Another supplement for B&T - Psionics of Lore

Psionics are often an iffy subject in D&D. Some love them, some tolerate them and others hate them with a passion. Dark Sun is built entirely around psionics, and 4e has now made psionics as core of a system as magic.

So for B&T, I have decided to do the next thing and create a psionic supplement for the game, tentatively known as Psionics of Lore.

What's so great about this? The Expanded Psionics Handbooks for 3.5 falls under the SRD. That means, legally, I can take mechanics straight from 3.5 without risking legal backlash.

For sure, Psionics of Lore will contain the Psion, Psychic Warrior and Wilder classes. John State, creator of B&T, has already made an excellent Soulknife, and I'm trying to see if I can throw that in there. I've added some things to a few classes to make them more interesting, such as a trance ability for the Psychic Warrior. I will also most likely include some psionic items, such as psionic tattoos, and some enemies as well.

Now, I do run across a dilema I hope some of you can weigh in on

The list of psionic powers is huge, with about 300 in total. These are 300 "spells" that are not in the B&T core book, except for a few like Ego Whip and Mind Thrust.

I have managed to put together a smaller list composed of about 95% B&T spells, but I don't know if that would really kind of sacrifice the flavor of psionics. I could convert the SRD powers, it would just take a longer time. What do you think would be a better solution?

Either way, I hope for this supplement to be released soon, probably before Races of Lore. Stay tuned!

Coming soon - Races of Lore!

Do you like Blood and Treasure? Did you like my previous supplement for it, Heroes of Lore? Then you should be excited for Races of Lore!

Races of Lore is my newest supplement for Blood and Treasure. In it, I detail 14 new 20-level races to include in your B&T, or other retro-clone, games! Some are adaptations of old favorites, and some are brand new!

Discover the regal grimness of the ancient Gaunts! See the animalistic focus of the Ferals! Witness the unbridled strength of the Durga!

I am also considering adding how to make the other monster races presented in B&T go up to level 20, but that's up in the air.

All coming very soon! Stay tuned!
