Mystic Traits

Consumptive Power

  • When activating a psionic discipline, you can pay its psi point cost with your hit points, instead of using any psi points. Your current hit points and hit point maximum are both reduced by the number of hit points you spend. This reduction can’t be lessened in any way, and the reduction to your hit point maximum lasts until you finish a long rest. Once you use this feature, you can’t use it again until you finish a long rest.

Immortal Durability

  • Your hit point maximum increases by 1 per mystic level.
  • While you aren’t wearing armor or wielding a shield, your base AC equals 10 + your Dexterity modifier + your Constitution modifier.

Mystical Recovery

  • Immediately after you spend psi points on a psionic discipline, you can take a bonus action to regain hit points equal to the number of psi points you spent.

Psionic Mastery

  • As an action, you gain a pool of special psi points that you can spend only on disciplines that require an action or a bonus action to use. You can use all the points on one discipline, or you can spread them across multiple disciplines. You can’t also spend your normal psi points on these disciplines; you can spend only the special points gained from this feature. When you finish a long rest, you lose any special points that you haven’t spent. If more than one of the disciplines you activate with these points require concentration, you can concentrate on all of them. Activating one of them ends any effect you were already concentrating on, and if you begin concentrating on an effect that doesn’t use these special points, the disciplines that you’re concentrating on end.

Psionic Resilience

  • At the start of each of your turns, you gain temporary hit points equal to your Intelligence modifier if you have at least 1 hit point.

Potent Psionics

  • Once on each of your turns when you hit a creature with a weapon, you can deal an extra 1d8 psychic damage to that target. When you reach 14th level, this extra damage increases to 2d8.

Psychic Focus

  • As a bonus action, you can choose one of your psionic disciplines and gain its psychic focus benefit. The benefit lasts until you are incapacitated or until you use another bonus action to choose a different focus benefit. You can have only one psychic focus benefit at a time, and using the psychic focus of one discipline doesn’t limit your ability to use other disciplines.

Strength of Mind

  • You can trade your proficiency in Wisdom saving throws for another ability whenever you finish a short or long rest. This change lasts until you finish your next short or long rest.

Surge of Health

  • As a reaction when you take damage, you can halve that damage against you. Your psychic focus immediately ends if it’s active, and you can’t use it until you finish a short or long rest. You can’t use this feature if you can’t use your psychic focus.

Telepathy

  • You can telepathically speak to any creature you can see within 120 feet of you. You don’t need to share a language, but the creature must be able to understand at least one language or be telepathic itself.

Psionic Talents

Energy Beam

  • As an action, you target one creature you can see within 90 feet of you. The target must succeed on a Dexterity saving throw or take 3d8 acid, cold, fire, lightning, or thunder damage (your choice). The talent’s damage increases by 1d8 when you reach 17th level (4d8).

Mind Thrust

  • As an action, you target one creature you can see within 120 feet of you. The target must succeed on an Intelligence saving throw or take 3d10 psychic damage. The talent’s damage increases by 1d10 when you reach 17th level (4d10).

Mystic Hand

  • You can use your action to manipulate or move one object within 30 feet of you. The object can’t weigh more than 10 pounds, and you can’t affect an object being worn or carried by another creature. If the object is loose, you can move it up to 30 feet in any direction.

The grappled target can escape by succeeding on a Strength (Athletics) or Dexterity (Acrobatics) check contested by your psionic ability plus your proficiency bonus. When a target attempts to escape in this way, you can spend psi points to boost your check, abiding by your psi limit. You gain a +1 bonus per psi point spent. While a target is grappled in this manner, you create one of the following effects as an action:
    • Crush (1–7 psi): The target takes 1d6 bludgeoning damage per psi point spent.

It can’t be larger than 20 feet on a side, and its maximum weight depends on the psi points spent on this ability, as shown below. As an action, you move the object up to 60 feet, and you must keep the object within sight during this movement. If the object ends this movement in the air, it falls.

The benefit lasts for 1 hour, no concentration required.
  • Find Creature (2 psi; conc, 1 hr): You cast your mind about for information about a specific creature. If you concentrate for this option’s full duration, you then gain a general understanding of the creature’s current location. You learn the region, city, town, village, or district where it is, pinpointing an area between 1 and 3 miles on a side (DM’s choice). If the creature is on another plane of existence, you instead learn which plane.

As an action, you can move the sensor up to 30 feet in any direction. There is no limit to how far away from you the eye can move, but it can’t enter another plane of existence. A solid barrier blocks the eye’s movement, but the eye can pass through an opening as small as 1 inch in diameter.

  • Danger Sense (5 psi; conc., 8 hr.): As an action, you create a psychic model of reality in your mind and set it to show you a few seconds into the future.
