Psyker using his own body as a force weapon while attacking unarmed

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I've been thinking of coming up with a Talent for psykers so they can use their own bodys as a force weapon while fighting unarmed and I would like your input on the matter.

 

This is what I have so far.

 

Talent: <name for the talent>

Tier: 3

Prereq: PR 4, WP 50

Aptitude 1: Willpower

Aptitude 2: Psyker

Benefit: Psyker may enhance his unarmed attacks just like they were a force weapon. The psyker add his PR to his unarmed damage and penetration and may also channel the warp just like regular force weapons.

 

Any suggestions?

Is it to cheap, expensive, does it need more prereqs etc?

Does anybody have a good name for the talent 'cos I've had a hard time coming up with one.

Is this too good? Me, I don't think so, they get force weapons sooner or later anyway.

I don't see a problem with your talent as such. A name could be: Force Grip.

 

Whether or not it is more expensive depends on how easy items come to players in your campaign. Using a force sword does not require XP beyond using low tech weapons.

 

If you want the unarmed attack to be comparable with the sword, you could consider introducing some "gloves" that enables the psyker to channel his power on a hit. There could be some small micro hooks on the gloves or whatnot.

I never considered making it a psy power. But under which discipline?

But making it a psychic power and putting it under a psychic discipline makes it only avaiable for that discipline and so everyone that wants it must get that discipline even thou they aren't interested in getting the other powers in said discipline.

I feel it is too powerfull to be put under minor psychic powers.

Maybe it's possibly to make it available for all disciplines, just make a prereq that says "Must have X number of  powers in one discipline?

 

Maybe like this:

<name of power>

Value: 500xp

Prereq: PR 4, must have 4 powers from one discipline

Action Half action

Focus Power: Difficult (-10) Willpower test

Range: Self

Sustained: Free Action

Subtype: Concentration

Effect: Psyker may enhance his unarmed attacks just like they were a force weapon. The psyker add his PR to his unarmed damage and penetration and may also channel the warp just like regular force weapons.

Transforming your own body into the conduit for your psy energy?

Looks like Biomancy for me.

 

P.S. Also when you're going melee without weapons you definitly want biomancy anyway.
