Drain Power (Wis)[edit]

You can reduce a target’s psychic skill ranks.

Requirements: Psychometabolism feat

Check: You can make a Drain Power check to reduce a single psychic skill rank of a creature in your line of sight or mental contact. You choose the psychic skill affected when the check is made. If the creature has no ranks in that skill, it is unaffected. Otherwise, it makes a Will saving throw. Success negates the effect. Failure means the creature suffers damage to the skill rank based on the result of your Drain Power check. You can select Skill Ranks Lost less than the result you achieve to reduce the strain cost.

Result Skill Ranks Lost Strain
10–14 1d6 2
15–24 1d8 4
25–34 2d6 6
35+ 2d8 8

The subject functions at the reduced level of skill. A character is considered untrained in a skill reduced to rank 0. If the character no longer meets prerequisites due to reduced skill rank, certain feats or other abilities may be inaccessible. Lost skill ranks recover at the rate of 1 per hour.

Special: You can take 10 on Drain Power checks, but you can’t take 20.

Time: Drain power is a standard action.

Strain: See above.
