Psionic powers 3rd to 4th edition conversion self.

I found the psionic powers of the 4th edition a bit confusing in comparison to the ones of the 3rd edition Is there any sort of tool or comparison table psioinc convert a 3rd psionic to the 4th edition? It uses Powers, and builds a system that will seem a little more coherent at least it did to me than the out of the box offerings, or trying pwoers use Powers myself directly. It was, in fact, the supplement that finally made the 3rd edition to 4th edtion changeover click when it came to power design.

It is a bit better at providing a complete rule set that has a cohesive effect. Plus you can always take those and tweak them as you feel necessary. Anytime you have a system that everyone wants to use for their supers the power is off.


I wouldn’t try to compare and convert them at all. Psionic Powers in 4th edition uses the advantage system with positive and negative modifiers the rest of the game uses.

Basically Psionic Powers creates a list of psionic abilities and groups them gurls.

So a telepathy power might have mind link and telesend and telerecieve advantages each with there own costs and even suggested improvements. There are a few special rules to tweak and make it feel more “psi-like” but those are just tweaks.

What do you mean with “other systems”?


And what do you mean with “the power is off”? Thanks and sorry for the stupid questions. Found them kind of confusing and depressing myself. Powers actually has a good framework for it, sort of, but you still run into the problem of having to spend hundreds of points to do things the spellcasters can pull off under Mayhaps that is a problem with the default Magic System more than with the default approach to Psionics?

Magic, as it stands, fits neatly into the ‘massive list of skills’ mindset, so likely it was considered to need no rebalancing for 4e. I’ll admit psionics in 3e were kind of beefy, especially if you had a copy of GURPS Lensman handy, but 4e seemed to make it easier to cast a spell or blast your way out of trouble.

The short version is that GURPS 4e was rushed or running behind schedule and the 3e standard Magic system was just copied and brought over from 4e. There were tweaks and revisions, but not enough to balance the standard Magic system against other methods of representing Powers. For example, you might have improved DR because of a magical enchantment, psychokinetic shield, superhumanly tough skin, divine blessing, chi manipulation, etc.

I was a bit put off by the 4e Psionics section in [Basic] as well, but Powers really helped as it fleshed out the subcategories better. The statement was worded badly sorry. I just meant that the costs were too cheap and the psionic powers too powerful in 3rd edition.

Ah ok thanks now I have it.

By the way I still prefer the old method, but I’ll look at the 4th edition psionics book! Use of this site constitutes acceptance of our User Agreement and Privacy Policy. Log in or sign up in seconds.
