Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Troy Gorda rated it it was ok Mar 11, As previously mentioned, the schools are broken into Sciences vomplete Devotions, where Sciences are supposed to be your bigger, more powerful abilities that get shit done, and Devotions are more like your minor cantrips that might be situationally useful but aren’t a great power in every circumstance.

That’s all there is to these things, they just latch onto psionicists and drain their PSPs every time the psionicist tries to manifest a power.

I guess Steve Winters wanted to make sure that mute, quadriplegic psionicists weren’t left out in the cold. Another section where the DM is told to use their best judgement regarding how this power should affect objects of varying sizes and material. Or, you could just disintegrate their skull, but hey don’t let me tell you how to have a good time. Denise Macpherson rated it did not like it Sep 09, Like I’ve said about other 2nd edition books, this isn’t a necessary addition to your collection.

But yeah, I’d treat it as psonics natural weapon. Time Anchor – Pretty simple buff that prevents others from teleporting you against your will. Chameleon Power – Just like it says on the label.

The Complete Psionics Handbook

Share Strength – A terrible mix of enhanced strength and lend health where you deal yourself temporary strength damage to make an ally stronger. Why this was even included is a mystery that’s too dumb to solve. Body Control – Your body adapts to exist perfectly in a hostile environment, taking no damage or other adverse effects. April Learn how and when to remove this template message. At any rate, I’m not going to bother listing and defining every Science and Devotion because most of them either do exactly what they say on the label Domination is a straight copy of the Wizard spell dominate person except shittier because you have to constantly expend PSPs, etc.


Also, if you psionicist wants, you can voluntarilly receive information that is less specific than what the power check result would have provided; why you would do this is not explained.

I am fairly certain that a non-psionic skill that any character can spend a non-weapon proficiency on can completely replicate this power. Interestingly, they come back in a later chapter to little actual effect! At least the Clairsentience powers didn’t fucking include Clairtastience. You can also take other people with you if you pay more PSPs. Many other comments mention Dark Sun, and indeed this setting is great for complste since it’s integrated completely with the material.

Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers. You describe a specific th of action to the DM and then depending on how well you roll, he may or may not give lsionics some indication of how that specific course of action might turn out.

Greyhawk – Psionics has been on Oerth forever, or at least since an illithid spaceship crashed on Oerth ages ago. This power actually lets you recall your positioning well enough to retrace your steps back to the fixed starting point.

Moving heavier things is harder and trying to attack with a psionically levitated weapon takes a haandbook penalty to your THAC0 but I guess it sounds cool and hopefully that’s enough to offset the fact that doing anything remotely interesting with this power creates such a significant penalty to your actions that you’re not likely to actually succeed at doing anything. Books by Steve Winter.

They can only be removed by a cure disease spell, or by not using any PSPs until all the parasites starve and die, ckmplete the text says can take d4 months. I guess you could argue that someone could willingly let you leech their hit points but I hancbook see that justification in the book so I’m calling bullshit on that logic. There’s not any special rules for natural attacks in 2E, at least that I could find. Some books like the Fighter’s Handbook and Combat and Tactics are a bit more are generous and allow multiclass fighters to specialize, but that’s your call as a DM.


2E 2nd Edition AD&D Complete Psionic Handbook – Animal Affinity

Wake of the Ravager Dark Sun Online: Basically this power is of marginal usefulness if your psionicist is a special snowflake in the campaign, but of considerably less usefulness if the DM populates the rest of the world with other psionicists or psionic empowered monsters. Worse than contingency for many reasons, but specifically because even if this shitbird power fires off, you still have to then spend PSPs and make a power roll to safely manifest teleport and escape danger.

Don’t tell me that Molecular Xomplete heats things up by exciting their molecules or Molecular Rearrangement turns lead into gold by changing metal’s molecular structure in a world where owlbears exist and wizards psiobics fire from their hands especially since lead and gold are both atoms Or, you could just play a cleric in the first place and skip this pathetic waste of a power.

Clairvoyance – As above, but seeing not hearing.

See Sound – There’s no actual mechanical benefit to using this power. Read more Read less. Aura Alteration – You can mask a given character’s alignment for d6 hours. Well, rather than deal with that waste of shit power, you can instead learn the superior invisibility Science, which functions similarly, only with the added benefit of masking your sound and smell too although you can still be tasted? Spelljammer – Psionic powers function normally in all forms of space and are super common.
