Psychic Grappling Consequences
While you’re psychically grappling, your ability to act, attack, and defend yourself is limited.
Required Standard action: The psychic grapple check requires a standard action each round. If you choose not to take the psychic grapple action each round, you automatically fail the opposed psychic grapple check. Since the psychic grapple check is a standard action, you can choose to take a move action before or after (but not during) the psychic grapple check. However, you must make a Concentration check (DC 15) to do so and failure means that you automatically lose the opposed psychic grapple check that round.
No Threatened Area: You don’t threaten any area while psychically grappling, so opponents do not provoke attacks of opportunity from you.
Attacks of Opportunity: Each round that you make a psychic grapple check, you provoke attacks of opportunity from anyone who threatens the area that you’re in. If you choose to psychically grapple on the defensive, you do not provoke attacks of opportunity but must make a Concentration check (DC 15) each round. Failure means you automatically lose any opposed psychic grapple check that round.
