    This fills a hole that was missing in the OSRIC book. Fantastic job! Well done!

    Designed to be a new psionics system for OSRIC this book introduces the Mentalist class. Powers are divided out among disciplines going to 7th level. Powers are treated mostly like spells, but that works well for adding into OSRIC. Also some psionic monsters are detailed including my favorite (and worth the price of the book) the Doppleganger as a proper psionic monster. 22 pages including cover and OGL. Very nicely done.

    Overall, I think it is a good product. The Mentalist is an easy-to-use psionicist class that looks more like a magic-users (but with its own flavor) than any of the complicated psionic systems that were created for AD&D 1e and 2e back in the days. It looks more like a 3e psion, but simpler and thus easier to use. Myself, I would be willing to play a Mentalist in a OSRIC (AD&D 1e) game, which says a lot about it. I really think this class is a great addition to OSRIC, maybe even greater than OSRIC Unearthed (also by Vigilance) as far as the willingness to play one of its class is considered.

    On the bad side (so it only gets 4 stars rather than 5), I think that the graphic layout could have been better, at least it should have been identical to that of OSRIC Unearthed for those who want to print and bind together. (It would even greater if all those products had the exact same format and graphic layout as the OSRIC core rulebook, but anyway.) Also, some of the psychic powers seemed of little interest for a Mentalist player (especially those who transfer the mentalist's own hit points, or help him in melee combat, since the class is the same as a magic-user when it comes to combat). I have seen a typo about calling a power a spell somewhere.

    I was disappointed with this product. It says that it has gone back to 1ed psionics and taken a new path; however, I found that path similar to 2ed Psionics. I didn't feel there was enough variance to warrant buying the product. What I was after was a simplier psionic combat system. There is no psionic combat system in this product. There are some ideas for adventures and a new setting, but is brief. If you were to use the setting ideas you would still need to do a lot of work to fill out the setting. Good: It was well laid out and there are some different psionic powers. Some psionic powers have different levels of power. Bad: In my PERSONAL opinion, I thought there was nothing overly original.
