View Full Version : GURPS Psionics

Wondering what you guys think:

Do you like the third edition rules for Psionics better, or fourth edition rules?

My main argument for either is that fourth edition is less of a point-sink, while 3rd edition represents it more accurately.

What's your opinion?

I liked 3rd edition's approach, although I'm not sure accurate is the right word to describe a fictional thing like psionics. The 4th edition just treats psionics like any other advantage or power, so it's more flexible and balanced, but has a little less flavor built in to the system.

If you like the 3rd rules, Psionic Powers (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-0132) more or less recreates the 'power levels and skills' paradigm from 3rd, for 4th edition.

I like 4th edition better. You can customize the powers better and things feel more balanced to me.
