Added some wiki articles to expand on existing concepts. Tulpas Psionic Curses and Boons Flux Constructs Added a new section to the psion app template for the appearance of the psion's flux. This is purely aesthetic and exists just to make you think about it, since how your flux looks is an important aspect of their characterization. Apps made before this change don't need to be updated unless you want to. Added a bunch of new common abilities. If you want your psion to have one of these or learn them in the future, please contact your graders. Some abilities like Tulpa Creation or Minor Creation are very easy to pick up if your psion has an aptitude that is or close to those ability's subjects. Neuroinvasion Flux Intent Projection - The psion subconsciously exerts their feelings or intent to those in physical contact with their flux. Passively, this is a more subtle effect than emotion mirroring, and can be best described as an 'aura' that can cause subtle feelings such as warmness, discomfort, anxiety, or even feel the psion's subconscious motives or murderous intent. This ability becomes significantly stronger if the psion is actively generating flux, and is passively blocked or dampened by another psion's flux. Flux can be fully directed at a person to intensify the feeling like an emotional 'attack'. Headspace - The psion can create and maintain a vivid mental environment through imaginative neuroinvasive enhancement of ordinary visualization techniques. This space can look like anything they want and can even store specific memories or mental notes, and can be inhabited by any tulpas or alternate personalities the psion has. The psion can 'space out' while awake to enter this mental space, and can visit the mental space in their dreams. A psion's headspace can provide a potential avenue for new abilities. A headspace could potentially be developed from trauma or from a desire to escape from reality. Psychocomputation - The psion has developed a fair number of very basic tulpa subroutines that serve to facilitate mental math, allowing the psion to 'calculate' potentially large and complex mathematical functions with ease. Perceptive Hallucination - The psion causes those susceptible to neuroinvasion that perceive them to perceive false sensory information about the psion, such as having their face blotted out, looking different, or other sensory hallucinations like the psion sounding or smelling different than they actually do. This ability cannot be used to mimic another character, and the hallucination does not hold up to touch. Weaker versions of this ability only work in passing, the illusion breaking down when the psion gets someone's attention, but stronger versions can work even to close inspection. Tulpa Creation - Basic neuroinvasion technique. The psion can create a tulpa, an independent mental being. Clairsentience Metacognition (memory) - The psion can learn more about their own minds than they would know on a normal basis, allowing them to easily recall memories to a photographic extent. They can memorize long strings of numbers or other sequences with ease, and can fairly easily recall facts they learn about a topic. Metacognition (substances) - The psion is aware of the effects and presence of mind-affecting substances on their brain such as neurotoxins or drugs. ESP Flux Scanning - The psion can detect a property of an object that is inside of their flux. A beginner psion's flux can expand to a sphere of up to 15 feet, though this can expand with practice, as with the number of properties that can be detected. Blocked by solid walls. The list of properties you can choose from is the following: Mass Density Velocity and acceleration Shape and volume Temperature Texture Metamanipulation Sonokinesis - The psion can create vibrations in the air to create sounds within a certain range. This can be used to achieve certain effects such as making their voice boom loudly, make a sound appear within a certain spot in range, or replicating sounds. Metacreation Flux Forcefield - The psion hardens their flux and turns it into a material similar to a forcefield that shrouds their body. The forcefield can either dampen kinetic or energy damage at first, and uses substantial amounts of flux to do so. Grader specifies what kind of armor it is equivalent to, and how many instances of damage it can take before the psion is completely drained of flux; metacreators will be best at it, with the average for a metacreator being equivalent to medium armor (either kinetic or energy resistant) for up to eight instances of damage before the psion runs out of flux. Photogenesis - The psion can metacreate photons from flux to perform various harmless effects such as creating harmless lasers, bright lights, or make parts of themselves or objects glow. Psychic Holograms - An advanced application of photon creation in which a psion suspends metacreated photons from their flux in a 3D lattice to create holograms using only their flux and imagination, allowing them to create certain visual effects. Flux Drawing - Use your flux to make marks or draw messages. Unless flux is given qualities to make it visible, messages are only visible with cuilsight. Lasts longer the more flux is put into it, from hours to weeks. Minor Creation - Basic metacreation technique. The psion can metacreate faux matter replicas of a mundane object (like a cup). The result depends on the psion’s own subconscious definition and perceptions of what the object is, with visualization training possible to hone down their idea of the object to make it more accurate. With training, more mundane objects can be created. Objects with moving parts are harder to make, and objects might not necessarily resemble their real counterparts on the inside (for example, a flashlight would still emit light, but wouldn’t have any electronic components or batteries inside of it). See faux matter lore for more information.
