 All psychic powers have a subtype in their format (usually: No, Attack or Concentration).

 Can anyone advise what the purpose of these classifications are, as there is no description on pg 213 (BC Rulebook) of this entry.


Many thanks.

You can only make 1 Action of any given subtype in a Round.

So if you Focus a Power that has the Attack subtype, you may not fire your boltpistol the same Round. But you could Focus another Psychic power as long as it has a different Subtype, or make any other Action that does not have the Attack subtype.

And for reference, all the Actions and Action Sub-Types are explained in the Combat chapter.
