Psionics in the Sixth Era

In the sixth era, magic has not only regain its stability, but has also become empowered. New energies long dormant have awakened within the runic elements, blessing their users with greater magical power. This is true for all magics, including Psionics.

Psionics has always been a magic of space and illusion, with its magical power balanced between the opposing energies of the super nova and the black hole. In the sixth era, a third power has awakened, the power of the shadow. This awakens within the psionics mage the abilities to deal with the mind, space, and the void.

Below you will find a complete progression tree showing the spells of old with the spells new to this era. Only the spells new to the sixth era will be found here however, for the rest you need to look at the Psionics page.

The third round swallows the target whole which kills the target. Two, each round the target receives 10d10 magic damage. The target can only be saved by a spell that dispels magic, by escaping the shadow with a Speed Check with a 10 point penalty that increases by 10 each round, or by killing the caster. 60 SA;
