ECOLOGY

Environment any
Organization solitary or illumination (3-6)
Treasure none

A race of former humanoids who have transformed themselves fully into purely mental energy, unbodied maintain the ability through their assume likeness ability to return to physical form.

Typically, unbodied will manifest in a physical form as a human of seemingly regal stock, as a disembodied floating brain, or sometimes as a wisp of light, but they have the capacity to assume nearly any form they can conceive.

Unbodied use telepathy to converse with others, rather than relying on physical speech.

Unbodied prefer to use their psionic powers if in combat, although their touch alone can cause physical disruption and pain.
