Crystal Master - Psion Prestige Class
This is a Psion Prestige class that may be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
Psionic characters have learned many ways to utilize the special psionic properties inherent in crystal, creating such wondrous items as crystal capacitors, power stones, and dorjes. In creating psicrystals, psionic characters have instilled a portion of their own personality in the crystal, resulting in their own unique crystalline companion. Some psionic characters, known as crystal masters, have ventured further into the world of crystalline studies and have chosen to focus on the properties of precious crystals known as gemstones. Through their studies, they have learned that these gemstones can enhance the powers of a psionic being by providing a focal point for the psionic being's own energies.
The research of the crystal master has led to the discovery that the enhancements become more powerful as you increase the contact that the gems have with the body. To this end, they devised a method to ensure complete contact with the gem. In a process know as embedding, the psionic character's body absorbs the gem. The gem is destroyed in the procedure since it fully integrates itself with the psionic character's body. This procedure takes a full day and is quite painful. When the procedure ends, the gem has fused with the psionic character's circulatory system in the area of the body in which the gem is placed and shows through the skin as a faint shimmer. As the psionic character adds more gems to her body, this web-like latticework ends up covering her entire body except for her hands, feet, and head; thus it can be concealed with the proper attire.
