The Seer Psionic Class for D&D Up On Kickstarter

Mind powers, Swede. Mind powers.

As Ministry told us, a mind is a terrible thing to taste, but we're taking a big ol' bite out of it with The Seer, a new psionic class for 5th Edition that's up on Kickstarter now. This new class is much more than simply "I cast all the same spells a regular caster does, but I do it by thinking hard about it," and looks to make the character class much more unique in its execution.

From the campaign:

So what is the Seer? It's actually a class I wrote for a distant but upcoming RPG called Lords of Brackas. I went through the domains spells and other forms of magic would control, then determined what domains psionics would control. Turns out while that Venn Diagram overlaps a bit in 5e, they still retain a distinct flavor, far more so than you'll find coming out of official content for quite some time, I'd wager. So, psions attack a person's subconscious, as opposed to displacing their personality (as charm person and suggestion do). Instead of merely altering someone's perception of events around them, psionics will grant you time-altering effects (nothing to break the action economy, don't worry GMs). Instead of conjuring matter and energy, and only be able to do so in limited, spelled out ways, psionics can manipulate what matter and energy they have on hand, and exercise very fine control over their form and effects.

Let's get psionics going for 5E.

The campaign's up and over its funding goal (being fair, they weren't asking for a lot) with 8 days left to go.
