I like a converted character to have as much of his original capability as is possible!

The other players are bored while you’re taking up all the combat time and attention. I would have to have brain damage to choose to hamdbook with these rules!

If the player attempts to teleport to an exact location, the success rate is quartered. If, for example, a psionicist tries to learn about a target’s death, an old man might be seen dying peacefully in his sleep, or the psionicist might see a group of satisfied trolls sitting around a dinner table. You just can’t argue it wasn’t overpowered and ridiculous. The fdition mentality where the player and the DM declare their psionic actions using index cards or something which is what we always editin when it came up was pretty stupid.

This item doesn’t belong on this page. Second edition has all of that in spades.

Difference between 3E and 3. Sleep restores the hitpoints at the rate of one every hour.

Difference 2n 3E and 3. In either case, you randomly rolled what your power was, and it could be crap like disintegration. If successful, the empath can alter the enemy’s reaction one point either way, or alter the severity of an emotion one level either way passionate, fervent, strong, mild, weak, indifferent, weakly opposed, mildly opposed, strongly opposed, fervently opposed, passionately opposed.


Moving a skipping stone around was cheap and easy.

PCs were better than NPCs because they all are special. Some psionicists learn of their skills as children, and some find out only after half a century of solitude.

Once such an attempt is failed, the psionicists must wait a full hour before making another attempt. If a power fails due to a success roll of that gives misdirection or misinformation does not apply to levitation etcthen the power will yield the same error for the next 24 hours. It was inherently unbalanced, and kept in check by inherently unbalanced and unfair rules that basically ensured that any psionic PC would die horribly if confronted by a psionic monster.

Any player wanting to play a non-multiclassed psionicist must either chose to hhandbook a begger or equivelant, or must chose a type of unskilled labor to be good at. Other spellcasters often as&d just an attack roll or more often just a save – and higher level spells offered no save. That quote lists the times that you can check to see if you’re a wild talent, not the process for unlocking the talent. The success rate is lowered by double the target’s intelligence score.

Figure out what Psionicists do well that Magic-Users and Clerics don’t do, so people aren’t all stepping on each others’ toes. This really jump starts at epic levels but thats for a different thread. Some very strange powers Reset Fields Log in.

The results described are 3. They were a mechanic that, for the most part, denoted only extreme failure or extreme success, in about equal amounts, and the penalty for extreme failure was usually worse then the benefit of success.

Did power checks add or subtract from the experience? If the psionicist is hit succesfully, the force field is broken. The psionicist’s spirit must travel back to the body, so paionics is a good idea to a&dd plenty of hit points for the return trip. Prior to Dark Sun’s proficiency of “Crystal Focus”, the only way to improve a power score was to get rid of one of your possible selections.


The use of psionic powers involves a variant of the hanvbook system developed in the 2nd Edition rules. They can not heal anyone else’s body with this power. If once check fails to pass through barriers, the psionicist can not pass through another barrier not already passed through for 24 hours.

The field can be extended to other creatures, but its effectiveness and chance of success is devided handbookk the number editoon creatures affected.

That is a pretty ahndbook harmless process. The target must be seen by the psionicist. Choosing a given defense mode may actually mean you pay a spell to get a penalty on the save, but it will still be better than being defenseless. That percentile is raised each level the psionicist has that ability by the Modifier in the power description.

No power comes without a cost. If exposed to psionlcs desiese for a long time, they must roll their saving throw once a day. So if the party had a chance to rest eight hours so the Magic-User could memorize just the right spell, the Magic-User suddenly has incredible versatility.

The walls can confuse or madden anyone within, and cause great fear. Editioj location must have been phisically seen by the psionicist, or chances are reduced to one percent for every three psionicist levels, and the drain rate is trippled.

If moved in air, the weight must be lower than 10x the level. Not what I meant. Using this power, the psionicist can also attempt to damage inanimate, nonmagical objects.
