A psionic power is a one-time psionic effect
manifested by a psionic character or creature. Psionic powers require power points
to use, although naturally psionic creatures can manifest their powers a certain number of times per day with no power point cost
Each psionic power is tied to a specific ability, which is the key ability
for that psionic power. A psionic character must have a key ability
score equal to at least 10 + the power's level
to manifest a particular power.
Unlike arcane spellcasters, psionic characters don't have spellbooks and they don't prepare their powers ahead of time. A psionic character's level
limits the number of power points
available for manifesting powers. A psionic character has a set number of powers available that he may manifest at will, provided he has sufficient power points
to pay for the manifestation.
A power manifests when the psionic character pays its power point cost
. The character pays the cost, and the power manifests immediately.
Psionic powers don't require special gestures, words, or materials. They operate as thoughts made manifest. Most powers do have a noticeable display
associated with their use, however.
