Psychic Weapon Examples

To the casual observer, a Psychic appears much as a spellcaster does, invoking powers that seem magical and create effects that sometimes are similar in nature to magic. Here are several weapons that make use of the Psychic's Astral Field and seem similar to magic, but to the Psychic are as mundane as the physical weapons they are created in the image of.

Psychic weapons all resemble a crystalline handle (Astrillium) of different designs. The design of the handle determines the shape of the weapon. When held by a Psychic or a Natural Talent, the crystal focuses a fraction of the wielder's Astral Field into a solid, tangible weapon. Mind Guns (pistols) and Mind Rifles (rifles) form the Astral Field into small bursts, fired by the weapon at the appropriate time. Thought Whips have the same abilities as a normal Whip (notation 7). Damage inflicted is the same as a normal version of the weapon in all cases.

Optionally, the wielder's Charisma (instead of Strength) can be used to determine bonus damage if the Referee deems Charisma to be in line with determining a character's 'force of personality'.
