Thanks. I'm just gonna guess that something such as "racial" weapons will remain the same and contemplate buying the setting...


They have a PFRPG adventure path (From the Deep) for their campaign setting. There is a free player's guide available for download! It has the ophid glaive in the equipmment section!


Question about Far Hand: Does it allow fine/dexterous manipulation of an object?

Publisher, Dreamscarred Press

I would say no, based upon the description. You're picking it up and moving it, not really "manipulating"

Thanks, that is what I was afraid of. :(

Is there a power that does allow that or a feat perhaps? I have all the books but have not gotten enough use to be very familiar with them.

Publisher, Dreamscarred Press

I could have sworn there was a discussion on adding in some augments to Control Object to do it, since that power is a little more akin to what you're talking about (especially since Far Hand is being moved to 0th level talents), but I'm having trouble finding it.


Telekinetic force is the closest I have found to what I am looking for: a way to perform craft skills with psionics. I was hoping for something not so powerful as Modify Matter, perhaps taking time rather than being instantaneous. Please keep me posted if you turn something up.


So I'm confused. If I go to Dreamscarred Press website, it says...

THIS IS A PREORDER PREVIEW OF PSIONICS UNLEASHED.

If you purchase this product and have not preordered Psionics Unleashed, you will be added to the list of PDF preorders for Psionics Unleashed. Purchasing this product essentially constitutes as preordering the PDF.

So... is the book finished and out and Dreamscarred Press hasn't updated their site, or is the book not available yet?

The book has been out for quite some time.I actually got my copy off of Ebay.

Publisher, Dreamscarred Press

AbsolutGrndZer0 - if you look, those are out of stock. They're left on the shelf because those folks can simply access their download from that link and our web store doesn't have the ability to turn products invisible.

If you go here you can see the finished release is available (that's the PDF, the print and print+pdf bundle are also available at our site).

This book was officially released in November of 2010 and has been available since. Paizo puts it on backorder when they run out of copies and are waiting for more to arrive.

Ahhh ok thanks! That's what had me so confused I couldn't find the finished link LOL.

I came across this quote in the Damage Reduction and Powers section.

Quote:
However, official rulings have been made that spells that deal a type of physical damage (bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing) are subject to damage reduction for the damage dealt of a physical type.

I know this is a shot in the dark, but do you recall where that ruling was, or who made it?

Publisher, Dreamscarred Press

It was in Complete Psionic.

While that is 3.5, it is often viewed as official.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Ahh. I've been searching for that clarification for a while. Thanks!

Publisher, Dreamscarred Press

No problem!

Publisher, Dreamscarred Press

Got word from our distribution partner that this should be available again in print in the next couple weeks. :)

Publisher, Dreamscarred Press

Woohoo, looks like it's finally back in stock. :)

Publisher, Dreamscarred Press

Back in stock! Hooray!

Okay I am really trying to understand the Discipline aspect of Psions. I have read and re-read and looked at forum posts. All the Psion powers have a discipline (school) that they belong to. I understand that. Then they have a level requirement specifying if the power requires a specific discipline. That makes sense to me also. The part I get confused is with the generalist. I can't seem to figure out the powers available to a generalist.

1. Does a generalist have access to ALL the powers or just the NON-Discipline powers?

2. Does the Generalist gets ONE feat at level 2 and then TWO feats at every 5th level? (since the chart appears to show any discipline will get one feat at the 5th levels.)

In the end I am just trying to find out why you would be a specialist vs the generalist. The 0-level powers aren't game changing enough to pick any of the disciplines. However if you can't pick ANY of the discipline specific powers as a generalist, then my question would be why EVER be a generalist unless you do get extra feats.

I am not trying to make an all powerful Psion, I just like when things make sense. Picking a specific Discipline makes sense, you get a list of special power and have to really decide if you will "waste" a feat to get a unique power you don't have access to. However as far as I can see a Generalist is either WAY too powerful having access to everything or he is way too WEAK with never getting to choose a specialized power unless you spend all your feats to get them. Sorry for such a long post I just am trying to understand this class better and haven't found a post like this one.

1) The Generalist has access to all Powers marked Psion/Wilder under the level discriptor.

2) The Generalist like all classes receives their feats as per the rules in the Pathfinder Core Rule book (pg 30) along with any bonus feats stated within the Psion class table (2-3).

Owner - Game Links

Then I guess there isn't any reason to be a Generalist. They would be way under powered as you are basically giving up access to a long list of powers. So as a specialist, you get 0-level powers, accesses to Discipline specific powers and the same number of feats. So to help me understand,

Why would you ever choose a generalist?

Publisher, Dreamscarred Press

A generalist also gets 0-level powers. He also gets 3, the other disciplines get 2.

The generalist gets a bonus feat at 2nd, 7th, 12th, and 13th level, in addition to the bonus feats gained at 1st, 5th, 10th, 15th, and 20th all psions get.

The generalist gets more versatility and more powers known, since those four extra bonus feats either go to metapsionic, item creation, or especially Expanded Knowledge feats. So at 7th level, you could pick up one of the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd level discipline-restricted powers anyway.

The other disciplines are more focused, so they're better at their niche, while the generalist is better at overall use of psionics at a broader level (like his 8th level ability to improve his check against power resistance).

Owner - Game Links

Okay, so they do get more feats, which would help you pick up some of the restricted powers. That helps as it didn't seem clear to me that they did. I also re-read and totally missed the 0-level powers, so thank you for that. I was tired last night and re-reading so much I missed it. I also missed the more powers known? Where does that come in? I thought the powers known was set on the chart and that was that?

I am just trying to understand as my GM has allowed me the use of Psionics Unleashed in our Pathfinder campaigns and I don't want to abuse the system; I also don't want to nerf my character either. I figure if I can clarify it would help me and others that are a bit confused by a complex class.

Love your books, I have all the PDF's for the Psionics and appreciate your work and responses.

Publisher, Dreamscarred Press

Glad you like it!

The more powers known simply comes from the potential extra Expanded Knowledge feats. :) That's also likely going to get an update to include Extra Power Known from Psionics Expanded as an option, since the 2nd level feat wouldn't qualify for Expanded Knowledge.

Owner - Game Links

Okay makes sense. Thank you for the clarification.

I yearn to play a Psion. I know blasters are criticized as not being very effective compared to save or suck casters. I have reservations about how often those save or suck spells are indeed saved against. I think the ability to choose an energy type on the fly and do the same with the shape of the effect much more easier than a slot system would make them very fun to try. I never felt strongly enough about Wiz/Sor to try them out but I do yearn to play a Psion.


AWESOME! i have been waiting for a long time for the finsh print.

We've been taking this and selling it at conventions. The reception has been great and it's a solid book. I'll be implementing these psionic rules in our own campaign setting when it is finished. Great stuff, and I highly recommend it.
