Psionics Revision Lv Zero

Revising My Psionics into a booklet soon and it's a slog so I thought Id workshop it out on the Blog level by level. I will be adding more levels and possibly change some details.

So my favoured readers, sing out If you have requests for other stuff as my own gaming needs I'm pretty far ahead of. Do I need separate psionics or Mystic class? Could I roll shamen into this? One other writing job to finish to and hope I can face killing it.

The plan is my Psionics are just another spell list like priest or wizard spells. Many are based on other spell lists. Also as I don't have an illusionist class I'm including some of them. It is in part sf psychic/mentalist/spiritualist/mesmerist based.

I did have all spalls divided into energy, matter, body and perception-based spells but I'm discarding that concept as I've ditched lots on AD&D unearthed arcana type pages of rules to limit what characters can do without much reason. If you need a table of limitations it's probably a messy rule addition. I will develop these as variant pregens I use for new and late players. I will add some other specialists using this list. I have let bards and others use them fine and space elves they work for too. In a more SF game, I might swap some out. I was once interested in a psionics specialist class but probably a sorcerer or bard or elf would do fine mostly. I would probably make like a victorian occultist, possibly shamen, illusionist or mystic pregen builds. I did like the BECMI D&D take on Illusionists in Glantri who are connected to a dream and nightmare worlds.

This is all for my homebrew whee I wonkily changed stat names and stuff. My rulebook is around somewhere to download and gets a few updates a year. Plus my 0 level speels are not the cast as much as you want type. I have a few skills that make cantrips better too.
