Psionics and Sorcery Mentalist Spell List 2

For the record the RQ shaman is the best version ever - i played many shaman for years and kept up with supposed more powerful types fine. Summoning controlling spirits helped you gain power points which gave you more spells and enchanting power. Not really translatable to dnd as was. Id toyed with shaman or psion but making this spell list finalized it. If you have a shaman they may meet minor local spirits most beings never see. A golin shaman might make a deal and got an allied spirit to help or alert them. A wandering shaman can be in peril, at home he knows the local spirits and has relations with them.

Spell components for mentalist spells
Mentalists use some kind of material focus which is not consumed like a priests holy symbol. Shaman use talismans as material components, usually trinkets made with beads, animal parts. They are easily replaceable on a days nature ramble in familiar territory.  Psionicists use crystals and jewels instead with a value of 1gp 1st, 2gp 2nd, 4gp 3rd, 16gp 4th, 60gp 5th, 360gp 6th, 3600gp 7th. Any type of mentalist may use tattoos or body paint or even symbolic clothing as a foci components.

Mentalist spells are as visible as others. Mentalist spells are visible to any aware being with a mind of some kind. A true automaton may not perceive them. Often involve neon beams, rays and auric emanations.

Often accompanied by verbal components including poetry, boasts, shouts, growls, naming the style, recount the ancestors, stating what you are doing loudly or some such gimmick.

Gesture usually is common including frowns, mimicking animals, martial arts katas, or something dramatic.

That's why these NWP are available:

Abjure Material component

Abjure Gestural component
Abjure Visual component

Shaman are the traditional healers, prophets and dealers with spirits for tribal cultures. Shamans can be any age and one may be a hunter til 50 before the shamans call. Many shaman apprentices have suffered some illness, loss or harm of some kind which alters their world view and opens their mind. A shaman teacher tests the apprentice and exposes them to the spirit world. They act as teachers, healers and diviners. Some prefer abilities of a physical nature or even call on abilities to control the physical world and elements. Shaman learn spells by deciding what powers they require then enter a trance to capture and ready spirits to be called when needed. Shaman keep tribe and sacred land safe. They deal with everyday spirits beneath the notice of others. They deal with the ancestral roots of things and study the lineage of all back to the dawn time. Shaman do everything by rote learning, memorisation and personal teaching. Shaman are common among humanoids who prefer demons, bad spirits and spectacular displays of Matter manipulation. Civilized mentalists have alternate theories as to how shamen magic works, often being dismissive of shamen as crazy charletans.
