All the following are class features of the mage lord:
Psionic Powers (Ps): A mage lord's powers are those of a psychic warrior, since he uses her powers to overcome others in combat; however, unlike psychic warriors and like psions, the ability modifier for her powers is Intelligence rather than Wisdom.
Power Points/Day: A mage lord’s ability to manifest powers is limited by the power points he has available. His base daily allotment of power points is given on Table: The Mage Lord. In addition, he receives bonus power points per day if he has a high Intelligence score (see Table: Ability Modifiers and Bonus Power Points). His race may also provide bonus power points per day, as may certain feats and items.
Powers Known: A mage lord begins play knowing four mage lord power of your choice. Each time he achieves a new level, he unlocks the knowledge of a new power.
Choose the powers known from the psychic warrior power list. (Exception: The feats Expanded Knowledge and Epic Expanded Knowledge do allow a mage lord to learn powers from the lists of other classes.) A mage lord can manifest any power that has a power point cost equal to or lower than his manifester level.
A mage lord simply knows his powers; they are ingrained in his mind. He does not need to prepare them (in the way that some spellcasters prepare their spells), though he must get a good night’s sleep each day to regain all his spent power points.
To learn or manifest a power, a mage lord must have an Intelligence score of at least 10 + the power’s level.
