I have to say i'm concerned with the pyrokenesis power.  Setting a car on fire is a very very powerful skill.


Agreed.
Maybe allow only a very small chance for it to work, or if it has the same effect as a car starting on fire in a scout, maybe only allow this to be learned at 200 skill or something.


I'm glad I'm not the only one who singled this ability out from the start! The potential damage caused by this ability is enormous!

Well, I didn't read everything in the topic but a level 1 spec should be defensive in nature with a decent bubble effect.
Reduce Enemy Effects: (what ever you wanna call it)
Takes a level off enemy Psi skill
Attacks reduced to 0 means 50-50 shot at level 1 effect

Where there is attack, there is defense.

Just a random one that came to mind...

Deflect: Cause a bullet(s) to richochet off of your car as it's hit. Depending on where you are and where you're hit, the richochet could easily hit an ally. Higher skills can deflect rockets. "Psi power" goes down for each turn Deflect is on.

I would make it more powerful like immune to all offensive psi powers self and occupants of same vehicle and vehicle itself.  A defensive power like this would find use very rarely...if ever.

Basic skill:
Psionic dodge. The user becomes very difficult to hit. They see where the barrel of their enemy's weapon is pointed and know when they'll shoot. Requires deep concentration.

This would be a skill used when there's a breach; instead of the character being a sitting duck they'll note where and when the incoming ordinance is coming and avoid picking up blue text.

"Godspeed." The user, as a pedestrian, can run at 1.5 times his normal speed, at level 2 he can run at 2 times his normal speed.... be great if the ganger had to run from his vehicle, and as he got out, activated this spec and was able to actually run away for once, and escape.

Longo, ever tried doing the "Speed of the wolf" a few time, each time increases the speed stat about 5 - 10, my psi can do it 10 or so times before reaching any danger, granted, if I don't fail any...

Too good to pass up...

Nature Powers
Rapid Growth- spike shredding thorned bushes grow up from the barren ground. Could also manifest as impassable trees or some other flora.
Animal Manipulator- Animals ignore you or flee in terror.

Other
Body Swap- Change bodies with a targeted player/npc character. Keep your skills, but adopt their abilities, age, and (most importantly) position on the battlefield.

What about some abilities for mutants on foot, i.e "some ferocious animal-like leap" or something? (in the hand gunner skill maybe?)

can jump over cars etc...

Just had a thought maybe these kind of abilities could come in deferent flavors depending on the mutant's model, like "claw of death" for the crustacean guys for example, and the leap thing for the animal mutants?

Hope this doesn't sound too X-Menish


btw back ont topic, when are we going to see some specialisms for psi mutants? I for one have one gangster who just reached 50+

Psionics are almost entirely achieved through specialisms, Tinker. There's a basic set but after that the Psi character gains sets of related powers via specialisms.

Er.. when I have implemented them, that is..

Mirage

When a psionic character exits a vehicle, a decoy double exits also. Both the real ped and the decoy can be controlled independantly.

Clone
Character creates a temporary duplicate crewmember, except both characters suffer a temporary halving of skills. (I.e. an 80 gunner psionic would become a 40 gunner and the clone would be a 40 gunner.  Specialisms are retained.)

Clone takes up 20 bulk (so can only be created if there's enough space) but has no weight.

Clone can't leave the car.

Clone absorbs no damage, but is injured exactly as the original character is injured.

Maybe instead of an arbitrary "fade out" the psionic character would get a warning that the clone would fade out the next turn, and they'd have to pass another psi roll to continue the clone.
