Shadowmind - Psion Prestige Class

This is a Psion Prestige class that may be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign

Specter in the thoughts of the unwary, the shadowmind moves through the twisting pathways of the mind as easily as she slides through the dark alleyways of the city. A shadowmind blends psionic powers and uncanny stealth into an effective whole. Although they can be capable spies or thieves, shadowminds view themselves as much more. Shadowminds see their training and psychic powers as an extension of a deep self-examination process that requires the knowledge of the innermost goals and motivations of others.

While a few shadowminds are trained in secret by governments, covert cabals, and the like, most train at a distant monastery. These ascetics forsake many of the worldly goals they had before joining the shadowmind monastery, instead devoting themselves to peering inside the minds and secrets of others. The rigorous training stresses the need to see the faults and secrets of others as extensions of the shadowmind's own experiences. To a shadowmind, enlightenment and true undemanding come from using the secret motivations of others as a means of self-awareness.

Most shadowminds begin their careers as psions and later diversify their skills and abilities by taking a level of rogue. Psychic warriors also find the class appealing, although they are more likely to multiclass as a ranger or ninja than as a rogue. Although wilders can qualify for the class as easily as psions, few wilders become shadowminds.
