    Default You are single classed lvl 20 Psion in real life

    So what powers would you have, and what would you do if you where a level 20 psion right now ?

    Me - I'm all for teleportation and reading minds.

    Regardless of the specific powers:

    Step 1: Figure out a way to make easy money using my powers, preferably in a way that doesn't reveal my powers and consists of providing an actual legit service or product in exchange for money so as not to offend my own morals. Then again, divinations/hypercognition + stock market is very tempting.

    Step 2: Figure out any other ways in which I can use my powers to substantially improve my own life without it being noticed. Teleportation, telekinesis, removing the need to eat/sleep, etc. are all good choices.

    Step 3: Make sure I have at least a few emergency and get-out-of-jail-free type powers for if things ever go horribly wrong or I am discovered.

    Step 4: Finish school, pay off all my debts, get married, and live the easy life.

    Step 5: Use at least some of my extra free time, boredom, and power to help the rest of the world somehow. Dunno how exactly.

    Actually, that's pretty much my 5-step plan for any significant fantasy change in my life - getting super powers, winning the lottery, getting wishes, etc.

    I walked between the worlds,
    and when I woke I never knew
    to which side I had fallen

    But... so many people in the world have been decerebrated

    Honestly... I don't know. Having that level of power is too great for any one person.
    Funny, I always figured I'd be killed by a paladin.
    So, what you're saying is we rolled a 1 on our credit check?

    Assuming no-one else has any magic/psionic power, I would find some way of making myself immune to non-magical attacks. Then, I would become incredibly wealthy and live on an island mansion.

    I'd take on incredibly difficult challenges until I gain sufficient XP to gain epic psionics.

    I then subtly raise a small fortune, spend it on further research, and start getting into big stuff, like giving everyone on Earth a permanent +4 to their Wisdom scores or something.

    Save scum and gamble, earning enough money to buy the XP of a few hundred bums to fuel Genesis. What I'll do with my private demiplane (that can't be used the wreck the economey or time traits) I don't know, but it would be cool. Actually, I'd likely use a bum fueled "alter reality" first for some useful stuff (become a la+1 divine minion...).

    First, I'd try to figure out how to either get a double-digit Int score or how to learn & manifest powers without it.

    Then the rest should be easy.

    Why lottery when you can "convince" people to give you things for free all the time?
    Sure, attracts attention, but technically you are doing nothing illegal, you just "talk" so good that people get confused and do whatever you want.

    Plus, mindreading can be amusing as hell.

    But seriously, I would stick to mind control tricks for fun and profit.

    first i'd secure a reasonable lifetime income via influence powers or hypercognition, then i'd research a 9th level psionic single target (no save) truth spell with a long duration (days/weeks per level) + gigantic range and continually cast it on politicians while they are running for office that or a "stimulate critical thought" power that would affect entire nations. i like the idea of giving everyone in the world a +4 wis, but why stop there, +4 wis AND int! after that was dealt with i'd use psychic chiurgery alot to open a free clinic to try and heal the mentally ill/disabled, i'd do physical ailments too if i could figure out a way to heal others with psionics too. ooooh and theres a power from BoEF that finds the perfect mate for whoever you cast it on, if i could come up with a psionic version i could make my money by casting that for a small profit for anyone who asked.

    The lottery winning would be nice, but even if you knew the numbers, how would you make sure you got the winning ticket?

    Anyways, I'd find out the next super-company and buy almost all of it just as it was founded. Then, when it was at its peak I'd sell the stocks.

    Well, I'd pick genesis, teleport, sustenance, charm and dominate.
    Genesis is for a permanent home that always 'follows' me.
    Teleport is for travelling.
    Sustenance, well, no need to eat. Nice!
    So, there I have it, I'll never go hungry and I'll always have a place to stay, no matter where I go.
    And if I want to do something fun, say go partying, use charm/dominate to get past the guards and not having to pay. I'd never need money either.

    Then travel and marvel at the world for the rest of my life. And when I get old, either a true mindswitch if I feel the need to live longer, or just pass on.
    Every time I post a statement feel free to add 'In my opinion...' whenever applicable.

    What level spread is the rest of the planet? Are there secret, hidden high-level psionicists or mages or monsters that I'd have to deal with? Am I built like a D&D human with 20 levels of psion (and nothing else), five stat increases, eight base feats etc.? Are magic items available? Can I craft psionic items? What's the exchange rate for a gold piece? Do I have WBL? Access to all the normal planes? If I use up XP, can I replace it? Did I gain all my levels at once, or did I have to "play through" them?

    This is a fairly involved question, even before I try to work out my RL stats.
