According to the skill descriptions, there is nothing to stop any character from making untrained psynicience skill tests.  Is this correct?

I believe you need a Psy rating to use Psyniscience.


My apologies to anyone I offend; FFG staff, playtesters, and forum users alike. 

 

Please check out my Dark Heresy to Only War conversion! You can find it on the main Only War forum. I'm always looking for more people to playtest it!

Rules-as-written, there is nothing preventing anyone from making an untrained Psyniscience check, but I believe that to be just an oversight. Only psykers should be able to make Psyniscience checks.

But actualy its quite an intresting idea, what about some new talent? 


There is nothing as good as seeing rebel scum running out of a cave full of gas, right into the blasters of your battalion-–well, except sunrises, but for those you have to get up early.

Commisar: "Really? I see some right here." *BLAM!*

There is an Origin Path in RT that gives out Psyniscience without needing the Psyker trait, iirc.

Yes, it does, and it is absolutely unique because of that. It also mentions that the Inquisition is very keen on learning how exactly they manage to pull it off.

By "Very keen" I assume you mean "Planning to do an autopsy on you while you are still alive".

Just to show the actual RAW on it since it hasn't been referenced, its covered on p.111 under the Psyker trait. You must have the trait to buy psynisciance.

That said, the notion you could use it untrained is hilarious. I always did feel that was one of the failings of letting any non-specialist skill be used untrained.

It could be a result of training and experience. There comes a point where you've been exposed to warp-stuff so often that once in a very big while, you spot it happening or passing by.

Given a 30-40 score at -20, if you realise that guy there's one of those gut-wrench-inducing reality-buggerers one fifth of the time? Not too good for an educated guess, but better than nothing.
