Androids, being hyper-logical, naturally see the patterns and structure in all things, and those who become cryptics and investigate the hidden patterns in the world around them sometimes turn their exploration inward toward the intricate patterns of their own circuitry. These wireminds learn to spread their mind’s energies throughout their biological circuitry, gaining greater insight into their own psionic potential.
The wiremind is an archetype of the cryptic class.
Associated Class: cryptic
Associated Race: android
Replaced Abilities: trapfinding, trapmaker, swift trapper
Modified Abilities: pattern designs
Through meditation, the wiremind harnesses the power of his circuitry to enhance his mental capabilities. He adds 1/2 his level to Autohypnosis checks made to memorize and to recall information (minimum +1). He also adds this bonus on Knowledge (psionics) checks.
A wiremind’s powers show up on his body as tattoos much as they do for other cryptics, but these designs intertwine and interact with his circuitry tattoos, giving him an intimate familiarity with his own abilities. When making a Spellcraft check related to a psionic power he knows, the wiremind gains a competence bonus equal to his class level.
Beginning at 6th level, the wiremind can psionically focus his circuitry in the same manner which he normally gains psionic focus. Whenever he would need to expend or maintain psionic focus for an effect, he can expend or maintain his circuitry’s psionic focus instead.
