Class Features[edit]

All of the following are class features of the Psionic Psuperhero.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Psionic Psuperheroes are proficient with simple weapons and light armor.

Power Points/Hour: A Psionic Psuperhero’s ability to manifest powers is limited by the power points he has available. His base hourly allotment of power points is given on Table: Psionic Psuperhero. In addition, he receives bonus power points per hour if his favored ability score is high (see Table: Ability Modifiers and Bonus Power Points). His race may also provide bonus power points per day, as may certain feats and items. The power points per hour granted by this class and a high ability score only apply to his Psionic Psuperhero power.

Powers Known: The Psionic Psuperhero learns one Psionic Psuperhero Power at first level, which has a save DC equal to 10 + its level + his favored ability modifier. If he somehow learns other powers, his power points granted by this class cannot be spent to manifest it.

Favored Ability Score: At level 1, the Psionic Psuperhero chooses an ability score. This may affect his Base Attack Bonus, saving throws, and skills, and determines his bonus power points and save DC.
