Class Features[edit]

Psy-Cobo abilities focus on the mind and expanding knowledge. All the following are class features of the psy-cobo.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Psy-Cobos are proficient with the wing brace, talon, beak tooth, and sling. They are not proficient with any type of armor or shield. Armor does not, however, interfere with the manifestation of powers.

Power Points/Day: A psy-cobo’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 Psy-Cobo. 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.

Discipline: Every psy-cobo must decide at 1st level which psionic discipline he will specialize in. Choosing a discipline provides a psy-cobo 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 psy-cobo cannot learn powers that are restricted to other disciplines. He can’t even use such powers by employing psionic items.

Powers Known: A psy-cobo begins play knowing three psy-cobo powers of your choice. Each time he achieves a new level, he unlocks the knowledge of new powers.

Choose the powers known from the psion power list, or from the list of powers of your chosen discipline. You cannot choose powers from restricted discipline lists other than your chosen discipline lists. You can choose powers from disciplines other than your own if they are not on a restricted discipline list. (Exception: The feats Expanded Knowledge and Epic Expanded Knowledge do allow a psy-cobo to learn powers from the lists of other disciplines or even other classes.) A psy-cobo can manifest any power that has a power point cost equal to or lower than his manifester level.

The number of times a psy-cobo can manifest powers in a day is limited only by his daily power points.

A psy-cobo 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.

The Difficulty Class for saving throws against psy-cobo powers is 10 + the power’s level + the psy-cobo’s Intelligence modifier.

Maximum Power Level Known: A psy-cobo begins play with the ability to learn 1st-level powers. As he attains higher levels, a psy-cobo may gain the ability to master more complex powers.

To learn or manifest a power, a psy-cobo must have an Intelligence score of at least 10 + the power’s level.

Bonus Feats: A psy-cobo gains a bonus feat at 1st level, 5th level, 10th level, 15th level, and 20th level. This feat must be a psionic feat, a metapsionic feat, or a psionic item creation feat.

These bonus feats are in addition to the feats that a character of any class gains every three levels. A psy-cobo is not limited to psionic feats, metapsionic feats, and psionic item creation feats when choosing these other feats.

Psy-Cobos who take the Psicrystal Affinity feat may create psicrystals.

Psionic Disciplines[edit]

A discipline is one of six groupings of powers, each defined by a common theme. The six disciplines are clairsentience, metacreativity, psychokinesis, psychometabolism, psychoportation, and telepathy.

Clairsentience: A psy-cobo who chooses clairsentience is known as a seer. Seers can learn precognitive powers to aid their comrades in combat, as well as powers that permit them to gather information in many different ways.

Metacreativity: A psy-cobo specializing in metacreativity is known as a shaper. This discipline includes powers that draw ectoplasm or matter from the Astral Plane, creating semisolid and solid items such as armor, weapons, or animated constructs to do battle at the shaper’s command.

Psychokinesis: Psy-Cobos who specialize in psychokinesis are known as kineticists. They are the masters of powers that manipulate and transform matter and energy. Kineticists can attack with devastating blasts of energy.

Psychometabolism: A psy-cobo who specializes in psychometabolism is known as an egoist. This discipline consists of powers that alter the psion’s psychobiology, or that of creatures near him. An egoist can both heal and transform himself into a fearsome fighter.

Psychoportation: A psy-cobo who relies on psychoportation powers is known as a nomad. Nomads can wield powers that propel or displace objects in space or time.

Telepathy: A psy-cobo who chooses the discipline of telepathy is known as a telepath. He is the master of powers that allow mental contact and control of other sentient creatures. A telepath can deceive or destroy the minds of his enemies with ease.

2 + Int modifier skill points per level.

Powers: The psion’s manifester level is equal to his class level. The psion’s base power points do not increase after 20th level. Each time the psion attains a new level, he learns two new powers of any level or levels that he can manifest.

Psicrystal: The epic psion’s psicrystal, if he has one, continues to increase in power. At every odd-numbered level higher than 20th (21st, 23rd, and so on) the psicrystal’s natural armor bonus and Intelligence each increase by 1. The psicrystal’s power resistance is equal to the master’s level + 5. At 21st level and again every ten levels higher than 21st, the psicrystal gains the benefit of the Psicrystal Power epic feat for a power of its master’s choice.

Bonus Feats: The epic psion gains a bonus feat every three levels higher than 20th (23rd, 26th, and so on).
