Next 52: Psionicist

OK, short break from heavy aesthetic slogging. I made a psionicist class for Next 52 Pages and the rules can with little effort be ported to any other system. The spell schools are Enchantment, Divination, Alteration and Destruction (fire, force).

While making it a balanced option I have also tried to preserve the rarity and elitism of the class ("Wow, Skip! You tested psionic!") and the possibility that they open the party up to a whole new kind of attention and danger from big-brained mutations. It's not quite the long-range sensing and communication of the Hiero novels but maybe some more Divination spells in that vein could be added.


  1. I love the 52 pages and I'm looking forward to 52 pages next.

  2. Excellent treatment of psionics!

  3. Isn't an odd number that is 72 or greater any odd number 73 or greater?
    Why get that player who rolled 72 get excited? Just not fair. ;-)

    1. All right, > 72 if you must; it's just a neat nice 12 x 6 and about 1.5 standard deviations above the mean...
