Mind over Matter: Book 1 Scion and SoulKnife, is a supplement specifically for
Dreamscarred Press’s “ Psionics Unleashed”. Both books are compatible with Pathfinder. The PDF sells for around $5 and is 20 pages, 4 being non content.
This pdf is stocked full of some really great ideas and includes a lot of crunch for the Psion and Soulknife.
First thing I noticed was that instead of Prestige Class they used the term
“Archetype” and instead of gaining individual hit dice, base attack bonuses etc like Prestige Classes, they just gain abilities at certain levels. I do own the Psionics Unleashed and the core Pathfinder books and have never ran across the term. Which leads me to other question like “if you take a Archetype do you just add on the ability at the right level?” The pdf gives no explanation, assuming you know about it already. So unless I’m forgetting something..
Beyond that though the ideas are really great. Introduced here, for the Psion are the archetypes of Locus (being able to be in more than one place at a time) and Mindreaver(able to hide in the Psyches of the victim)
For the Soulknife we get a somewhat forgettable “Attenuator” a sort of monk like guy and the Magpie, a thief-like character,that can steal things right out of the hands of people including weapons. In my opinion this archetype is somewhat over powering not so much on it’s own, but when combine with everything else. Even the gaining and losing of a skill relfects this when you gain slight of hand and lose swim.
The pdf also have a few new feats and even two new afflictions, Delirium and Psychalgia. All very good.
The pdf has a Mythic Class the Medium. Playing this one requires that you have another pdf called “Mythic Adventures”. Making the total books you need to use this pdf to at least three ( A core rules book, Psionics Unleashed and Mythic Adventures).
So overall my thoughts. For the price you get a lot of really great ideas with sound mechanics. Needing at least three other books to use it all not so good. And again, unless I’m forgetting the concepts of Archetypes from another book, there needs to be more explanation on what they are.
