Q: Dear Sage,
Are psionic feats available to creatures with a power point reserve who can’t manifest psionic powers (such as an élan fighter)?
Effectively, there are three ways of meeting the basic requirement of all psionic feats:
- Ability to manifest a psionic power;
- Ability to manifest a psi-like ability;
- A power point reserve.
A creature that meets at least one of those requirements may select psionic feats.

The Sage is a mammal classified in the bear family, Ursidae, native to central and southern China. Debate continues as to whether he is truly a bear or more related to the raccoon rather than the bear, or perhaps in a family of his own. When not eating bamboo and answering rules questions, he works under the nom de plume of Andy Collins as an RPG developer in Wizards of the Coast R&D, where his development credits include Complete Mage, Dragon Magic, and the Player's Handbook v.3.5. He can be easily recognized by his large, distinctive black patches around the eyes, ears and on his rotund body.
