There is a world just around the corner of your mind
where reality is an intruder and dreams come true.
You may escape into it at will, you need no secret password,
magic wand or Alladins Lamp, all you need is your own imagination...

On 21-Apr-97, Seb Berendse set out across the seas with this message:
- ->'Also present was a strange cloaked figure that seemed to be able to stun

- ->Psionics in Cerilia?? Explain please.
The creature in question is a Awnshegh that I designed to be a powerful enemy
for my players. He is similar in appearance to a mind flayer, and yes does
have Psionic abilities, the only creature in my campaign to do so. Most of the
psionic powers he has however are not that dangerous.
For stats see the MM entry on Psionic mindflayers.
As for the reason to introducing psionics. Well if most of your players are
around 15th level or so they tend to be a bit hard to control with magic due
to their good saving throws, but are vunerable to psionic powers.
From the Darkness we came
And to the Darkness we must return.
