Class Features

All the following are class features of the psion.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Ghosthands are proficient with the dagger, shortsword, light crossbow, quarterstaff, and shortspear. They are not proficient with any type of armor or shield. Armor does not, however, interfere with the manifestation of powers.

Ghost Touch: Ghosthands can concentrate their psionic effects, then deliver these attack through a melee touch attack. These effects trigger immediately inside the creatures mind, causing no external side effects or noise. However, any multitarget abilities cost 2 extra powerpoint to manifest as a touch attack. (I.e. Energy missile costs 5 points instead of 3.)

Sneak: Ghosthands are adept at sneaking around to deliver their touch attacks. You gain a +1 to hide and move silently checks. To begin to sneak, make a move sliently check that opposes your enemy's listen check. When you come adjacent to an enemy, they are entitled to another listen check. If they fail this, you can deliver your touch attack, then run away for the remaining distance of your base land speed. At level 4, the sneak bonus increases to +2. At level 9, the bonus increases to +3.

Light touch: Beginning at level 8, you can stay silent while delivering your delayed touch attack. Your opponent gets an extra listen check. If it fails, you can sneak away without your opponent noticing you.

Delayed Blast: Beginning at level 5, you can choose to have your power activate up to 3 rounds after you make your touch attack. If the target is affected by dispel psionics in this time, the creature suffers no ill effects.

Expanded Blast: Beginning at level 10, a ghosthand can have a power that normally effect an area detonate and affect that area, as opposed to the concentrated attack that normally results. If you use this ability, you do not need to increase the cost of concentrating powers.

Power Points/Day: A psion’s ability to manifest powers is limited by the power points he has available. His base daily allotment of power points is given on Table: The Psion. In addition, he receives bonus power points per day if he has a high Intelligence score (see Table: Ability Modifiers and Bonus Power Points). His race may also provide bonus power points per day, as may certain feats and items.

Discipline: A ghosthand can use all powers from the psychokinecist discipline.

Powers Known: A ghosthand begins play knowing three psion powers of your choice. Each time he achieves a new level, he unlocks the knowledge of new powers.

Choose the powers known from the psion power list, or from the list of powers of your chosen discipline. You can choose powers from disciplines other than your own if they are not on a restricted discipline list. (Exception: The feats Expanded Knowledge and Epic Expanded Knowledge do allow a psion to learn powers from the lists of other disciplines or even other classes.) A psion can manifest any power that has a power point cost equal to or lower than his manifester level.

The number of times a psion can manifest powers in a day is limited only by his daily power points.

A psion simply knows his powers; they are ingrained in his mind. He does not need to prepare them (in the way that some spellcasters prepare their spells), though he must get a good night’s sleep each day to regain all his spent power points.

The Difficulty Class for saving throws against psion powers is 10 + the power’s level + the psion’s Intelligence modifier.

Maximum Power Level Known: A psion begins play with the ability to learn 1st-level powers. As he attains higher levels, a psion may gain the ability to master more complex powers.

To learn or manifest a power, a psion must have an Intelligence score of at least 10 + the power’s level.

Bonus Feats: A ghosthand gains a bonus feat at 1st level, 5th level, 10th level, 15th level, and 20th level. This feat must be a psionic feat, a metapsionic feat, or a psionic item creation feat.

These bonus feats are in addition to the feats that a character of any class gains every three levels. A psion is not limited to psionic feats, metapsionic feats, and psionic item creation feats when choosing these other feats.

Psions who take the Psicrystal Affinity feat may create psicrystals.

2 + Int modifier skill points per level.

Powers: The psion’s manifester level is equal to his class level. The psion’s base power points do not increase after 20th level. Each time the psion attains a new level, he learns two new powers of any level or levels that he can manifest.

Psicrystal: The epic psion’s psicrystal, if he has one, continues to increase in power. At every odd-numbered level higher than 20th (21st, 23rd, and so on) the psicrystal’s natural armor bonus and Intelligence each increase by 1. The psicrystal’s power resistance is equal to the master’s level + 5. At 21st level and again every ten levels higher than 21st, the psicrystal gains the benefit of the Psicrystal Power epic feat for a power of its master’s choice. However, it still cannot deliver non-touch powers as touch attacks.

Bonus Feats: The epic psion gains a bonus feat every three levels higher than 20th (23rd, 26th, and so on).
