Special Abilities

Psionic creatures can create psionic effects without having levels in a psionic class (although they can take a psionic class to further enhance their abilities); such creatures have the psionic subtype.

Characters using dorjes, cognizance crystals, and other psionic items can also create psionic effects. In addition to existing spell-like and supernatural abilities, creatures can also have psi-like abilities. (Psionic creatures may also have extraordinary and natural abilities.)

Psi-Like Abilities (Ps): The manifestation of powers by a psionic character is considered a psi-like ability, as is the manifestation of powers by creatures without a psionic class (creatures with the psionic subtype, also simply called psionic creatures). Usually, a psionic creature's psi-like ability works just like the power of that name. A few psi-like abilities are unique; these are explained in the text where they are described.

Psi-like abilities have no verbal, somatic, or material components, nor do they require a focus or have an XP cost (even if the equivalent power has an XP cost). The user activates them mentally. Armor never affects a psi-like ability's use. A psi-like ability has a manifesting time of 1 standard action unless noted otherwise in the ability description. In all other ways, a psi-like ability functions just like a power. However, a psionic creature does not have to pay a psi-like ability's power point cost.

Psi-like abilities are subject to power resistance and to being dispelled by dispel psionics. They do not function in areas where psionics is suppressed or negated.

Supernatural Abilities: Some creatures have psionic abilities that are considered supernatural. Psionic feats are also supernatural abilities. These abilities cannot be disrupted in combat, as powers can be, and do not provoke attacks of opportunity (except as noted in their descriptions). Supernatural abilities are not subject to power resistance and cannot be negated or dispelled; however, they do not function in areas where psionics is suppressed.

After being pulled aside by Velon along with Mari, Perry says, "I'm sorry, Mari. I chose you because I believed in you. Because you're my dear apprentice and, more importantly, someone who I really trust to have my back." He smiles softly and continues, "Still, I should have asked you. But you really were cool as a T-rex you know. You had a blonde stripe down your back."

Once all the looting and whatnot is over, Perry approaches the female gnome alongside Poljen and Velon. He interrupts whatever conversation is taking place and says, "Hey, sorry for the interrupt here, but I think I have an idea. We still have a big army out there to deal with. Poljen, Velon, what do you say we flop Cyanwrath's body down in front of them? I might be able to convince them to surrender or at the very least demoralize the majority of them enough to make them flee. Whadaya think?"
