Q: Dear Sage
Can an artificer craft psionic items?
The artificer doesn’t gain any of the “psionic” item creation feats as bonus feats, and doesn’t have any ability to emulate the manifester level prerequisites for those feats.
The psionic artificer variant class (Magic of Eberron, p.42) gains psionic item creation feats in place of the normal item creation feats, and can emulate psionic powers rather than spells.
About the Author
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.
