Increasing the PSI stat

Postby MonkeyX » Tue Jan 21, 2020 11:49 am

Have there been any rules about increasing the PSI stat? The companion doesn’t list PSI in the trai g rules there and the Psion LBB only seems to include rules for leading and increasing skills.

MGT1 Psionics gives you a couple different options.

Normally, you roll it 2D6 like any other stat.
However, one important consideration not really mentioned in the main books, but discussed quite a bit in Psionics is: How common is psionics? strictly reading the main books, you get the impression that EVERYONE has Psi. In the Psionics book, there is discussion of how common you can make PSI ability within your setting.

LOTS of Psionic careers there too.

If you are really interested in adding PSI to your game, I strongly recommend the Psionics book. You may not want to all all of it, but it is a great toolbox.

I have the Psion LBB and it gives a few more ideas on powers and skills. I was wondering about a character that is already psionic increasing their stat?

Via the Personal Development table on the Psion career.

Other than that, they would increase the PSI stat the same way they increase any stat in play - very difficulty.
