Class Features[edit]

All of the following are Class Features of the psychic archer prestige class.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: A psychic archer is proficient with all simple and martial weapons, light armor, medium armor, and shields. As with any psionic class armor does not interfere with the manifestatin of powers.

Enhance Arrow: At 1st level, every nonmagical arrow a psychic archer nocks and lets fly becomes psionic, gaining a +1 enhancement bonus. Unlike psionic weapons created by normal means, the archer need not spend experience points or gold pieces to accomplish this task. However, an archer’s magic arrows only function for the manifester. For every two levels the character advances past 1st level in the prestige class, the psionic arrows they create gain +1 greater potency (+1 at 1st level, +2 at 3rd level, +3 at 5th level, +4 at 7th level, and +5 at 9th level).

Imbue Arrow: At 2nd level, a psychic archer gains the ability to place an area effect power upon an arrow. When the arrow is fired, the spell’s area is centered on where the arrow lands, even if the power could normally be centered only on the psion. This ability allows the archer to use the bow’s range rather than the power’s range. It takes a standard action to cast the power and fire the arrow. The arrow must be fired in the round the power is manifest, or the power is wasted.

Seeker Arrow: At 4th level, a psychic archer can launch an arrow once per day at a target known to them within range, and the arrow travels to the target, even around corners. Only an unavoidable obstacle or the limit of the arrow’s range prevents the arrow’s flight. This ability negates cover and concealment modifiers, but otherwise the attack is rolled normally. Using this ability is a standard action (and shooting the arrow is part of the action).

Phase Arrow: At 6th level, a psychic archer can launch an arrow once per day at a target known to her within range, and the arrow travels to the target in a straight path, passing through any nonmagical barrier or wall in its way. (Any magical barrier stops the arrow.) This ability negates cover, concealment, and even armor modifiers, but otherwise the attack is rolled normally. Using this ability is a standard action (and shooting the arrow is part of the action).

Hail of Arrows: In lieu of their regular attacks, once per day a psychic archer of 8th level or higher can fire an arrow at each and every target within range, to a maximum of one target for every psychic archer level they have earned. Each attack uses the archer’s primary attack bonus, and each enemy may only be targeted by a single arrow.

Arrow of Death: At 10th level, a psychic archer can create an arrow of death that forces the target, if damaged by the arrow’s attack, to make a DC 20 Fortitude save or be slain immediately. It takes one day to make an arrow of death, and the arrow only functions for the psychic archer who created it. The arrow of death lasts no longer than one year, and the archer can only have one such arrow in existence at a time.
