Telepathic Shields / Psionic Shields

Postby anari » Fri Sep 23, 2011 3:43 am

Simple question:
On page 153 of the Traveller main book it says "A character with no Psionic Strength points cannot attempt to activate a power."

On page 154 the Shield power says "Shield is automatically in force at all times and requires no Psionic Strength point expenditure to maintain."

Does a character who has used up all their psionic points still get the benefit of a shield ability? Can they keep it up, if they already had it up? Can they put them in place if they didn't?

Thanks,

The catch here is that very little can actually cause a psychic to lose their active Shield power. In essence, the answers to your questions are as such:

1) If a psychic is reduced to 0 strength, Shield remains active and is not lost.

2) If a psychic for some reason takes Shield down while they have 0 strength, they cannot raise it again until they have at least 1 strength point.


Hope this helps!
