Mind Mage - Psion Prestige Class
This is a Psion Prestige class that may be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
The mind mage is an introspective arcanist who uses his self-awareness to understand the mysteries of the world around him. Anyone who can meet the prerequisites can use psi-spell feats, but the resulting blends of psionic and magical power are not merely extra abilities to a mind mage. To him, they are the only effective way to access power - casting spells or manifesting psionic powers without blending the two is as mundane to him as basic weaponplay is to wizards and psions. Festooned with tattoos that trace routes of power over his body and swathed in voluminous robes that shimmer with magical runes, the mind mage is the ultimate psi-spellcaster, the perfect blending of internal strength and external power.
Most mind mages are illithids. Aside from the fact that the mind flayers developed the technique that defines this class, their burgeoning intellects and impressive psionic abilities make them naturals for it. But although they guard their secrets zealously, illithids have been known to share their knowledge on occasion, and a few members of other races have also attained entry into the prestige class. Most of these non-illithid mind mages are illithidkin, though there are a few that are not blind servants to the Illithid Empire. Psion/wizards and psion/sorcerers are virtually the only characters who possess the aptitude and interest to become mind mages.
