Discipline: Every Psionic Striker must decide at 1st level which psionic discipline he will specialize in. Choosing a discipline provides a Psionic Warrior with access to the class skills associated with that discipline (see above), as well as the powers restricted to that discipline. However, choosing a discipline also means that the Psionic Warrior cannot learn powers that are restricted to other disciplines.
Power Points/Day: A Psionic Striker's ability to manifest powers is limited by the power points he has available. He receives bonus power points per day if he has a high Intelligence score (see Table: Ability Modifiers and Bonus Power Points).
Psionic Grace:Whilst wearing cloth or no armour, the Psionic Striker is able to use Weapon Finesse with any weapon.
Crystal Weapon:As a full round action, the Psionic Striker may convert any normal or magical weapon's material into Deep Crystal. The item retains all of it's previous properties and size. Only one item may be under this effect at one time. In order for this to be used on another item, the previous one must be destroyed.
Crystal Shield: As long as you are wearing cloth or no armour, then you gain a natural bonus to your armour class equal to your intelligence modifier.
Wrath Strike: Starting at 3rd level, a Psionic Striker can make a melee touch attack against an enemy as a full-round action. If the attack hits, the target is stunned for 1d4-1 rounds. (minimum 1)
Quick Focusing: Becoming psionically focused is now a swift action that does not provoke attacks of opportunity.
Crystalline Barrier: Small blue crystal shards float around you, and increase in speed when you are in combat. Any enemy that ends its turn adjacent to you takes slashing damage equal to 1d4+your intelligence modifier. This damage is doubled if an enemy is grabbing you.
Improved Crystalline Barrier: Crystalline Barrier now gives you a +4 deflection bonus to AC against ranged attacks.
Crystallize: Once per day, you can cast Flesh to Stone, using your effective manifester level as the caster level.
Focused Striker: As long as you are psionically focused, your attacks and powers ignore all resistances and immunities.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: The Psionic Striker is proficient with all simple and martial weapons, but no armour or shield.
To learn or manifest a power, a Psionic Striker must have an intelligence score of at least 10 + the power’s level.
