SPECIAL ABILITIES

Construct traits

A psicrystal has immunity to poison, sleep, paralysis, stunning, disease, death effects, necromancy effects, mind-affecting effects (charms, compulsions, phantasms, patterns, and morale effects), and any effect that requires a Fortitude save unless it also works on objects or is harmless. It is not subject to non-lethal damage, ability damage, ability drain, fatigue, exhaustion, or energy drain. It cannot heal damage, but it can be repaired.

Psicrystals do not have the usual construct traits of darkvision and low-light vision.

Psicrystal Granted Abilities

The psicrystal described here has the special abilities of self-propulsion, alertness, improved evasion, share powers, telepathic link, sighted, and personality (If its master chooses not to activate the self-propulsion ability, the psicrystal reverts to a Speed of 0 feet and has no Strength score and no Dexterity score.)

Skills: A psicrystal (with its self-propulsion ability activated) uses its Dexterity modifier instead of its Strength modifier on Climb checks. It has a +8 racial bonus on Climb checks and can always choose to take 10, even if rushed or threatened.

*With self-propulsion ability activated.

ECOLOGY

Environment Any
Organization Solitary
Treasure None

The psicrystal described here is that of a 1st-level manifester.

The externalization of a fragment of a manifester’s consciousness, a psicrystal is rarely found far from a character with the ability to manifest psionic powers.

A psicrystal’s characteristics depend on its master. For the purpose of effects related to number of Hit Dice, use the master’s total level in psionic classes. The psicrystal’s hit points are equal to half its master’s and its saving throw bonuses are the same as its master’s.
