Converting 3.x D&D to HERO: psionic classes

Rate this Entry
so here's all of the psionics. I tried my best to emulate the concept of power points and boosting powers. I figure a END reserve would best emulate power points. As for boosting, keeping the powers in a VPP allow for having it as "powerful" as you need to be. Obviously, the less powerful, the less END (power points) to be used.


PSION

Natural Psionics: VPP 8 pt pool (8 active pts) 40 control (1/2 phase to change) (+1/2) (30 active pts) gestures (-1/4) incantations (-1/4) only with cloth armor or less (-1) concentration (1/2 DCV) (-1/4) full phase (-1/2) all spent END comes from END reserve AND normal END (-1/2) cannot be from non-specialty and from psionic handbook (-1/2) real cost: 7 pts TOTAL cost: 15 pts

Power Point Reserve: 56 END reserve with REC 12 (28 active pts) only recovers while sleeping or in meditation [0 DCV and completely oblivious] (-1), recovers at rate of REC/5 minutes (-2) real cost: 5 pts


PSYCHIC WARRIOR

Trained Psionics: multipower 40 pt reserve (40 active pts) gestures (-1/4) incantations (-1/4) only with light armor or less (-1/2) concentration (1/2 DCV) (-1/4) full phase (-1/2) all spent END comes from END reserve AND normal END (-1/2) real cost: 12 pts

Power Point Reserve: 56 END reserve with REC 12 (28 active pts) only recovers while sleeping or in meditation [0 DCV and completely oblivious] (-1), recovers at rate of REC/5 minutes (-2) real cost: 5 pts

SOULKNIFE

Wild Talent: 16 END reserve with REC 3 (8 active pts) only recovers while sleeping or in meditation [0 DCV and completely oblivious] (-1), recovers at rate of REC/5 minutes (-2) real cost: 2 pts

-OR-

Mind blade enhancement: 3x 2-pt CSL (6 pts) only to give +1 OCV, +1 DC (-1/2) real cost: 3 pts.

-OR-

do each EFFECT individually

Speed of thought: +4 m running (4 active pts) not while wearing heavy armor (-1/4) only when psionically focused (-1/4)

PSIONICALLY FOCUSED – will be defined for feats. For feats that “expend it” or are only active while you are focused, consider it a form of non-persistant. So above would turn off if go unconscious until you take a half-phase to activate it.

Bladewind: naked advantage to mindblade; area of effect 4m radius, hole in middle selective (+3/4) (10 active pts) full phase (-1/2) x3 END from wild talent (-1/2) Real cost: 7 pts.

Multiple throw: naked advantage to throw mind blade; Autofire 3 (+1/4) (active cost: 4 pts) x2 END from wild talent (-1/4) real cost: 3 pts.


The wilder was trickier in terms of boosting with power points. I built a second VPP JUST for adding active pts to a power from psionics. I figure this works better than an aid power in terms of versatility.


WILDER

Wild Psionics: multipower 40 pt reserve (40 active pts) gestures (-1/4) incantations (-1/4) only with light armor or less (-1/2) concentration (1/2 DCV) (-1/4) full phase (-1/2) all spent END comes from END reserve AND normal END (-1/2) real cost: 12 pts

ARDENT

psionics and pp reserve as just as before. As for mantles, there are too many to do each one individually, so will define them upon request.

DIVINE MIND

SOOOO.... that's all for psionics and D&D splash books. I could do core classes next, but realized pathfinder has some of their content online. Before I do core classes, I figure, why not cover THOSE classes too. While I have already edited samurai and ninja from the previous posts with regards to pathfinder stuff, next time I will cover Magus, gunslinger, alchemist, cavalier, inquisitor, oracle, summoner, and witch
