Re: Psi Corps feat-Intensive Training Feat?

I'm trying to wrap my mind around this feat. Sure it helps meet the skill pre-reqs but it doesn't help with feat and telepathic ability requirements. As near as I can tell, it only lets you get in one level earlier in to the prestige class. Am I missing something? It is true, your character will st...

Scottmage- Go back to the main book, read the feat Latent Telepath. P-Zero - Can sense when others use telepathic ability on them. May have a mindlink with a close person. May be able to use Communicate. ( and I think Warning. but I haven't got my book here to check.) She is not a P1,2 or 3. She sa...

That should not be able to happen. Except we have seen this happen (a mundane resist Bester) in the series. Said mundane dies under the strain eventually, but it wasn't easy for Bester to get the information he wanted. Oh, and he wasn't a Diplomat but probably a Lurker. The episode to which you are...

The Class calls for high Intelligence and Wisdom. I would expect that in order to be a Diplomat, you would also have to have Iron Will (so that you are not a push over) as a suggested starting Feat. The Resist Scan only adds +2 to the will roll (like Iron Will). Even if the Diplomat did not start ou...

I believe that the answer is very simple. Bester was there when Micheal was broken and reprogrammed, but in my opinion it cannot be said to an absolute certinty that all the telepathic abilities work was done by Bester without any help from any of the hundreds or even thousands of PsiCorp telepaths...

Thanks for the reply Gar. To clarify. You can have several Vaults but they must all be nested. In fact Vaults automatically nest themselves. For example, I create a vault on Monday and on Tuesday have reason to create another. As I am aware of the existence of such things the presence of Mondays ca...

Range on Action Block is Touch (Close for a P12) - it's mentioned by Shannon in the Psi Corps thread down the page. Can I please get some clairification?

Re: Not gripes...just things I noticed

Right. Anything else need clarifying? Well...since you mention it.... On Page 22 you mention a newer version of the P-Level test that requires a Telepath to perform the the test. While I agree that this could work (a lot better than Sense Telepathy) in most cases, how would that have worked for Aly...

Re: Not gripes...just things I noticed

P. 82-84 - I loved this narrative :!: This is how I would envision a lecture from a P12 would be. :D Bester used his Communication 30 times during this lecture. According to the Standard Rules this would have left him exhausted (which I don't believe). The rules for subdual and use of Telepathy mus...

in reguards to the "Weapons". one can play one. just make a high-power Minbari telepath (P9-P12) if you have a good roll on the d4 you could start with a P11-P12, then select the Minbari sub-race known as The Kira Zhe... That doesn't actually make you a "weapon" character though, just a high P rate...

The main point is the role playing. Not how powerful your character is. Your character is not central to shaping the galaxy and history as the main characters are. In the main book Bester is T9/PC6?, by the No Surrender, No Retreat he is T9/PC9? True about the role playing. It is not so much about ...

Ivanova said that she was a P1 or P2. She was able to tell when someone was scanning her and she could sometimes feel others emotions. She was never able to communicate with anyone other than her mother (telepath to telepath) and she never had any incident of Accidently scanning someone else. I thi...

It is the only way to play certain prestige classes, i.e. Commercial Telepath, etc. I doubt that the Psi Corps wants the character running around "adventuring" till they have enough experience to gain that level to have all the prerequisets to be a certain prestige class. That or the GM could just s...

Maybe a mutual appreciation thread should be started....

Why does Psi Corps show as Preorder again?

Does mean that they are no longer shipping?

(edited because my personal problems have no place on these boards) You have the design process backwards.

Connections between two telepaths can go for miles. Similarly, abilities we might assume are telepathy (Delenn's connection with Sheridan, Sheridan's connection with Kosh) can work over distances of light-years. Let's not forget the Centari Imperial Telepaths that can communicate back to Centari Pr...

WOO HOO :!: :!: :!:

Sounds like a must have book...now if my *&%^$ gaming store will order it...I may just buy it directly from Mongoose (so much for supporting my local gaming store, but I don't want to wait 3 or 4 more months to get it).
