    Default Kinetic Adept [PrC]

    Kinetic Adept

    Kinetic Adepts are psychics who manifest an unusual form of telekinesis. Rather than simply moving objects with their mind, they actually form a telekinetic “arm”, an unseen third limb just as useful as any physical arm. Though this form of telekinesis is perhaps less powerful than that commanded by a master psychokineticist, it is much more useful to psychics who engage in direct combat, giving them a third arm with which to fight.

    Class Features
    All the following are class features of the Kinetic Adept prestige class.

    Weapon and Armor Proficiency
    You gain no additional weapon or armor proficiencies.

    Manifesting
    Whenever you gain a new Kinetic Adept, except at 1st level, you gain new power points per day and powers known as if you had also gained a level in a manifesting class you belonged to before you added the prestige class level. You do not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained.

    Kinetic Arm (Su)
    At 1st level, you manifest an “arm” of telekinetic force. This arm can do almost anything a normal arm could. Though you cannot attack with weapons wielded in your kinetic arm, you can use it to hold objects or wield a shield. You can wear magic items on your kinetic arm, although you are still restricted by the limit on the number of magic items you can gain the benefit of–for example, you could not wear a magic ring on all three arms and gain the benefit of all three. You cannot make unarmed attacks with your kinetic arm, and it is unaltered by powers such as claws of the beast that transform your arms. If you use your kinetic arm to assist in a skill that normally requires both hands–such as Climb or Open Lock–then you gain a +2 circumstance bonus on the check. Your kinetic arm is invisible, being made of force alone, but a character under the effect of the true seeing spell or the aura sight power can see it as a faint outline of an arm.

    Kinetic Reach (Ps)
    You can extend your kinetic arm in order to accomplish feats of long-range telekinesis. You may use far hand at will as a psi-like ability, with manifester level equal to your own. However, for the duration of this ability, you lose the benefits of your kinetic arm. If you were holding anything or wearing anything on your kinetic arm when you use this ability, then they all fall to the ground at your feet. At 3rd level, you may use your choice of telekinetic force or telekinetic thrust once per day when you use this ability. At 5th level, you may use them three times per day.

    Greater Kinetic Arm (Su)
    At 4th level, you gain the ability to attack with weapons wielded in your kinetic arm. You may wield a two-handed melee weapon with all three hands, allowing you to add one and a half times your Strength bonus to all damage rolls made with it. You can make unarmed strikes with your kinetic arm, and when you use a power such as claws of the beast, your kinetic arm transforms along with your others, granting you three claw attacks. Unarmed strikes or claw attacks made by your kinetic arm deal force damage. If you have the Two-Weapon Fighting, Improved Two-Weapon Fighting, or Greater Two-Weapon Fighting feats, you may exchange them for the Multiweapon Fighting, Improved Multiweapon Fighting, or Greater Multiweapon Fighting, as appropriate.
    I no longer actively read the forums, and probably won't respond to any PMs. I'm fine with people using my homebrew in anything, including fan-compilations and wikis, as long as you credit me.

    Can you cast touch spells through the third arm?
    Why's Psionic Body a pre-req?
    Could you sit on your arm and fly?

    Yep. Works just like a normal arm.

    Why's Psionic Body a pre-req?
    I felt that it makes sense, infusing your body with psychic energy in preparation for creating a limb of energy.

    Could you sit on your arm and fly?
    No. Could you do that with a normal arm? Note that, once you hit 3rd level, you could use your kinetic reach ability to fling yourself through the air. Not quite flying, though.

    How fast does the arm move? Or is it always right next to you?
    Could you use Fling Ally to throw yourself, then catch yourself, then throw yourself, etc.?

    The latter. It extends from and is part of your body, just like a normal arm.

    Could you use Fling Ally to throw yourself, then catch yourself, then throw yourself, etc.?
    Since the fling ally feat doesn't allow you to throw yourself, no, you cannot.
