- 1.2 Campaign Information
To know Nevervoid is to know madness. Few understand this better then Nevervoid Mindwalker's, who seek out the dark abyss of Nevervoid, hoping to learn. What they wish to learn varies from person to person, but what they end up learning is constant. They are taught isolation and terror, the likes of which send most insane. The difference between those who simply lose their mind and Mindwalker's, is the fact that Midwalker's regain their sanity, with full memory of their madness. This gives a unique insight into how the mind works, bestowing upon them new an unusual ways to corrupt it.
Making a Nevervoid Mindwalker
The Nevervoid Mindwalker doesn't simply scare his enemies, he takes control of them. Most have an insatiable thirst for knowledge, and exploit others to get it. He has learned that it's easier to get information out of someone if they believe in you, as opposed to fearing you. But as both work, A Nevervoid Mindwalker does both, eventually attracting followers. They also learn to directly affect a persons mind, causing various effects, from confusion, to madness, to blindness.
Abilities: Intelligence is important, for all of a Nevervoid Mindwalker's powers are intelligence based. And Wisdom is also needed, for what use is knowledge, without the wisdom to use it.
Races: Nevervoid can reach to to any race, although it is more spontaneous in humans. It is less likely that a Monstrous race will seek out Nevervoid for knowledge, than it is for other races.
Alignment: Any evil.

His race may also provide bonus power points per day, as may certain feats and items.

The number of times a Nevervoid Mindwalker can manifest powers in a day is limited only by his daily power points. A Nevervoid Mindwalker simply knows his powers, they are ingrained in his mind. He does not need to prepare them (in the way some spell casters prepare their spells), though he must get a good nights rest each day to recover all his spend power points.

Maximum Power Level Known: This column determines the highest level power he can learn at this level.
To learn or manifest a power, a Nevervoid Mindwalker must have a Intelligence score of at least 10 + the power’s level.
Bonus Feat: At first level, then every four levels (4th, 8th, 12th, 16th, 20th), a Nevervoid Mindwalker gets a bonus feat. This must be a Nevervoid or Psionic feat.
Cultists (Ex): At fifth level, a Nevervoid Mindwalker can activly send out a subtle psychic call for servants, and that call is answered. Essentially, the character gains something akin to the leadership feat, with a few important differences.
Those who answer a Nevervoid Mindwalker's call are not known as cohorts and followers, they are called Diciples and Cultists respectively. They do not appear because they admire the character and want to serve him, but because hidden psychic energies force a fear-based respect for him. As with the Leadership feat, a Nevervoid Mindwalker has a Leadership score that determines the highest-level Diciple and Cultists he can attract. A Nevervoid Mindwalker's Leadership score is equal to his character level + his Int modifier. This score is affected by the modifier's mentioned below (as opposed to the ones described in the Leadership feat). As with the Leadership feat, the called deciple's level is limited, even if the character's leadership score would indicate a higher-level deciple. Unlike the leadership feat, the level limit of a deciple is equal to the character's level minus 1 (not minus 2, as is true for cohorts).
A Nevervoid Mindwalker cannot take the Leadership feat after this ability is gained. If the character already has it, the feat is lost and replaced by this ability; those who were previously cohorts and followers go their separate ways, and those more mentally pliable show up later to take up roles as deciples and cultists. A Nevervoid Mindwalker's first deciple and cultists arrive within 24 hours of his gaining this ability; likewise, lost deciples and cultists are replaced within 24 hours.
Use the following tables instead of the ones shown for the Leadership feat.
|Has a familiar, special mount, or animal companion||-2|
|Picks a Deciple of a different alignment||-1|
|Caused the death of a Deciple||-2*|
|Killed a Deciple (Reasoned)||+2*|
|Killed a Deciple (Randomly)||-2*|
|Cumulative per Deciple killed||*|
|Leadership Score||Deciple Level||Number of Cultists by Level|
|1 or lower||-||-||-||-||-||-||-|
