TRAVELLER Psionics In HERO SYSTEM Rules

This collection of kludges is to facilitate the few characters still in play that have access to Traveller style Psionic Talents but who have been migrated out of their starting campaigns. There may also be one or two cases where characters who were not from a Traveller campaign have learned to use PSI Talents. The use of PSI Talents comes in two parts: the character's Psionic Strength Rating (PSR), and the Psionic Talent groups the character can use.

Psionic Strength Rating (PSR) in Hero System is represented by a Multipower Pool driven by an Endurance Reserve. The Pool should be about 5 to 10 Active points (ACT) per point of PSR and the Reserve should be about 5 to 10 Endurance (END) per point of PSR. [The Pool should be closer to 5 than to 10. Ill have better limits in place in future.] In addition to paying character points for Psionic abilities, all the Traveller restrictions to Psionic Strength, Talents, and Levels should also apply.

Traveller PSR is normally limited to 2D6 minus age penalties of -1 per full four years of age over age 16. However, exceptions do seem to abound.

Traveller PSI Talents are acquired through training by Psionic Masters (or some such) and are determined by a semi-random game mechanic of rolling 2D6 and beating the category's threshold number at the time of training's conclusion. Each roll after the first is at a -1 cumulative modifier. The rolls may be made in any order, and any number of times per category, the player desires.

After the determination o f which categories the character may draw from the character may begin advancing their Talent Level in each of them. The advancement, in Traveller, is determined by throwing 2D6 once per month for each category and beating the advancement threshold number. In this kludge the advancement allows the spending of experience points on the associated Talents and putting them to use, provided there is a large enough Pool and Reserve to draw from. There is no limitation to the rate at which experience can be spent on the Psionic Pool and Reserve (up to the PSR limits of how big those can be).

Acquire: 6+; Exp: 8+ = +1L (both 2D6)

Telekinesis

L1-L10
ACT: 5 / 2STR=    END: 1 / 2STR=    Points: 3= 3
Effects:
Description:3 points for scaled STR of 10: 3 points = 25 ACT. Note here that Traveller TK is about as oppositely designed from Hero TK as it could be. Hero emphasizes strength over manipulation and allows partial manipulation of targets (example: lifting up target by its head and let the body dangle is possible under Hero but not under Traveller). The minimum Hero TK STR of 10 rule is also at variance since the max Traveller TK is 100kg which is STR 10. Bearing all this in mind here is the kludge: the Hero Telekinetic strength (TK STR) must be bought at STR 10 but may only be used according to the character's TK level (see table).
  • 25 + ___ = ___ ACT points total for scaled 10 STR (+0 -0.75 *1/5 = *4/35)

Teleportation Group [cost:______]

Acquire: 9+; Exp: 12+ = +1L (both 2D6)
Description:

Teleportation in Traveller is restricted to the teleporting character and very small carried loads. Teleport is not used on others except if the Special talent 'Teleport Others' is available. Also, Traveller teleportation allows the rapid acquisition of the required knowledge of the destination so the 'floating location' option must be included.

Teleporting (horizontal) to distances of over 5km require DEX roll to not stumble, beyond 50km will cause disorientation for a turn, and beyond 500 km will likely result in injury or death.

Vertical teleportation can be extremely dangerous due to induced hypothermia (going up makes you cold) or hyperthermia (going down makes you hot). The induced temperature change from elevation change will be 2.3 degrees C (or 4.2 degrees F) per 1000 meters elevation change. The damage (as normal energy attack) from this thermal shock will be about 1 DC for a full 10 meter change and +1 DC for every doubling of height.

Special Talents Group [cost:______]

Acquire: 9+; Exp: 12+ = +1L (both 2D6)
Notes:

The PSI-Special Talent is really a catch-all category for all the non-standard Traveller Psionic Talents. Some Special Talents are much more common than others. See the separate PSI-Specials description document for details of the individual Talents.

The PSI-Specials document is not meant to be a complete catalog of Talents so it will be revised as needed.


Augmentation [cost:______]

Traveller PSI-Drugs

Warning:The over-use of PSI-Drugs can be hazardous. If used three times in three days, or four times in one week, then there is a risk (9+ on 2D6) of an overdose reaction occurring within six hours. If the overdose occurs then the user becomes seriously ill for many hours (1DC per hour for 1D6+1 hours) and will very likely suffer a reduction in their Psionic Strength Rating (-1 PSR unless 10+ on 2D6).
Traveller PSI-Booster (END Reserve)
Cost: Cr1000; Avail: 8+ (2D6)
ACT: 2 per dose=    END: +25 (or +15) /dose=    Points: 1 / dose=    
Effects: additional +25 (or +15) END Reserve
Description:1 point per 25 END capacity: 1 point = 3 ACT. Booster is the most basic of the PSI-Drugs. Available in pill form it will increase the END Reserve by +25 if taken before any PSI activity or by +15 END if the Reserve is not already full (+25 END to full END Reserve +15 END otherwise). It lasts only an hour after which its additional END Reserve goes away (yes you can go below zero END Reserve it just takes longer to recover). Additional doses have no effect if taken within the hour.
