Classless Psionics d20 System

This file spells out the rules for the psionics system in the game my brother is running. This campaign has no spells so the desire is to generate something closer to the baseline d20 psionics rules.

Normally in the classless system allowed psionic powers can be brought in as spells of equivalent level. The base cost of the power follows the normal spell point rules. If a power can be augmented by spending power point it can be augemented in the same way by spending twice as many Spell points.

It is based off the classless system rules the should be right next to this. http://tyrfing.org/rpg/dd/classless.txt

It also assumes that you understand the d20 Psionics rules as expressed here: http://www.d20srd.org/srd/psionic/psionicPowersOverview.htm

All the normal caster feats in the d20 classless are banned in this campaign. The following manifester feats are available instead

Terms & Abbreviations

Character Level - The full level of the character based on experience, level drain, etc.

Power Level (PL) - Similar to Spell Level (SL) for magic. It is expresses the relative strength and difficulty of the power.

Manifester Level (ML) - Similar to Caster Level (CL) for magic. It express the power of the character using psionic abilities. A "full" Psion would have a manifester level equal to their character level.
