The manifester impresses the totality of his or her psyche into a subject's subconscious. If successfully implanted, the seed of the manifester's mind germinates over the period of one week. During this time, the subject begins to unconsciously take on the manifester's mannerisms. Any time before the seven-day deadline, the mind seed can be purged from the subject's mind with psychic chirurgery or the spell greater restoration (manifesting mind seed again also cleanses the mind).

When integration is complete (after seven days), the subject becomes the manifester in mind as he or she was when he or she manifested the power but eight levels lower in experience. The subject does not possess any of the manifester's physical statistics or equipment, but does possess his or her ability scores in Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma as they were eight levels earlier. The subject also knows the powers the manifester knew at the appropriate level.

As soon as the subject becomes the manifester's mental duplicate, the two personalities begin to diverge. Although the subject starts off with the manifester's experiences, he or she possesses his or her original soul and physical body and is free to develop his or her own personality based on its own experiences. Thus, the subject is not the manifester's slave or servant, but instead an NPC in his or her own right who shares the manifester's earlier memories.

Protection from evil or a similar spell or power can prevent a manifester from implanting mind seed.

XP Cost: 3,000 XP.
