Heh. My entire group loves it. Since we still play 3.5/PF hybrid games it sees a lot of use.

It might as well have been. I have both. ;)

I too have all those books. Only seen the binder in play however.

"Enlarged Blade" moves up the damage so instead of:

Light 1d6
Medium 1d8
Heavy 2d6

It becomes
Light 1d8
Medium 2d6
Heavy 2d8

I can't find it either but I was told it's in an older Dreamscarred Press Psionics book

What Psionic books are considered "cannon" for Pathfinder?

Psionics Unleashed and Psionics Expanded. Here's the thing, a lot of the stuff in Psionics Expanded is all the stuff Dreamscarred have previously made for 3.5 updated to Pathfinder. If Enlarged Blade isn't in it, the it's likely because they didn't feel it right and balanced for Pathfinder.

Anyway, I hope my comparison of DPR was helpful above. I don't think the soulknife has an advantage over three rounds or more of continuous action (and yes, as they have psionic power points a soulknife can have a psionic focus - however, he is best off taking psionic feets like Psionic Weapon than blowing it on boosting psychic strike).


Enlarged Blade was never a blade skill. It couldn't have been, since blade skills weren't introduced until Psionics Unleashed. The only thing I can find that increases damage is Wielder of the True Blade, a feat from High Psionics: Soulknives that requires Wis 15 and another feat to take. And I should know, since the only person who may have written more soulknife material for DSP in 3.5 than I did was Andreas (the split is slightly more evened out in Pathfinder, since I didn't really write much for Psionics Expanded :D), and said two feats were written by me.

Maverick Wolf should know, he did most of the work on the soulknife, so from the horse's mouth, the blade skill 'Enlarged Blade' does not exist (at least from DSP). This player has basically made it up...

I hate to say this but it looks more and more like your player is not just 'forgetful' or 'careless', he is actively cheating.


PsiWiki

This is the only thing I can find that allows for a Mindblade to be treated as one size category larger. It's some sort of weapon hilt and "Enlarging" is an option. However, PsiWiki is a resource for custom material for 3.5 Psionics.

So, it's a custom item and custom ability for 3.5 and not Pathfinder. However, it's still not any sort of Feat or Blade Skill.

If I were you, I'd be extremely put out at your player right now. I hope he was mistaken or something, because I'd hate if he was cheating.


Deja vu, it's another “Psionics in Pathfinder” thread! I am eager to see what the Paizo team draws up for a "possible" revamp in Psionics or Psychic Magic. Too bad Psionics in a DnD-like setting has left such a deep wounded scar caused by a Morgul-blade on so many DMs and game developers alike. For now or forever, I am happy with Dreamscarred's product. Like all things mighty and powerful, there is always a weakness in their armor or robe.

Another product I want to see is a Golarion Campaign Guide. It is sad that I know more about the Forgotten Realms prior to version 4.0 than I know about Golarion in the last 3 to 4 years I have been playing Pathfinder.

Seen everything except the Truenamer here. Binder and Totemist get the most screen time.

Have you looked at the Inner Sea World Guide it is the campaign setting hardback for Golarion. The pdf is only $9.99.

Faerun also has something like 20 years of publication history over Golarion and is the most published setting of D&D for back history, novels etc? Hell, I know more about the Forgotten Realms and I only started playing TTRPGs about 13 years ago.

And I would bet most people today know FR moreso through Baldur's Gate and NWN over tabletop experience.

I want to throw my hat into the ring. I want Psionics in Pathfinder but I want something different from Psionics unleashed. I would love Paizo to release a psionics system but I expect to see them give it the Pathfinder RPG treatment and come up with something unique, free of power creep, and fits will into the existing campaign system. I hope to see something show up when Vudra campaign books start coming out.

I have been a fan of psionics for years. I guess I first became interested when playing 1st ED and the DM had me make a roll with a 100 sided die to check if my character had something called psionics. I remember rolling that die, and watching it roll across the kitchen table to rest on the number 99. So close but no psionics for my character. I was intrigued what was these Psionics I almost got for my character. At the time I was also reading the Dyrenni novels by Kathrine Kurtz,( a good example of the integration of psionics into a fantasy setting).

In terms of Psionics I like both the fluff of psionics, and the power point/ expending psionic focus mechanic. I am not interested in seeing yet another "psionics" system. I do like what Dreamscarred Press has done with psionics unleashed and I use the material in home games.

If Paizo produces a "mind magic" book, I may buy it for the fluff but I would most likely discard their crunch because Dreamscarred Press has already produced what I want in terms of psionic game mechanics.
