Protokinesis Feats

Protokinesis feats represent innate telekinetic abilities, powers usable with minimal thought and effort in contrast to the magic of the telekinesis sphere. They often develop unintentionally, without need for training or even awareness of them.

Unless noted otherwise, the benefit granted by any protokinesis feat is a spell-like ability with a caster level equal to your character level. In addition, protokinesis feats do not function when you are unconscious.

The effects of protokinesis feats last indefinitely unless otherwise noted, though they may be dismissed as a free action, or restarted as a standard action if they have been dispelled or dismissed.

Counterweight (Protokinesis)

Prerequisites: Acrobatics 3 ranks, Telekinesis Sphere

Benefit: By applying your telekinetic powers to your own body you can stand on surfaces that could not normally support your weight, allowing you to balance on a single thread or walk across liquid, though you must still make Acrobatics checks to balance on narrow or difficult surfaces. You cannot walk on normal gaseous substances such as air or clouds, though you could balance on a solid fog spell. In addition, you may add your casting ability modifier as a bonus to Acrobatics checks.

Force Shield (Protokinesis)

Prerequisites: Telekinesis Sphere

Benefit: By forming a thin field of telekinetic force with your hand as a swift action you can gain a +2 shield bonus to your armor class. Unlike an actual shield it imposes no spell failure or armor check penalty and does not count as wielding a shield for the purposes of class features and other effects. You must keep at least one hand free to maintain your force shield.

Gravitic Anomaly (Protokinesis)

Prerequisites: Telekinesis Sphere, Counterweight

Benefit: Due to your control over your personal gravity, you can move on walls and ceilings and other surfaces as if they were the ground. If you are tripped or fall prone, the area’s normal gravity reasserts itself and you fall to the ground, taking falling damage as appropriate for your distance above the ground.

Kinetic Drift (Protokinesis)

Prerequisites: Character level 5th, Telekinesis Sphere, Counterweight

Benefit: You can float above the ground instead of walking. You can hover up to 1 ft above the ground, allowing you to ignore difficult terrain. When falling you may choose to descend at a slower rate to control your fall and to negate all falling damage you would take. Each round you descend 30 ft, and may move in another direction for 30 ft. You may choose to drift sideways, gliding forwards while descending, or down, safely increasing your rate of descent. You may even choose to drift ‘upwards’ to reduce your rate of descent, even allowing you to negate it entirely and hover midair.

Mind Limb (Protokinesis)

Prerequisites: Telekinesis Sphere

Benefit: Your telekinetic powers give you an additional arm made of telekinetic force. Your telekinetic limb functions much as a normal arm can, but to an extent can also act independently. As a swift action you can use it to draw a sheathed or hidden weapon, ready a shield, retrieve a stored item, load a crossbow, open a door, pick up an unattended item, sheathe or store an item, or take other non-offensive actions involving manipulating objects. Your telekinetic limb cannot effectively wield weapons or shields or activate magic items, but can pass such items to another hand as part of any other action it takes.

Telekinetic Exoskeleton (Protokinesis)

Prerequisites: Character level 3rd, Telekinesis Sphere

Benefit: With your telekinesis you can supplement your physical skills. As a swift action you can give yourself one of the following benefits:

  • Tactile Telekinesis: You add your casting ability modifier as a bonus to Strength checks, and Climb and Swim checks.
  • Dampening Field: You gain temporary hit points equal to your casting ability modifier. They do not stack with themselves or other temporary hit points.
  • Propelling Force: You gain a +10 ft enhancement bonus to your movement speeds.

These benefits lasts indefinitely. If you activate one of these benefits while a previous benefit is still in effect, the first benefit ends immediately.

Touchsense (Protokinesis)

Prerequisites: Perception 5 ranks, Telekinesis Sphere

Benefit: You can use your telekinesis to sense your surroundings, passively measuring vibrations in the ground. You gain tremorsense with a 15 ft range.

Special: If you possess the Kinetic Sense talent, add 15 ft to the range of the tremorsense it provides.
