I haven't purchased the Technomage book yet, but once I see what a Technomage needs on a character sheet, I'll modify this one I made to fit. Kizarvexis I wouldn't just yet. I was flipping though it hoping that my FLGS was going to give me store credit for the snafu they caused with my checking acc...

Still doesn't change the basic problem. How does an untrained telepath "pass" the p-rating test Quite easily - Just because the feats and abilities kick in at particular levels, doesn't mean your brain can't actually do that kind of thing, on a basic (but not generally useful) level until then, esp...

Goes back to what I said on another post, Surface Scan should be first level and Accidental Scan just an occupational hazard because no matter how much you practice, you just get worse at it. How about a house rule that replaces Accidental Scan I think Barbara's point is being missed...I can write ...

More importantly, Lyta's bloodline had been genetically prepped by the Vorlons for some future purpose. Lyta is not, and never was a "normal" teep; Her send range, especially when it involves communication with Vorlons (and the fact that she may well have played host, before being modified, to a po...

I don't want to come across as uncool but I have to wonder if that PrC was play-tested at all. It doesn't much look like anyone that has actually played a teep has had any input at all. I agree :!: Episode 1 Season 3: Lyta: "Not at first. We help position for 3 days beaming a signal into their terr...

A verbatim conversation from Episode 1 Season 3 shows that it only took about 2 weeks to go through the change process that Lyta went through: 1 month from the time she left minus travel time to Mars minus time to find a Pilot minus travel time from Mars to the Vorlon Empire minus 3 days waiting wit...

Makes sense. I'm inclined to go with the 'Harlequin' model where major NPC's that are pretty much invincible don't get stats (like Kosh). I just watched Episode 1 Season 3 today and did a verbatim transcript of the opening scene: Sheridan: "Ambassador. Last week after you saved my life I didn't rea...

Finally got a chance to look at the PrC. :shock: How do you tell a Vorlon you've changed your mind? On the other thread there was some comments about the stats for Montessa King in the Psi Corps. It was suggested that she didn't have enough abilities for her level. On actually seeing the PrC it is ...

Found it :!: I knew I had seen something somewhere on Telepaths and events. In Psi Corps there is a drug called Mute on page 56. Mute is a weaker version of the Sleeper drugs. " Mute is taken as a precaution before a telepath visits a crowded or emotional situation." This way a teen telepath could a...

There are pros and cons. Pros: 1. Mongoose as a company is very receiptive to requests for new products (in fact they ask for input). 2. The developers almost live on the message forum. 3. The products arrive very close to schedule. 4. Mongoose got more right in their first edition than Wizards did ...

I agree as well since the description for Wisdom follows the characteristics of a Telepath.

Wizards of the Coast also feel that way for some of their other D20 products also use Wisdom for Telepathy.

On a more serious note (couldn't resist), Genetic Engineering is not an overnight process. It is easier with a fetus as every 24 hours the cells duplicate (that is why you see some fetus' in tanks near Lyta in her memory). In an adult, it depends on which part of the body needs modification as to ho...

To make them a Vorlon Servant, they would have to go to the Vorlon home world for at least a month for the Genetic Engineering to take place that is necessary. {Don't have access to the PrC} Is it really necessary to go back to the Vorlon homeworld (why does it never get named?) to create a Vorlon ...
