I am currently playing a 3rd-level shabti psychic in the first Hell's Vengeance adventure module.
As the game goes on, I will be looking to make him into a horrifying, sadistic psychic interrogator and spy who excels at getting information out of the enemy (both before and after capture). I'm trying to decide which spells might best help me accomplish that and was hoping some of you more experienced players of psychic characters might be able to offer some suggestions.
So far, Solangus' detect thoughts ability has been amazing during interrogations, and his murderous command spell has been quite useful in turning the common people against the "violent rebel dogs who mean to do them harm." During combat, his min/maxed mind thrust has also proven quite effective in combat, and will be even better once I get the more powerful iterations of the spell and a recondite rod to further boost its damage potential.
What future spells* might you recommend for such a character concept? I am primarily looking for spells that aid in (enhanced) interrogation, spying, and a few combat spells that generally support having a menacing "don't mess with that guy" kind of reputation.
