These feat descriptions follow the standard format.

Aligned Attack [Psionic]

Your melee or ranged attack overcomes your opponent's alignment-based damage reduction and deals additional damage.

Prerequisite: Base attack bonus +6.

Benefit: When you take this feat, choose either chaos, good, evil or law. (Your choice must match one of your alignment components. Once you've made this alignment choice, it cannot be changed.

To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus. When you make a successful melee or ranged attack, you deal an extra 1d6 points of damage, and your attack is treated as either a good, evil, chaotic, or lawful attack (depending on your original choice) for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.

You must decide whether or not to use this feat prior to making an attack. If your attack misses, you still expend your psionic focus.

Antipsionic Magic [General]

Your spells are more potent when used against psionic characters and creatures.

Prerequisite: Spellcraft 5 ranks.

Benefit: You get a get a +2 bonus on caster level checks made to overcome a psionic creature's power resistance.

This bonus stacks with the bonus conferred by Spell Penetration and Greater Spell Penetration. Moreover, whenever a psionic creature attempts to dispel a spell you cast, it makes its manifester level check against a DC of 13 + its manifester level.

The benefits of this feat apply only to power resistance.

The bonus does not apply to spell resistance. This is an exception to the psionics-magic transparency rule.

Special: You cannot take or use this feat if you have the ability to use powers (if you have a power point reserve or psi-like abilities).

Autonomous [General]

You have a knack for psionic self-sufficiency.

Benefit: You get a +2 bonus on all Autohypnosis checks and Knowledge (psionics) checks.

Body Fuel [Psionic]

You can expand your power point total at the expense of your health.

Benefit: You can recover 2 power points by taking 1 point of ability burn damage to each of your three ability scores: Strength, Dexterity, and Constitution.

You can recover additional power points for a proportional cost to Strength, Dexterity, and Constitution. These recovered points are added to your power point reserve as if you had gained them by resting overnight.

Special: Only living creatures can use this feat. You can take advantage of this feat only while in your own body.

Boost Construct [Psionic]

Your astral constructs have more abilities.

Benefit: When you create an astral construct, you can give it one additional special ability from any menu that the construct currently has an ability from.

Burrowing Power [Metapsionic]

Your powers sometimes bypass barriers.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus. You can attempt to manifest your powers against targets that are sheltered behind a wall or force effect. Your power briefly skips through the Astral Plane to bypass the barrier.

The strength and thickness of the barrier determine your chance of success. To successfully bypass the barrier with your power, you make a Psicraft check against a DC equal to 10 + the hardness of the barrier + 1 per foot of thickness (minimum 1). Assign a hardness of 20 to barriers without a hardness rating, such as force effects (or a wall of ectoplasm). Force walls or walls of ectoplasm are assumed to have less than 1 foot of thickness unless noted otherwise.

If a power requires line of sight (which includes most powers that affect a target or targets instead of an area), you cannot manifest it as a burrowing power unless you can somehow see the target, such as with clairvoyant sense. Using this feat increases the power point cost of the power by 2. The power's total cost cannot exceed your manifester level.

Chain Power [Metapsionic]

You can manifest powers that arc to hit other targets in addition to the primary target.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus. You can chain any power that affects a single target and that deals either acid, cold, electricity, fire, or sonic damage. After the primary target is struck, the power can arc to a number of secondary targets equal to your manifester level (maximum twenty). The secondary arcs each strike one target and deal half as much damage as the primary one did (round down).

Each target gets to make a saving throw, if one is allowed by the power. You choose secondary targets as you like, but they must all be within 30 feet of the primary target, and no target can be struck more than once. You can choose to affect fewer secondary targets than the maximum (to avoid allies in the area, for example).

Using this feat increases the power point cost of the power by 6. The power's total cost cannot exceed your manifester level.

Chaotic Mind [General]

The turbulence of your thoughts prevents others from gaining insight into your actions.

Prerequisite: Chaotic alignment, Cha 15.

Benefit: Creatures and characters who have an insight bonus on their attack rolls, an insight bonus to their Armor Class, or an insight bonus on skill checks or ability checks do not gain those bonuses against you.

The benefit of this feat applies only to insight bonuses gained from psionic powers and psi-like abilities. This is an exception to the psionics-magic transparency rule.

Special: You cannot take or use this feat if you have the ability to use powers (if you have a power point reserve or psi-like abilities).

Cloak Dance [General]

You are skilled at using optical tricks to make yourself seem to be where you are not.

Prerequisites: Hide 10 ranks, Perform (dance) 2 ranks.

Benefit: You can take a move action to obscure your exact position. Until your next turn, you have concealment. Alternatively, you can take a full-round action to entirely obscure your exact position. Until your next action, you have total concealment.

Closed Mind [General]

Your mind is better able to resist psionics than normal.

Benefit: You get a +2 bonus on all saving throws to resist powers.

The benefit of this feat applies only to psionic powers and psi-like abilities. This is an exception to the psionics-magic transparency rule.

Special: You cannot take or use this feat if you have the ability to use powers (if you have a power point reserve or psi-like abilities).

Combat Manifestation [Psionic]

You are adept at manifesting powers in combat.

Benefit: You get a +4 bonus on Concentration checks made to manifest a power or use a psi-like ability while on the defensive or while you are grappling or pinned.

Craft Cognizance Crystal [Item Creation]

You can create psionic cognizance crystals that store power points.

Prerequisite: Manifester level 3rd.

Benefit: You can create a cognizance crystal. Doing so takes one day for each 1,000 gp in its base price. The base price of a cognizance crystal is equal to the highest-level power it could manifest using all its stored power points, squared, multiplied by 1,000 gp. To create a cognizance crystal, you must spend 1/25 of its base price in XP and use up raw materials costing one-half its base price.

Craft Dorje [Item Creation]

You can create slender crystal wands called dorjes than manifest powers when charges are expended.

Prerequisite: Manifester level 5th.

Benefit: You can create a dorje of any psionic power you know (barring exceptions, such as bestow power, as noted in a power's description). Crafting a dorje takes one day for each 1,000 gp in its base price. The base price of a dorje is its manifester level x the power level x 750 gp. To craft a dorje, you must spend 1/25 of this base price in XP and use up raw materials costing one-half of this base price.

A newly created dorje has 50 charges.

Any dorje that stores a power with an XP cost also carries a commensurate cost. In addition to the XP cost derived from the base price, you must pay fifty times the XP cost.

Craft Psicrown [Item Creation]

You can create psicrowns, which have multiple psionic effects.

Prerequisite: Manifester level 12th.

Benefit: You can create any psicrown whose prerequisites you meet. Crafting a psicrown takes one day for each 1,000 gp in its base price. To craft a psicrown, you must spend 1/25 of its base price in XP and use up raw materials costing one-half of its base price. Some psicrowns incur extra costs in XP as noted in their descriptions. These costs are in addition to those derived from the psicrown's base price.

Craft Psionic Arms and Armor [Item Creation]

You can create psionic weapons, armor, and shields.

Prerequisite: Manifester level 5th.

Benefit: You can create any psionic weapon, armor, or shield whose prerequisites you meet. Enhancing a weapon, suit of armor, or shield takes one day for each 1,000 gp in the price of its psionic features. To enhance a weapon, you must spend 1/25 of its features' total price in XP and use up raw materials costing one-half of this total price.

The weapon, armor, or shield to be enhanced must be a masterwork item that you provide. Its cost is not included in the above cost.

You can also mend a broken psionic weapon, suit of armor, or shield if it is one that you could make. Doing so costs half the XP, half the raw materials, and half the time it would take to enhance that item in the first place.

Craft Psionic Construct [Item Creation]

You can create golems and other psionic automatons that obey your orders.

Benefit: You can create any psionic construct whose prerequisites you meet. Creating a construct takes one day for each 1,000 gp in its base price. To create a construct, you must spend 1/25 of the construct's base price in XP and use up raw materials costing one-half of this price. A newly created construct has average hit points for its Hit Dice.

Craft Universal Item [Item Creation]

You can create universal psionic items.

Prerequisite: Manifester level 3rd.

Benefit: You can create any universal psionic item whose prerequisites you meet. Crafting a universal psionic item takes one day for each 1,000 gp in its base price. To craft a universal psionic item, you must spend 1/25 of the item's base price in XP and use up raw materials costing one-half of this price.

You can also mend a broken universal item if it is one that you could make. Doing so costs half the XP, half the raw materials, and half the time it would take to craft that item in the first place.

Some universal items incur extra costs in XP, as noted in their descriptions. These costs are in addition to those derived from the item's base price. You must pay such a cost to create an item or to mend a broken one.

Deadly Precision [General]

You empty your mind of all distracting emotion, becoming an instrument of deadly precision.

Prerequisite: Dex 15, base attack bonus +5.

Benefit: You have deadly accuracy with your sneak attacks. You can reroll any result of 1 on your sneak attack's extra damage dice. You must keep the result of the reroll, even if it is another 1.

Deep Impact [Psionic]

You can strike your foe with a melee weapon as if making a touch attack.

Prerequisite: Str 13, Psionic Weapon, base attack bonus +5.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus. You can resolve your attack with a melee weapon as a touch attack. You must decide whether or not to use this feat prior to making an attack. If your attack misses, you still expend your psionic focus.

Delay Power [Metapsionic]

You can manifest powers that go off up to 5 rounds later.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus. You can manifest a power as a delayed power. A delayed power doesn't activate immediately. When you manifest the power, you choose one of three trigger mechanisms: (1) The power activates when you take a standard action to activate it; (2) It activates when a creature enters the area that the power will affect (only powers that affect areas can use this trigger condition); or (3) It activates on your turn after 5 rounds pass. If you choose one of the first two triggers and the conditions are not met within 5 rounds, the power activates automatically on the fifth round.

Only area and personal powers can be delayed.

Any decisions you would make about the delayed power, including attack rolls, designating targets, or determining or shaping an area, are decided when the power is manifested. Any effects resolved by those affected by the power, including saving throws, are decided when the delay period ends.

A delayed power can be dispelled normally during the delay, and can be detected normally in the area or on the target by the use of powers that can detect psionic effects.

Using this feat increases the power point cost of the power by 2. The power's total cost cannot exceed your manifester level.

Empower Power [Metapsionic]

You can manifest powers to greater effect.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus.

You can empower a power. All variable, numeric effects of an empowered power are increased by one-half. An empowered power deals half again as much damage as normal, cures half again as many hit points, affects half again as many targets, and so forth, as appropriate. Augmented powers can also be empowered (multiply 1-1/2 times the damage total of the augmented power). Saving throws and opposed checks (such as the one you make when you manifest dispel psionics) are not affected, nor are powers without random variables.

Using this feat increases the power point cost of the power by 2. The power's total cost cannot exceed your manifester level.

Enlarge Power [Metapsionic]

You can manifest powers farther than normal.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus. You can alter a power with a range of close, medium, or long to increase its range by 100%. An enlarged power with a range of close has a range of 50 feet + 5 feet per level, a medium-range power has a range of 200 feet + 20 feet per level, and a long-range power has a range of 800 feet + 80 feet per level.

Powers whose ranges are not defined by distance, as well as powers whose ranges are not close, medium, or long, are not affected.

Using this feat does not increase the power point cost of the power.

Expanded Knowledge [Psionic]

You learn another power.

Prerequisites: Manifester level 3rd.

Benefit: Add to your powers known one additional power of any level up to one level lower than the highest-level power you can manifest. You can choose any power, including powers from another discipline's list or even from another class's list.

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

Extend Power [Metapsionic]

You can manifest powers that last longer than normal.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus.

You can manifest an extended power. An extended power lasts twice as long as normal. A power with a duration of concentration, instantaneous, or permanent is not affected by this feat.

Using this feat increases the power point cost of the power by 2. The power's total cost cannot exceed your manifester level.

Fell Shot [Psionic]

You can strike your foe with a ranged weapon as if making a touch attack.

Prerequisite: Dex 13, Point Blank Shot, Psionic Shot, base attack bonus +5.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus. You can resolve your ranged attack as a ranged touch attack.

You must decide whether or not to use this feat prior to making an attack. If your attack misses, you still expend your psionic focus.

Focused Sunder [Psionic]

You can sense the stress points on others' weapons.

Prerequisite: Str 13, Power Attack, Improved Sunder.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus.

When you strike at an opponent's weapon, you ignore half of the weapon's total hardness (round down). Total hardness includes any magical or psionic enhancements possessed by the weapon that increase its hardness.

Special: You can also sense the stress points in any hard construction, such as wooden doors or stone walls, and can ignore half of the object's total hardness (round down) when attacking that object.

Force of Will [General]

You are able to resist psionic attacks with extreme force of will.

Prerequisite: Iron Will.

Benefit: Once per round, when targeted by a psionic effect that allows a Reflex save or a Fortitude save, you can instead make a Will saving throw to avoid the effect.

The benefit of this feat applies only to psionic powers and psi-like abilities. This is an exception to the psionics-magic transparency rule.

Special: You cannot take or use this feat if you have the ability to use powers (if you have a power point reserve or psi-like abilities).

Ghost Attack [Psionic]

Your deadly strikes against incorporeal foes always find their mark.

Prerequisite: Base attack bonus +3.

Benefit: You must be psionically focused to use this feat. When you make a melee attack or a ranged attack against an incorporeal creature, you can make two rolls to check for the miss chance. If either is successful, the attack is treated as if it were made with a ghost touch weapon for the purpose of affecting the creature. Your weapon or natural weapon actually appears to become briefly incorporeal as the attack is made.

Greater Manyshot [General]

You are skilled at firing many arrows at once, even at different opponents.

Prerequisites: Dex 17, Manyshot, Point Blank Shot, Rapid Shot, base attack bonus +6.

Benefit: When you use the Manyshot feat, you can fire each arrow at a different target instead of firing all of them at the same target. You make a separate attack roll for each arrow, regardless of whether you fire them at separate targets or the same target. Your precision-based damage applies to each arrow fired, and, if you score a critical hit with more than one of the arrows, each critical hit deals critical damage.

Special: A fighter may select this feat as one of his fighter bonus feats.

Greater Power Penetration [Psionic]

Your powers are especially potent at breaking through power resistance.

Prerequisite: Power Penetration.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus (see the Concentration skill description). You get a +8 bonus on manifester level checks to overcome a creature's power resistance. This bonus overlaps with the bonus from Power Penetration.

Greater Power Specialization [Psionic]

You deal more damage with your powers.

Prerequisites: Power Specialization, Weapon Focus (ray), manifester level 12th.

Benefit: Your powers that deal damage deal an extra 2 points of damage. This damage stacks with other bonuses on damage rolls to powers, including the one from Power Specialization. The damage bonus applies only if the target or targets are within 30 feet.

Greater Psionic Endowment [Psionic]

You can use meditation to focus your powers.

Prerequisite: Psionic Endowment.

Benefit: When you use the Psionic Endowment feat, you add +2 to the save DC of a power you manifest instead of +1.

Greater Psionic Fist [Psionic]

You can charge your unarmed strike or natural weapon with additional damage potential.

Prerequisite: Str 13, Psionic Fist, base attack bonus +5.

Benefit: When you use the Psionic Fist feat, your unarmed attack or attack with a natural weapon deals an extra 4d6 points of damage instead of an extra 2d6 points.

Greater Psionic Shot [Psionic]

You can charge your ranged attacks with additional damage potential.

Prerequisite: Point Blank Shot, Psionic Shot, base attack bonus +5.

Benefit: When you use the Psionic Shot feat, your ranged attack deals an extra 4d6 points of damage instead of an extra 2d6 points.

Greater Psionic Weapon [Psionic]

You can charge your melee weapon with additional damage potential.

Prerequisite: Str 13, Psionic Weapon, base attack bonus +5.

Benefit: When you use the Psionic Weapon feat, your attack with a melee weapon deals an extra 4d6 points of damage instead of an extra 2d6 points.

Hostile Mind [General]

Your mind recoils violently against those who use psionics against you.

Prerequisite: Cha 15.

Benefit: Whenever you are subject to a power from the telepathy discipline (regardless of whether the power is harmful or beneficial to you), the manifester must make a Will saving throw against a DC of 10 + 1/2 your character level + your Charisma bonus or take 2d6 points of damage.

The benefit of this feat applies only to psionic powers and psi-like abilities. This is an exception to the psionics-magic transparency rule.

Special: You cannot take or use this feat if you have the ability to use powers (if you have a power point reserve or psi-like abilities).

Imprint Stone [Item Creation]

You can create power stones to store psionic powers.

Prerequisite: Manifester level 1st.

Benefit: You can create a power stone of any power that you know. Encoding a power stone takes one day for each 1,000 gp in its base price. The base price of a power stone is the level of the stored power x its manifester level x 25 gp. To imprint a power stone, you must spend 1/25 of this base price in XP and use up raw materials costing one-half of this base price.

Any power stone that stores a power with an XP cost also carries a commensurate cost. In addition to the costs derived from the base price, you must pay the XP when encoding the stone.

Improved Psicrystal [Psionic]

You can upgrade your psicrystal.

Prerequisites: Psicrystal Affinity.

Benefit: You can implant another personality fragment in your psicrystal. You gain the benefits of both psicrystal personalities. Your psicrystal's personality adjusts and becomes a blend between all implanted personality fragments. From now on, when determining the abilities of your psicrystal, treat your manifester level as one higher than your normal manifester level.

Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Each time, you implant a new personality fragment in your psicrystal, from which you derive the noted benefits, and you treat your level as one higher for the purpose of determining your psicrystal's abilities.

Inquisitor [Psionic]

You know when others lie.

Prerequisite: Wis 13.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus.

You gain a +10 bonus on a Sense Motive check to oppose a Bluff check.

You must decide whether or not to use this feat prior to making a Sense Motive check. If your check fails, or if the opponent isn't lying, you still expend your psionic focus.

Maximize Power [Metapsionic]

You can manifest powers to maximum effect.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus.

You can maximize a power. All variable, numeric effects of a power modified by this feat are maximized. A maximized power deals maximum damage, cures the maximum number of hit points, affects the maximum number of targets, and so on, as appropriate. Saving throws and opposed checks are not affected, nor are powers without random variables.

Augmented powers can be maximized; a maximized augmented power deals the maximum damage (or cures the maximum hit points, and so on) of the augmented power.

An empowered and maximized power gains the separate benefits of each feat: the maximum result plus one-half the normally rolled result.

Using this feat increases the power point cost of the power by 4. The power's total cost cannot exceed your manifester level.

Mental Leap [Psionic]

You can make amazing jumps.

Prerequisite: Str 13, Jump 5 ranks.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus. You gain a +10 bonus on a Jump check.

Mental Resistance [General]

Your mind is armored against mental intrusion.

Prerequisite: Base Will save bonus +2.

Benefit: Against psionic attacks that do not employ an energy type to deal damage you gain damage reduction 3/-. In addition, when you are hit with ability damage (but not ability drain or ability burn damage) from a psionic attack, you take 3 points less than you would normally take.

The benefit of this feat applies only to psionic powers and psi-like abilities. This is an exception to the psionics-magic transparency rule.

Special: You cannot take or use this feat if you have the ability to use powers (if you have a power point reserve or psi-like abilities).

Metamorphic Transfer [Psionic]

You can gain a supernatural ability of a metamorphed form.

Prerequisite: Wis 13, manifester level 5th.

Benefit: Each time you change your form, such as through the metamorphosis power, you gain one of the new form's supernatural abilities, if it has any.

No matter how many times you manifest the metamorphosis power on a given day, you can gain only a total of three supernatural ability transfers per day.

You gain only three uses of the metamorphic ability per day, even if the creature into which you metamorph has a higher limit on uses (You are still subject to other restrictions on the use of the ability.) The save DC to resist a supernatural ability gained through Metamorphic Transfer (if it is an attack) is 10 + your Cha modifier + 1/2 your Hit Dice.

Normal: You cannot use the supernatural abilities of creatures whose form you assume.

Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Each time, you can gain one additional supernatural ability.

Mind Over Body [General]

Your ability damage heals more rapidly.

Prerequisite: Con 13.

Benefit: You heal ability damage and ability burn damage more quickly than normal. You heal a number of ability points per day equal to 1 + your Constitution bonus.

Normal: You heal ability damage and ability burn damage at a rate of 1 point per day.

Narrow Mind [Psionic]

Your ability to concentrate is as keen as an arrowhead, allowing you to gain your psionic focus even in the most turbulent situations.

Prerequisite: Wis 13.

Benefit: You gain a +4 bonus on Concentration checks you make to become psionically focused.

Open Minded [General]

You are naturally able to reroute your memory, mind, and skill expertise.

Benefit: You immediately gain an extra 5 skill points. You spend these skill points as normal. If you spend them on a cross-class skills they count as 1/2 ranks. You cannot exceed the normal maximum ranks for your level in any skill.

Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Each time, you immediately gain another 5 skill points.

Opportunity Power [Metapsionic]

You can make power-enhanced attacks of opportunity.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus. When you make an attack of opportunity, you can use any power you know with a range of touch, if you have at least one hand free.

Manifesting this power is an immediate action.

You cannot use this feat with a touch power whose manifesting time is longer than 1 full-round action.

Using this feat increases the power point cost of the power by 6. The power's total cost cannot exceed your manifester level.

Normal: Attacks of opportunity can be made only with melee weapons.

Overchannel [Psionic]

You burn your life force to strengthen your powers.

Benefit: While manifesting a power, you can increase your effective manifester level by one, but in so doing you take 1d8 points of damage. At 8th level, you can choose to increase your effective manifester level by two, but you take 3d8 points of damage. At 15th level, you can increase your effective manifester level by three, but you take 5d8 points of damage.

The effective increase in manifester level increases the number of power points you can expend on a single power manifestation, as well as increasing all manifester level-dependent effects, such as range, duration, and overcoming power resistance.

Normal: Your manifester level is equal to your total levels in classes that manifest powers.

Power Penetration [Psionic]

Your powers are especially potent, breaking through power resistance more readily than normal.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus. You get a +4 bonus on manifester level checks made to overcome a creature's power resistance.

Power Specialization [Psionic]

You deal more damage with your powers.

Prerequisites: Weapon Focus (ray), manifester level 4th.

Benefit: With rays and ranged touch attack powers that deal damage, you deal an extra 2 points of damage. If you expend your psionic focus when you manifest a ray or a ranged touch attack power that deals damage, you add your key ability bonus to the damage (instead of adding 2).

Psicrystal Affinity [Psionic]

You have created a psicrystal.

Prerequisites: Manifester level 1st.

Benefit: This feat allows you to gain a psicrystal.

Psicrystal Containment [Psionic]

Your psicrystal has advanced enough that it can hold a psionic focus that you store within it.

Prerequisites: Psicrystal Affinity, manifester level 3rd.

Benefit: You can spend a full-round action attempting to psionically focus your psicrystal. At any time when you need to expend your psionic focus, you can expend your psicrystal's psionic focus instead, as long as the crystal is within 5 feet of you. Psionically focusing your psicrystal works just like focusing yourself. The psicrystal cannot focus itself-only the owner can spend the time to focus the crystal.

Psionic Affinity [General]

You have a knack for psionic endeavors.

Benefit: You get a +2 bonus on all Psicraft checks and Use Psionic Device checks.

Psionic Body [Psionic]

Your mind reinforces your body.

Benefit: When you take this feat, you gain 2 hit points for each psionic feat you have (including this one). Whenever you take a new psionic feat, you gain 2 more hit points.

Psionic Charge [Psionic]

You can charge in a crooked line.

Prerequisite: Dex 13, Speed of Thought.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus. When you charge, you can make one turn of up to 90 degrees during your movement. All other restrictions on charges still apply; for instance, you cannot pass through a square that blocks or slows movement, or that contains a creature. You must have line of sight to the opponent at the start of your turn.

Psionic Dodge [Psionic]

You are proficient at dodging blows.

Prerequisite: Dex 13, Dodge.

Benefit: You must be psionically focused to use this feat. You receive a +1 dodge bonus to your Armor Class. This bonus stacks with the bonus from the Dodge feat (but only applies on attacks made by the opponent you have designated).

Psionic Endowment [Psionic]

You can endow your manifestations with more concentrated focus.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus. You add 1 to the save DC of a power you manifest.

Psionic Fist [Psionic]

You can charge your unarmed strike or natural weapon with additional damage potential.

Prerequisite: Str 13.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus. Your unarmed strike or attack with a natural weapon deals an extra 2d6 points of damage.

You must decide whether or not to use this feat prior to making an attack. If your attack misses, you still expend your psionic focus.

Psionic Hole [General]

You are anathema to psionic creatures and characters.

Prerequisite: Con 15.

Benefit: When a foe strikes you in melee combat, the foe immediately loses its psionic focus, if any. Also, if you are the target of a power, the manifester of the power must spend an additional number of power points equal to your Wisdom bonus, or the power fails (all the power points spent on the power are still lost). This extra cost does not count toward the maximum power points a manifester can spend on a single power.

Special: You cannot take or use this feat if you have the ability to use powers (if you have a power point reserve or psi-like abilities).

Psionic Meditation [Psionic]

You can focus your mind faster than normal, even under duress.

Prerequisite: Wis 13, Concentration 7 ranks.

Benefit: You can take a move action to become psionically focused.

Normal: A character without this feat must take a full-round action to become psionically focused.

Psionic Shot [Psionic]

You can charge your ranged attacks with additional damage potential.

Prerequisite: Point Blank Shot.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus. Your ranged attack deals +2d6 points of damage. You must decide whether or not to use this feat prior to making an attack. If your attack misses, you still expend your psionic focus.

Psionic Talent [Psionic]

You gain additional power points to supplement those you already had.

Prerequisite: Having a power point reserve.

Benefit: When you take this feat for the first time, you gain 2 power points.

Special: You can take this feat multiple times. Each time you take the feat after the first time, the number of power points you gain increases by 1.

Psionic Weapon [Psionic]

You can charge your melee weapon with additional damage potential.

Prerequisite: Str 13.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus.

Your attack with a melee weapon deals an extra 2d6 points of damage. You must decide whether or not to use this feat prior to making an attack. If your attack misses, you still expend your psionic focus.

Quicken Power [Metapsionic]

You can manifest a power with a moment's thought.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus. You can quicken a power. You can perform another action, even manifest another power, in the same round that you manifest a quickened power. You can manifest only one quickened power per round. A power whose manifesting time is longer than 1 round cannot be quickened.

Using this feat increases the power point cost of the power by 6. The power's total cost cannot exceed your manifester level.

Manifesting a quickened power does not provoke attacks of opportunity.

Rapid Metabolism [General]

Your wounds heal rapidly.

Prerequisite: Con 13.

Benefit: You naturally heal a number of hit points per day equal to the standard healing rate + double your Constitution bonus. You heal even if you do not rest. This healing replaces your normal natural healing. If you are tended successfully by someone with the Heal skill, you instead regain double the normal amount of hit points + double your Constitution bonus.

Reckless Offense [General]

You can shift your focus from defense to offense.

Prerequisite: Base attack bonus +1.

Benefit: When you use the attack action or full attack action in melee, you can take a penalty of -4 to your Armor Class and add a +2 bonus on your melee attack roll. The bonus on attack rolls and penalty to Armor Class last until the beginning of your next turn.

Return Shot [Psionic]

You can return incoming arrows, as well as crossbow bolts, spears, and other projectile or thrown weapons.

Prerequisite: Point Blank Shot, Psionic Shot, Fell Shot, base attack bonus +3.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus and have at least one hand free. Once per round when you would normally be hit by a projectile or a thrown weapon no more than one size category larger than your size, you can deflect the attack so that you take no damage from it. The attack is deflected back at your attacker, using the attack bonus of the original attack on you. You must be aware of the attack and not flat-footed. Attempting to return a shot is a free action.

Special: If you also have the Deflect Arrows feat, the deflected attack is made with the original attack bonus plus your Dexterity bonus.

Scribe Tattoo [Item Creation]

You can create psionic tattoos, which store powers within their designs.

Prerequisite: Manifester level 3rd.

Benefit: You can create a psionic tattoo of any power of 3rd level or lower that you know and that targets one or more creatures. Scribing a psionic tattoo takes one day. When you create a psionic tattoo, you set the manifester level. The manifester level must be sufficient to manifest the power in question and no higher than your own level. The base price of a psionic tattoo is its power level x its manifester level x 50 gp. To scribe a tattoo, you must spend 1/25 of this base price in XP and use up raw materials (special inks, masterwork needles, and so on) costing one-half of this base price.

When you create a psionic tattoo, you make any choices that you would normally make when manifesting the power.

When its wearer physically activates the tattoo, the wearer is the target of the power.

Any psionic tattoo that stores a power with an XP cost also carries a commensurate cost. In addition to the costs derived from the base price, you must pay the XP when creating the tattoo.

Sidestep Charge [General]

You are skilled at dodging past charging opponents and taking advantage when they miss.

Prerequisite: Dex 13, Dodge.

Benefit: You get a +4 dodge bonus to Armor Class against charge attacks. If a charging opponent fails to make a successful attack against you, you gain an immediate attack of opportunity. This feat does not grant you more attacks of opportunity than you are normally allowed in a round. If you are flat-footed or otherwise denied your Dexterity bonus to Armor Class, you do not gain the benefit of this feat.

Speed of Thought [Psionic]

The energy of your mind energizes the alacrity of your body.

Prerequisite: Wis 13.

Benefit: As long as you are psionically focused and not wearing heavy armor, you gain an insight bonus to your speed of 10 feet.

Split Psionic Ray [Metapsionic]

You can affect two targets with a single ray.

Prerequisite: Any other metapsionic feat.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus. You can split psionic rays you manifest. The split ray affects any two targets that are both within the power's range and within 30 feet of each other. If the ray deals damage, each target takes as much damage as a single target would take.

Using this feat increases the power point cost of the power by 2.

Stand Still [General]

You can prevent foes from fleeing or closing.

Prerequisite: Str 13.

Benefit: When a foe's movement out of a square you threaten grants you an attack of opportunity, you can give up that attack and instead attempt to stop your foe in his tracks. Make your attack of opportunity normally. If you hit your foe, he must succeed on a Reflex save against a DC of 10 + your damage roll (the opponent does not actually take damage), or immediately halt as if he had used up his move actions for the round.

Since you use the Stand Still feat in place of your attack of opportunity, you can do so only a number of times per round equal to the number of times per round you could make an attack of opportunity (normally just one).

Normal: Attacks of opportunity cannot halt your foes in their tracks.

Talented [Psionic]

You can overchannel powers with less cost to yourself.

Prerequisite: Overchannel.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus. When manifesting a power of 3rd level or lower, you do not take damage from overchanneling.

Twin Power [Metapsionic]

You can manifest a power simultaneously with another power just like it.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus. You can twin a power. Manifesting a power altered by this feat causes the power to take effect twice on the area or target, as if you were simultaneously manifesting the same power two times on the same location or target. Any variables in the power (such as duration, number of targets, and so on) are the same for both of the resulting powers. The target experiences all the effects of both powers individually and receives a saving throw (if applicable) for each. In some cases, such as a twinned psionic charm, failing both saving throws results in redundant effects (although, in this example, any ally of the target would have to succeed on two dispel attempts to free the target from the charm effect).

Using this feat increases the power point cost of the power by 6. The power's total cost cannot exceed your manifester level.

Unavoidable Strike [Psionic]

You can make an unarmed strike or use a natural weapon against your foe as if delivering a touch attack.

Prerequisite: Str 13, Psionic Fist, base attack bonus +5.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus. You can resolve your unarmed strike or attack with a natural weapon as a touch attack.

You must decide whether or not to use this feat prior to making an attack. If your attack misses, you still expend your psionic focus.

Unconditional Power [Metapsionic]

Disabling conditions do not hold you back.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus. Your mental strength is enough to overcome some otherwise disabling conditions. You can manifest an unconditional power when you are dazed, confused, nauseated, or stunned.

Only personal powers and powers that affect your person can be manifested as unconditional powers.

Using this feat increases the power point cost of the power by 8. The power's total cost cannot exceed your manifester level.

Up the Walls [Psionic]

You can run on walls for brief distances.

Prerequisite: Wis 13.

Benefit: While you are psionically focused, you can take part of one of your move actions to traverse a wall or other relatively smooth vertical surface if you begin and end your move on a horizontal surface. The height you can achieve on the wall is limited only by this movement restriction. If you do not end your move on a horizontal surface, you fall prone, taking falling damage as appropriate for your distance above the ground. Treat the wall as a normal floor for the purpose of measuring your movement. Passing from floor to wall or wall to floor costs no movement; you can change surfaces freely. Opponents on the ground can make attacks of opportunity as you move up the wall.

Special: You can take other move actions in conjunction with moving along a wall. For instance, the Spring Attack feat allows you to make an attack from the wall against a foe standing on the ground who is within the area you threaten; however, if you are somehow prevented from completing your move, you fall. Likewise, you could tumble along the wall to avoid attacks of opportunity.

Widen Power [Metapsionic]

You can increase the area of your powers.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus. You can alter a burst, emanation, line, or spread-shaped power to increase its area. (Powers that do not have an area of one of these four sorts are not affected by this feat.) Any numeric measurements of the power's area increase by 100%.

Using this feat increases the power point cost of the power by 4. The power's total cost cannot exceed your manifester level.

Wild Talent [General]

Your mind wakes to a previously unrealized talent for psionics.

Benefit: Your latent power of psionics flares to life, conferring upon you the designation of a psionic character. As a psionic character, you gain a reserve of 2 power points and can take psionic feats, metapsionic feats, and psionic item creation feats. You do not, however, gain the ability to manifest powers simply by virtue of having this feat.

Wounding Attack [Psionic]

Your vicious attacks wound your foe.

Prerequisite: Base attack bonus +8.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus. You can make an attack with such vicious force that you wound your opponent. A wound deals 1 point of Constitution damage to your foe in addition to the usual damage dealt.

You must decide whether or not to use this feat prior to making an attack. If your attack misses, you still expend your psionic focus.

Lia looks up startled at Poljen." Poljen, we need you with us. We are about to be in a huge battle and are counting on you. Besides, they are invisible. They should be able to find the mask with no problems. You would draw attention to their location since you aren't invisible. With the silence stone I'm confident that they will be fine. Once we attack in force no one is going to be expecting or looking for two invisible thieves."
