New Third Party Kickstarter and Pathfinder Compatible Bundles!

The Psionics Guide Kickstarter Campaign from Dreamscarred Press aims to fund a Starfinder Compatible hardcover—which will provide everything you need to use psionic powers in Starfinder campaigns.

The Psionics Guide will include the following material to expand your options in a Science Fantasy campaign:

  • New Races—11 psionic races to choose from the curious astreidi, the insectoid dromites, the immortal elans, the serpentine ophiduan, to the powerful half-giants
  • Four New Classes—the iconic Psion, the Aegis who shapes energy into armor and weapons, the Specialist who uses her psionic power to overcome obstacles, and the Integrator who joins minds together into vast neural networks
  • New Feats—new feats for the different psionic classes
  • New Archetypes—including a Wilder archetype and the Soulknife archetype, which use the Starfinder RPG archetype design
  • Psionic Powers—with powers from 1st level to 6th level
  • Psionic Equipment to outfit your character or augment their abilities

The campaign has already funded, but is open through April 18th. Several stretch goals have also been unlocked, including

  • New character options and GM tools
  • Psionic Character Sheets
  • Psionic Bestiary (a separate book)
  • Additional details for spies, saboteurs, and revolutionaries of the psionic races
  • And much more!

Additionally, Legendary Games has re-released several of its Mega-Bundles! The 60 Books, 30 Bucks Legendary Games Mega-Bundle, the Pathfinder Compatible 30 for 40 Mega-Bundle, and the 5E Compatible 20 for 20 II Mega-Bundle are available once more for a limited time only.

So...not to depreciate your Kickstarter, but does that mean no official Psionics? 3rd party stuff is not society legal and is banned at many tables.


Yeah, 3PP stuff like Dreamscarred's psionics books, aren't legal for society play... but then, no non-Paizo stuff is allowed.

As for homegames banning psionics, Dreamscarred's psionics are tightly balanced, enough so that conventional PFRPG wizards and sorcerers often come out ahead over psions. Psionic powers and manifesting allow you to more precisely control your magic output, while conventional Vancian spellcasters are more fire-&-forget. As long as you understand & follow the rules, psionics definitely aren't broken.


Dreamwalkers and Athanatism stretch goals achieved!

300 backers stretch goal achieved!

Only 6 more backers needed to unlock the Familiar Strangers stretch goal!

Only $1664 away from unlocking even more art!

I include psionics in my home games over the fire&forget spellcasters.

I can't speak to what Paizo might do in the future, but if Pathfinder is any indication, it would be more like Psychic Magic rather than "Psionics."

And since we don't know when that might come out and we prefer the point-based system and there's the Starfinder Compatibility License, we decided to do our own system, just as we did for Pathfinder.


(If anyone is finding my updates obnoxious, PM me and I'll knock it off.)

HA HA! Shadow Walkers stretch goal unlocked! Only 23 more backers needed to unlock the PDF of the Bestiary minis. Will the Psionics Guide Kickstarter hit another stretch goal or backer goal before it ends in 6 days?


I'm sure it will land at least 25k. Last days tend to be crazy.

Specially if they make the last stretch a 5th class or 12th race.
