A psicrystal grants a special ability to its psion owner depending on the fragment personality seeded in the stone. Physically, psicrystals have AC 13, hardness 8, and 20 hit points. Psicrystals “regenerate” their crystal matrix at rate of 2d4 hit points per day if damaged. If a psicrystal is brought to 0 hit points, it is destroyed.

Intelligence: The psicrystal’s Intelligence score. Psi¬crystals are smart, but their personality trait colors all empathic, telepathic, or verbal interaction.

Sighted: A psicrystal can sense its environment as well as a sighted, hearing creature can. Darkness (even supernatural darkness) is irrelevant, as are areas of supernatural silence, though a psicrystal still can’t discern invisible or ethereal beings. The psicrystal’s sighted range is 40 feet.

Empathic Link: The psion has an empathic link with his or her psicrystal to a distance of up to one mile. Psions cannot see using the psicrystal’s sighted ability, but they can communicate empathetically. The empathic link between a psicrystal and its owner limits communication to strong feelings, so misunderstandings are always possible.

Telepathic Link: The psion has a telepathic link with his or her psicrystal to a distance of up to one mile. Psions cannot see using the psicrystal’s sighted ability, but they can communicate telepathically. The telepathic link allows actual communication. Psicrystals know all the languages their psion owners know.

Self-Propulsion: If the psion pays the cost of 1 power point, his or her psicrystal forms spidery, ectoplasmic legs for a day. The legs grant the psicrystal a speed of 30 feet. The psicrystal can climb walls and ceilings with its legs at a speed of 20 feet. The legs fade to nothingness when their duration expires, or if the psicrystal takes 1 or more points of damage that penetrate its hardness.

Speak with Other Creatures: The psicrystal can communicate mentally with its owner, other creatures, or psicrystals within 60 feet, using any language known to its psion owner (other creatures must speak aloud to return communication, except for the owner and other psicrystals).

Power Resistance: The psicrystal’s power resistance (PR) equals the psion owner’s level plus 5. To affect the psicrystal with a power, an enemy manifester must make a manifester check (1d20 + enemy’s manifester level) at least equal to the psicrystal’s power resistance. The psicrystal’s spell resistance (SR) equals its power resistance.

Sight Link: Once per day, the psicrystal’s owner can see what the crystal sees for a period of 1 hour, as long as the psion and the crystal are not separated by more than one mile.

Channel Power: The psion can manifest powers through the psicrystal to a distance of up to one mile. The psicrystal is treated as the power’s originator, and all ranges are calculated from that location. When channeling a power through his psicrystal, the psion manifests the power by paying its cost. The psion is still subject to attacks of opportunity and other hazards of manifesting a power, if applicable.
