Psi Bender[edit]

Making a Psi Bender[edit]

Psi benders are usually well received by other party members, as the psionic weapons that they create are useful in combat and their psionic powers are strong additions to spellcasters.

Races: Humans, Halflings, and elves, being accustomed to change, take this class more than other races.

Alignment: Any non-lawful.

Starting Gold: 3d4×10 gp (75 gp).
