Dark Psion P.C.C.
The Dark Psion has found power contained in the negative emotions and harnesses the black power from
within. Note: while this character is bad tempered and great to use as a villain type, it is possible to be on the path to redemption. Principled alignments are banned and Scrupulous will feel badly about their 'dark side'.

4. I.S.P.: Starts with 4D4x5 +M.E. and gains 2D4+1 per level. Saves as a Minor Psychic at 14+.
5. Special Powers:
l Raw Emotion: The character focuses himself on hate, contempt and lust. These forces can be used to
override fear as well as psychic tampering. If the character ever falls sway to a 'weaker' emotion
involuntarily, he may resave at +2 but doing so causes him to fall into the dark side.
l Giving in to the Dark Side: When a Dark Psion gives in to the darkness, their eyes change to an
unnatural color and their voice takes on an unpleasant timbre. During this time their M.A. if half and
Sensitive and Healer powers cost double to invoke and they are at +8 to save vs. psionics in all forms.
This lasts 1 hour per level before quitting, at which time they become vulnerable and human again.
The Dark Psion may be snapped out of this early, but not by psionic means and afterwards must
spend an hour to recover.
l Power of Fury: The character has a 65% chance of going berserk when things go against them. If
they do go berserk, they gain an additional attack, +2 strike and damage, +10 S.D.C. but is -2 to all
defensive moves. Roll after any serious taunt, or failing a skill roll by more than 15% or at the
beginning of any combat round (but not the first unless taunted)
l Side Effects: because the character has no calm mind, their ability to meditate is off. Every hour of
meditation requires that the character roll 1D20 under their M.E. score. If successful, they recover
I.S.P. as usual, if not, they recover as if they were resting. In addition, all powers cost 20% more
I.S.P. to invoke. (Except Physical and Super-psionic when giving in to the dark side). What's worse,
one of the character's super-psionic powers is only available when they give in to fury/darkness.
