so you want a mechanically different psionic system? may i suggest that you look at mutants and masterminds by green ronin? it is aimed at the superhero genre, but works in any genre you care to apply it to. inclusive in the rules for powers is the "player gets to describe it" rule, combined with some advice to the dm on how to adjudicate that. which means that you can make anything "psionic" with a description. =D _________________ does the walker choose the path, or does the path choose the walker?<div>http://www.penandpapergames.com?referrerid=1336</div><div>http://www.kadokado.com?ref=nijineko<div /></div>

...The best I've seen (and unfortunately I've lost track of my copy) was a homebrewed d20 system that based the powers on feats (accessing the different types of psionics and such) and skills (effecting how powerful you were in each type of psionics and how much control you had. It was a bit cumbersome to work with but had the virtue of not being overpowered or just magic by another name.
Where it was a skill and feat system it also allowed non-psions to learn some basic psionics, although at cross/class skill point costs.
That sounds very much like the Psychic class from Green Ronin. If you like that system, check it out. _________________ Greyhawk is dead; long live Greyahwk! It is not heresy; I will not recant!

Green Ronin made a decent attempt at psionics what I always called them psychics. No psps instead the psychic strains himself hit points and could pass out by using his powers too often yes there are psychic skills and it lends alot from second edition psionics handbook. I use this for my GH game and allow saving throws based on the 3.5 edition rules. Some tweeking and it works out fine.
