A manifester can use negate psionics to end ongoing powers that are manifested on a creature or object, to temporarily suppress the psionic abilities of a psionic item, or to end ongoing power (or at least their effects) within an area. A negated power ends as if its duration had expired. Negate psionics can negate (but not counter) the ongoing effects of supernatural abilities as well as psionic powers. Negate psionics affects spell-like abilities just as it affects powers (and spells). Negate psionics cannot undo the effects of any power with instantaneous duration.

The manifester chooses to use negate psionics in one of two ways: a targeted negation or an area negation:

Targeted Negation: One object, creature, or power is the target of the power. The manifester makes a negation check against the power or against each ongoing power currently in effect on the object or creature. A negation check is 1d20 + 1 per manifester level (maximum +10) against a DC of 11 + the power-to-be-negated's manifester level.

If the object targeted is a psionic item, make a negation check against the item's manifester level. If successful, all the item's psionic properties are suppressed for 1d4 rounds, after which the item recovers on its own. A suppressed item becomes nonpsionic for the duration of the effect.

A character automatically succeedes in the negation check against any power that character manifest him or herself.

Area Negation: The power affects everything within a 30-foot radius.

For each creature that is the target of one or more powers, make a negation check against the power with the highest manifester level. If that fails, make negation checks against progressively weaker powers until one power is negated (which discharges the negate psionics so far as that target is concerned) or all checks fail. The creature's psionic items are not affected.

For each object that is the target of one or more powers, make negation checks as with creatures. Psionic items are not affected by area negations.

For each ongoing power with an area centered within the negate psionics target area, make a negation check to negate the power.

For each ongoing power whose area overlaps with that of the negation, make a negation check to end the effect, but only within the area of the negate psionics.
