook, in a future content update.

So this is copper, so that means it's popular...is this more balanced then the mystic? I know that currently WotC is experimenting with psionic based subclasses in UA material. How does this stack up compared to the mystic and also the new UA test material?

So the main criticism of the Mystic, and the reason why people viewed it as too powerful, was essentially that it had access to all of the psionic disciplines - not necessarily at once, but it could essentially pick any up after a long rest. In essence, it was too flexible.

The main thing that this version of psionics seeks to fix is that versatility. In the same way that wizards might have to choose specific spells to become blasters, or controllers, or so on, this supplement says "How do we specialize psionics?" The six disciplines in 3.5 actually slot very well into roles both in and out of combat, and each class specializes in particular aspects of them. For example, the Kineticist Psion specializes in blasting - it gets the Energy Ray talent and a lot of its subclass features focus around basically pew pew blasting people with mind-lasers.

Overall, I can say that having familiarized myself with the playtest documents and now the full release for several months now, this...See more

In the section detailing all the power effects, the 7th-level power “Aura Burst” is misnamed as “Aura Beam,” i.e. there appear to be two Aura Beams, one 3rd- and one 7th-level.

I’m really enjoying the book. It keeps a lot of what I liked about the UA Mystic but makes it more... sane, haha.

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.
