Psionics has been a part of D&D since first edition, but it has rarely been incorporated into the world. I've always been intrigued by the idea of how a fantasy civilization might evolve around psionics as opposed to magic (I admit it, I'm a fan of Julian May's Pliocene Exile books). This is an early step in that direction: a variation on the bard that relies on telepathic projection instead of music and who possesses psionic powers instead of arcane spells. As it stands, it's extremely light on fluff; fundamentally it's a bard, and only the mechanics have changed. When I have more time, I will revisit it and add more flavor.
