Like a moth drawn to a flame, so too is the mind drawn to the power of psionics once it has learned to tap into it. Unlike with Leadership, you take no penalty to prses score if your thrall dies; a new one shows up 24 hours later. If your psion is never running out of PP, then things are not fine, but not because ppsionics the psion. Viverror December 30, nwright Divine Archetypes: Psionics Unleashed is psionocs revamp of the 3. You let that pyramid scheme start, you know where it ends?
It’s a class feature. Only penalty for not being proficient in armor is Armor Check penalty to attack rolls, which, depending on your psion build, you may not be doing a whole lot of. Further, we recognized that there were aspects of the system that needed to be changed. You may never spend more powerpoints than you have manifester levels.

I’m a little more usefull in certain situations, since I can change the type of damage I do, but the party fighter and barbarian definitely do more damage than I do, and the rogue is far more useful. Likewise, caught unawares, the martial chars may have psionis edge. As we worked to address mechanical items, we recognized that parts of the psionic rules did not follow the same standards that the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game did.
Only thing in Psionics that ever upset game balance was Thrallherd, in my games. You’d have basically the same class if you just gave an Expert a sword that scaled with its level and bumped up its saves a little. Overall, the damage numbers are well balanced. That can cause out-of-combat balance problems.
It may also be difficult for a Thrallherd to justify a non-evil or non-chaotic alignment depending on your setting. This class may genuinely be OP, if treatment of the Thrall and Believers is not an alignment concern. I’ve found through playing that they compare unfavorably to other casters in a lot of regards. A psion does not get automatic caster level scaling on his abilities, he has to pay more to get more out of his powers.
Definitely don’t allow the Thrallherd’s thrall to be another Psion, who later prestiges into Thrallherd, who takes as his thrall a psion, etc. This is great for forcing a positive outcome in an encounter, but it leaves the psion with all of his per-day power points used up, making him nearly useless in subsequent encounters.
Also, this is about PF.
Ultimate Psionics is a page hardcover book that includes:. The psionic classes utilize the totality of consciousness to transform thoughts, ideas, and dreams into the real world.
The only exception is the soulknife, which doesn’t rely on per-day abilities and is balanced with non-caster classes. Some creatures have psi-like abilities, which allow them to automatically manifest powers without having to pay the cost associated. NOT that your abilities are any better or worse than the other PCs. Be mindful of the golden rule of psionics: I automatically ban all 3rd party stuff from games I run, just because it’s easier that way, but I’ve always liked psionics from 1st ed, so it would be nice to do something with them once more.
StrengthDexterityand Constitutionare also factors. Treat a psion like a wizard: Resources Find the right game for you! Its not particularly balanced. A psionic character has learned to tap into and utilize this internal energy, using it to expand their abilities or even to learn more about themselves.
Please browse through our FAQ before posting.
Been playing since April of this year, we play every two weeks or so, so we don’t level all that quickly. That reality rather skewers your hypothetical arguments. They have updated the psionic rules to match with Pathfinder spellcaster conventions so psions now have cantrip-level abilities. This does lead to something psions can unleaxhed which the fanbase calls “going nova”.
Once a psionic character has learned this pathway of psionics, it often becomes a path they cannot help themselves from further exploring.

But other than that mischief, I’ve never found Psionics to be unbalancing. I think it would be a good house rule that, without proficiency, they take the penalty to CMD as well. And yet, they were not overpowered; they were weak. It’s all balanced if the GM makes the party face 4 encounters appropriate for their level per day. Between these two powers, a Shaper can accomplish incredibly versatile things.
As you said, though, I wouldn’t worry any more about psionic novas than I would arcane or divine novas.
