Epic Psionic Class Progressions




Epic Psionic Class Progressions

Epic level psionic characters follow the same epic progression as non-psionics epic characters, except as noted below.

  • For manifesters, manifester level continues to increase after 20th level. However, a manifester’s power points and powers known at each level do not increase automatically after 20th level.
  • The powers of psicrystals that are based on the creator’s level continue to increase as their owner gains levels.
  • Bonus feats for epic psionic classes can be chosen from among any epic feats for which the character meets the prerequisites or any psionic, metapsionic, or psionic item creation feat, as normal.

No Epic Bonus Power Progression

Epic psionic characters do not gain additional bonus power points above 20th. They may still gain more power points as their key ability score increases.

Psionic characters can take the Improved Manifestation feat, which grants them additional power points each time they take the feat. Epic manifesters can also take Epic Expanded Knowledge or Power Knowledge, which give them access to additional powers, and Epic Psionic Focus, which allows manifesters to use more than one metapsionic power each time they expend their psionic focus.

Powers

The psion’s manifester level is equal to his class level. The psion’s base power points do not increase after 20th level. Each time the psion attains a new level, he learns two new powers of any level or levels that he can manifest.

Psicrystal

The epic psion’s psicrystal, if he has one, continues to increase in power. At every odd-numbered level higher than 20th (21st, 23rd, and so on) the psicrystal’s natural armor bonus and Intelligence each increase by 1. The psicrystal’s power resistance is equal to the master’s level + 5. At 21st level and again every ten levels higher than 21st, the psicrystal gains the benefit of the Psicrystal Power epic feat for a power of its master’s choice.

Bonus Feats

The epic psion gains a bonus feat every three levels higher than 20th (23rd, 26th, and so on).

Psicrystals At Epic Level

Special abilities granted to a psycrystal continue to grow as the level of its master increases beyond 20th, as shown on Table: Epic Psicrystal Special Abilities. Even though the table shows advancement only to 42nd level, that is not the limit. The patterns in the table continue infinitely. Psicrystal special abilities gained at less than 20th level also continue to improve.

Psicrystal Power

The psicrystal gains the benefit of the Psicrystal Power epic feat for the power its master chooses.
