Psionic Disciplines

Return to main skills page

You may buy from among the Psionic Disciplines as you wish, depending on your prerequisites. Psionic Disciplines do not give abilities per level as Magick and Martial Arts do.

Techniques: You get a number of technique slots equal to your base Attribute (Observation for Clairsentience, Intelligence for Telepathy, etc.) per Discipline level. When choosing your techniques, you may buy a bonus towards using a specific technique by adding an additional technique slot to that technique. (Costs 1 slot to buy the technique initially, and then another slot, or 2 slots total, gives +1, 3 slots total gives +2, etc.) The maximum bonus for a single technique is equal to the base Attribute for the discipline.

You must buy your techniques progressively; level by level. IE: You must buy your techniques for Beginner level before you buy the techniques for Novice, etc.

The technique difficulty available to the character is dependant on their rating in the discipline.
