    The Brainspawn are ancient creatures from the Far Realms, now immigrants to the Material Plane, known and feared by the wisest of psions. Resembling giant, floating brains, they seek to wipe out all intelligent life, as the mental activity of lesser creatures is as a cacophony to them. Brainspawn often tenuously ally with Illithids, as the Illithid’s thoughts do not cause any annoyance to the spawn, and their agendas often coincide with those of the Brainspawn. Certain Brainspawn have been known to keep great gardens of telekinetically shaped crystal, often populated by the pet crysmals of the spawn.

    Brain Ray (Su)
    As a standard action, a Brainspawn may fire a ray of psionic energy that disrupts mental function, a ranged touch attack with a range of 60 ft. A creature struck by the ray must make a DC 23 Will save or succumb to one of the following effects of the Brainspawn’s choice:
    • 1d8 points of Int damage
    • 10d10 points of damage
    • Any mind blank effects negated, as the shatter mind blank power
    • Confused for 4d6 rounds
    • Memory erased, as the psionic modify memory power
    • Panicked for 2d6 rounds
    • Stunned for 1d3 rounds

    The save is Int-based. The manifester level of the brain ray is 11th. All effects of the brain ray, save the mind blank negation effect, are mind-affecting.

    Manifesting
    A Brainspawn manifests powers as an 11th level Telepath.

    Typical Powers Known (139 pp/day, DC 16 + power level)
    1st–detect psionics, far hand, inertial armor, psionic charm, psionic daze (4); 2nd–brain lock, ego whip, mental disruption, psionic suggestion; 3rd–body adjustment, false sensory input, psionic blast, telekinetic thrust, 4th–mindwipe, psionic dimension door, psionic dominate, schism; 5th–catapsi, mind probe, psionic plane shift, psychic crush; 6th–mass cloud mind, psionic disintegrate

    Mindsight (Su)
    While blind, a Brainspawn has blindsight out to 60 ft. However, it can only sense intelligent creatures with this blindsight. As a swift action, it may read the thoughts of any creature it can sense with its mindsight, as the read thoughts power, unless it makes a DC 21 Will save.

    Off topic, but dare I ask what the thing is about crysmals? And deeper still, If I did so, would I recieve an actual explanation?
    Attention Imgur Users! Imgur apparently doesn't like hosting images anymore and only works in certain places or for people who already have the image cached: No one can see your avatars or images!
    Also Photobucket users? Don't know if it's a bandwidth or region lock or something, but I'm seeing some avatars blurred out with a watermark that looks like the photobucket icon.
    And Tinypic went down a while back, seeing plenty of old avatars showing their downed image.

    It's basically an inside joke. A while back, Psionic Devotee starting asking how almost everything I made interacted with crysmals, creatures from the XPH that reproduce by eating gems.

    Hmm. Well, I had forgotten some of that, but why did you end up making a bunch of crysmal related things in the first place? RL campaign stuff, Psionic Devotee's goading, crysmals mind controlling you?

    I didn't. The only thing that directly tied to crysmals was the Crystal Eidolon template.

    Hmm, on the creature....
    Well done as always. Not in my personal tastes, but great if you like it.

    The unbodied, or whatever? I thought that one was invisible. Anyways, this is more like a beholder than that.

    Question: if this does go in MitP, is there a legal problem with us taking a screenshot from Futurama of one of the brains?

    See, we want to avoid lawyers. Lawyers are the antithesis of guys having a good time at nobody's expense.

    For one, yes, there would be. For two, I'd really rather not you cartoon screenshots in this, even if they were applicable and/or legal.

    My colors are Blue/Green. I value versitality, knowledge, evolution, and the nautral world. I have a deep fascination with living things, and a natural talent for adaptation. At my best, I am intuitive and adaptive. At my worst, I am isolated and unsympathetic. My symbol is the twisted tree, and my enemy is Red/Black.
