Autohypnosis (WIS; Trained only)Edit

(Expanded Psionics Handbook variant, p. 36)

DescriptionEdit

You have trained your mind to gain mastery over your body and the mind's own deepest capabilities.

CheckEdit

The DC and the effect of a successful check depend on the task you attempt.

Task DC
Ignore caltrop wound 18
Memorize 15
Resist dying 20
Resist fear Fear effect DC
Tolerate poison Poison's DC
Willpower 20

Ignore Caltrop Wound: If you are wounded by stepping on a caltrop, your speed is reduced to one-half normal. A successful Autohypnosis check removes this movement penalty. The wound doesn't go away — it is just ignored through self-persuasion.

Memorize: You can attempt to memorize a long string of numbers, a long passage of verse, or some other particularly difficult piece of information (but you can't memorize magical writing or similarly exotic scripts). Each successful check allows you to memorize a single page of text (up to 800 words), numbers, diagrams, or sigils (even if you don't recognize their meaning). If a document is longer than one page, you can make additional checks for each additional page. You always retain this information; however, you can recall it only with another successful Autohypnosis check.

Resist Dying: You can attempt to subconsciously prevent yourself from dying. If you have negative hit points and are losing hit points (at 1 per round, 1 per hour), you can substitute a DC 15 Autohypnosis check for your d% roll to see if you become stable. If the check is successful, you stop losing hit points (you do not gain any hit points, however, as a result of the check). You can substitute this check for the d% roll in later rounds if you are initially unsuccessful.

Resist Fear: In response to any fear effect, you make a saving throw normally. If you fail the saving throw, you can make an Autohypnosis check on your next round even while overcome by fear. If your autohypnosis check meets or beats the DC for the fear effect, you shrug off the fear. On a failed check, the fear affects you normally, and you gain no further attempts to shrug off that particular fear effect.

Tolerate Poison: You can choose to substitute an Autohypnosis check for a saving throw against any standard poison's secondary damage or effect. This skill has no effect on the initial saving throw against poison.

Willpower: If reduced to 0 hit points (disabled), you can make an Autohypnosis check. If successful, you can take a normal action while at 0 hit points without taking 1 point of damage. You must make a check for each strenuous action you want to take. A failed Autohypnosis check in this circumstance carries no direct penalty — you can choose not to take the strenuous action and thus avoid the hit point loss. If you do so anyway, you drop to -1 hit points, as normal when disabled.

ActionEdit

None. Making an Autohypnosis check doesn't require an action; it is either a free action (when attempted reactively) or part of another action (when attempted actively).

Try againEdit

Yes, for memorize and willpower uses, though a success doesn't cancel the effects of a previous failure. No for the other uses.

SynergyEdit

If you have 5 or more ranks in Autohypnosis, you get a +2 bonus on Knowledge (psionics) checks.

If you have 5 or more ranks in Concentration, you get a +2 bonus on Autohypnosis checks

Knowledge (psionics) (INT; Trained only)Edit

(Expanded Psionics Handbook variant, p. 38)

DescriptionEdit

Like the Craft and Profession skills, Knowledge actually encompasses a number of unrelated skills. This entry specifically relates to the body of lore dealing with the phenomena of psionics in all its many manifestations; see page 78 of the Player's Handbook for other Knowledge categories and for guidelines on making Knowledge checks.

Knowledge (psionics) covers ancient mysteries, psionic traditions, psychic symbols, cryptic phrases, astral constructs, and psionic races. You can use this skill to identify psionic monsters and their special powers or vulnerabilities.

SynergyEdit

If you have 5 or more ranks in Knowledge (psionics), you get a +2 bonus on Psicraft checks.

If you have 5 or more ranks in Autohypnosis, you get a +2 bonus on Knowledge (psionics) checks.

UntrainedEdit

An untrained Knowledge (psionics) check is simply an Intelligence check. Without actual training, you know only common knowledge (DC 10 or lower).

Psicraft (INT; Trained only)Edit

(Expanded Psionics Handbook variant, p. 38)

DescriptionEdit

Use this skill to identify powers as they are manifest or powers already in place.

CheckEdit

You can identify powers and psionic effects. The DCs for Psicraft checks relating to various tasks are summarized on the table below.

Psicraft DC Task
15 + power level Identify a power being manifested. (You must sense the power's display, or see some visible effect, to identify a power.) No action required. No retry.
15 + power level When manifesting detect psionics, determine the discipline involved in the aura of a single item or creature you can see. (If the aura is not a power effect, the DC is 15 + 1/2 manifester level.) No action required.
15 + power level Address a power stone to figure out what power or powers it contains.
20 + power level Identify a power that's already in place and in effect. You must be able to see or detect the effects of the power. No action required. No retry.
20 + power level Identify materials created or shaped by psionics, such as noting that a particular object was created using a metacreativity power. No action required. No retry.
25 + power level After rolling a saving throw against a power targeted on you, determine what that power was. No action required. No retry.
25 Identify a psionic tattoo. Requires 1 minute. No retry.
20 Draw a diagram to enhance manifestation of psionic dimensional anchor on a summoned creature. Requires 10 minutes. No retry. The DM makes this check.
30 or higher Understand a strange or unique psionic effect, such as the effects of an outcrop of psionically resonant crystal. Time required varies. No retry.

Additionally, certain powers allow you to gain information about psionic effects, provided that you make a successful Psicraft check as detailed in the power description. (For example, see the detect psionics power, page 91.)

ActionEdit

Varies, as noted above.
