Expanding Your Mind
Four New Psionic Feats
By Mark A. Jindra

This month in "Expanding Your Mind" we have four new feats. The first one, which is called Chain Link, allows you to apply the Upgrade Power feat to all power chains in your primary discipline. The second, which is known as Empower Construction, helps make your astral constructs even more powerful. The third and fourth feats, Master Discipline and Trade-Off, allow you to gain additional powers or trade out newly gained powers for lesser ones.

Chain Link [Psionic]

You can upgrade all recognized power chains in your primary discipline.

Prerequisite: Manifester level 3rd+.

Benefit: All power chains in your primary discipline have the Upgrade Power feat. Whenever you learn a power from your primary discipline, you can "forget" a power from any of the chains in that discipline.

Empower Construction [Psionic]

You can manifest astral constructs with additional special abilities.

Prerequisite:Augment Construction

Benefit: Astral constructs you create with the astral construct powers gain one additional special ability. The ability must be from a menu that the construct can legally choose from. This ability cannot be traded in for choices from lesser menus, as is normally the case.

Master Discipline [Psionic]

You can learn one additional power from your primary discipline.

Prerequisite:Extra Power, Manifester level 3rd+.

Benefit: You learn one additional power at any level up to the highest-level power you can manifest. For example, a 12th-level psion character can learn a new power from 0 level to 6th level.

Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Each time you gain the feat, you learn a new power at any level up to the highest-level power you can manifest.

Trade-Off [Psionic]

You can trade in powers from your primary discipline for additional powers.

Prerequisite: Manifester level 3rd+.

Benefit: When you gain a power from your primary discipline, you can trade it in for up to three powers of a lower level. New powers must be from your primary discipline. The total levels of the powers you choose cannot exceed the level of the power you traded in. Any 0-level powers count as 1st level for purposes of this feat. For example, at 18th-level a psion could trade in the 9th-level power he or she receives from his or her primary discipline for a 5th-level power, a 3rd-level power and a 1st-level power.
