ICONS Template: Psychic

SYSTEM: ICONS

This one turned out to be very bare bones, but I wanted to get all three powers in there, and that meant skimping on everything else....

Addendum

You have a different sort of character if the Telepathy isn't there, one more like an energy controller, but that gives you some extra points you can put into flight or another extra on the Telekinesis.

The Force Field or Telekinesis might be a stunt...instead, the character has something like Mental Blast. That's a character who is a bit more of a cannon than a psychic, but you could do it. Heck, Force Field doesn't even have to be an Extra...then it could have a different value than 5.

The extra 5 points could go toward Mental Resistance.

Traditional "helper" (NPC) psychics tend to have an Unreliable or Burnout limitation on their powers.

It might be fun for your GM if you have a Quality like "Blackouts while controlled by mentalists and extradimensional gods". (Or maybe not.)
