Discussion & Comments

  • We did not include: Past-Life Channeling (to difficult to work into a MU environment). ~ Arch
  • Spirit Channeling??? Yes? No? It says ghost in the description over and over! I R Confused! ~ Arch
  • Anti-Psi. This means they cannot take ANY other psy abilities, so my question is show this appear for mortals (vanilla) as well, or should it only show to those with the psychic template? ~ Arch
  • Doubting Thomas. Should this show up in the mortal (vanilla) Merit list?
