Class: Esper (alpha version)

Nothing in BEMCI has had me howling in frustration quite so much as my attempts to work up some rules for a psionic class. Admittedly I have a certain set of goals I've been trying to reach ...

- limited number of psionic abilities
- abilities usable pretty much at will
- "power points" and the like to be avoided if at all possible

... and they likely aren't helping me at all.

Despite all that, after knocking my head against the proverbial wall I've put together a draft of an idea for a Red Box esper class. I haven't been able to test it yet, let alone eyeball it and see how horribly it breaks; but this or something like it with minor tweaking is what I'm aiming for.

I'm posting the alpha up, if only to try and convince myself it's "finished" and to leave it alone for a bit before I go silly in the head. And who knows, someone just might find it useful --

I think you just gave me the seed for my hierodule class. :D

To activate a talent, must make a roll on a d20 and score the average or higher of the esper's Wisdom and Charisma.

Emphasis mine of course. Is that right, or should it be "average or lower"?

*facepalms* "Lower". That's a glorious typo; serves me right for typing this up when I got home from work ...

A new copy of the file is uploaded now with the correction --!
