My understanding is that you do this This represents your fine control of your ability. The good part of all this is that there are rules for fine-tuning psionic abilities.

The bad part is that it is a bit more complicated, and you really need to have Psionic Powers as this lists the psionnics skills, techniques, etc. To avoid this, I imagine that one could simply design different powers that do not use skills.

It looks like the default for the main powers chi, psionic, super, ets. But little-known variant powers might not need them. For example, there is no reason why a world could not have Mind powers along with Psionic powers. Mind powers can be disrupted with countermeasures, etc.

This means one can only rely on the pisonics power of the mind IQ, Will, etc. One can use a Talent to improve the overall control, but without skills, there is no fine-tweaking of the psionids, no techniques, etc. Or, use “Wild” advantages, which do not have power modifiers, etc. However, a wild advantage will have no talents, no skills, no special techniques, etc. It operates “as is” from the Basic Set. This would be the case with creatures who have innate abilities like dragons.


Anyway, that’s my take on it. I hope this helps. I don’t have much to add, the explanations given above have been excellent. If you haven’t read that gugps, that could be the reason for your confusion. A few abilities don’t use skills, but lsionics are abilities that are totally passive where there is no fine control.

For example, hyperspectral vision does not have a skill because you just turn it on and you can see in an extended spectrum. Seeing is not a skill. I’m sure it’s all there, but it’s just not clicking for some reason. Perhaps I’m too entrenched in the power controlled by skill paradigm of 3rd Edition.

I saw a special on british sniper training Those guys could spot ridiculous things under insane circumstances.

It was the trained ability to see things other people would not notice. And I can see a need for a skill level for hyperspectral vision Originally Posted gurpx kdtipa. That would just be a perception check. You could concievably apply a negative modifier to perception for different types of vision based psoonics how recently a character aquired it, how often they use it, and things like that, I suppose. There are a number of ways to approach psionics in 4e, depending on which books you’ve acquired.

If all you have is the Basic Setthen psionic abilities are just the advantages as written up in psinics Advantages chapter, with a power modifier added that reflects psi’s drawbacks Using Psi Abilitiesp. B92 — no rolls required. For abilities which do require a roll such as Mind Control or Warpyou can also buy a power talent which adds to such rolls. This is just an introductory way to use psionics, suitable for folks who just have the basic set or just want something very simple to use.

GURPS Powers introduces many new concepts — including the Requires Attribute Roll limitation which can be added to a trait for example, thus requiring a roll to use telekinesis, which otherwise doesn’t need itand the mechanic of exchanging a skill roll for an attribute roll Skills For Everyonep.

GURPS Psionic Powers demonstrates one way to use this toolkit by psionivs a worked example of psionic powers that reflects the author’s favorite aspects of 3e psionics.
