Psionics Expanded Update

This power is one of a few that was originally released in Psionics Unleashed, but has been updated since the release of Psionics Expanded to be a Psionic Talent. This changed a few details of the power, but it is still usable as such. For more information, please refer to Psionic Talents.


Your mind lashes out, overwhelming your target with raging emotions, flooding their mind with memories and impulses they are hard pressed to control, rendering them unable to take any actions. Humanoids of 5 or more HD are not affected. The target is dazed; a dazed subject is not stunned, so attackers get no special advantage against it. After a creature has been dazed by this power, it is immune to the effects of this power for 1 minute.

Augment This power can be augmented in one or more of the following ways.

1. For every additional power point you spend, this power can affect a target that has Hit Dice equal to 4 + the additional points.

2. For every additional power point you spend, increase the duration of the effect by 1 round. If you spend 6 additional power points in this fashion, the target is instead stunned for 1 round. Additionally, for every two additional power points spent on either of the above options, this power’s save DC increases by 1.

3. If you expend your psionic focus when manifesting this power, the cost of the power is reduced by 1 (to a minimum of 0), but the power may not be augmented.
