Bonus power points from having a high ability score can be gained only for the character's highest psionic class. Mind War Known : A war mind chooses his powers from Mind War psychic warrior power list. At 1st level, a war mind knows one psychic warrior power of your choice. At every even-numbered level higher than 1st, he learns one new power. A war mind can manifest any power that has a power point cost equal to or lower than his manifester level. The total number of powers a war mind can manifest per day is limited only by his daily power points.
In other words, Mind War, a 5th-level war mind with a total of 20 power points, not counting any gained for a high Wisdom score could manifest a power costing 1 power point twenty times in one day, a power costing 5 power points four times in one day, or any combination of power Mind War costs that does not exceed 20 power points in total.
A war mind simply knows his powers; they are ingrained in his mind. He does not need to prepare them in the way that some spellcasters prepare their spellsthough he must get a good night's sleep each day to regain all his spent power points.
Maximum Power Level Known : A war mind gains the ability to learn one 1st-level power when he takes his first level in the prestige class.
As he attains each even-numbered level beyond 2nd, a war mind gains the ability to master more complex powers. A 4th-level war mind can learn powers of 2nd level or lower, a 6th-level war mind can learn powers of 3rd level or lower, and so on. For example, a war mind with a Wisdom score of 13 can manifest powers of 3rd level or lower. Chain of Personal Superiority Ex : At 1st level, a war mind learns the first principle of warfare for the individual combatant: the ability to both deal punishment and take it.
A war mind can use this power three times per day. Activating this power is a free action. Chain of Defensive Posture Ex : At 2nd level, a war mind learns the second principle of warfare for the individual combatant: the ability to avoid the enemy's counterattacks if that enemy is not immediately overwhelmed.
Enduring Body Ex : At 3rd level, a war mind learns the third principle of warfare for the individual combatant: to unleash in oneself the spirit of the enduring body. The Talariic texts tell of the perfect warrior, a legend named Ununquam the Vanquisher, who lived many thousands of years ago but who achieved deeds that live on through the texts.
Sweeping Strike Ex : At 5th level, a war mind gains the ability to make great, sweeping swings with a melee weapon. On each melee attack a war mind makes, he can choose squares he threatens that are adjacent to each other, and his attacks apply to creatures in those two squares equally. A war mind can use this ability on any attack, even an attack of opportunity or a cleave attempt.
A war mind cannot use this ability if he has moved more than 10 feet since the end of his last turn. If a war mind drops one or both of his foes with a sweeping strike, he can attempt a cleave normally; however, he makes only one cleave attempt per sweeping strike, even if he drops more than one foe. Sinclair enters the Zocalo, where Garibaldi informs him about the identified epicenter of the disturbance — but shows him that it is behind some kind of energy field completely enveloping part of Blue The field is impenetrable.
They leave to find Bester again and insist on some answers. Sinclair angrily tells them that they withheld information that put the entire station at risk. The Psi Cops coldly remark they did what they thought was best. They relent and give some answers. Bester explains that Ironheart is no longer entirely human. In the ruins of Blue 16, Ironheart meditates, attempting to calm his mind and prevent further outbursts. Meanwhile, Sakai exits hyperspace and heads in on Sigma Bester goes on to explain that during the last of the experiments Ironheart was involved with, he began to exhibit a long list of irrational behaviors, culminating in his murdering of the head researcher and fleeing Mind War facility.
At each step along his flight, his abilities have increased exponentially. Bester admits that withholding information was done because they worried if word got out, alien governments might try to seize him before they could. Ivanova angrily tells them off. Kelsey explains that a telepathic "safe word" was implanted in Ironheart that they can deliver if he is in a line of sight.
The safe word will put him to sleep, allowing them to apprehend him. Winters approaches the energy field in an isolated corridor. She calls to Jason, and he allows the field to lapse in that corridor long enough for her to enter. She finds him among the wreckage. He explains that seeing her was necessary to help him keep his power in check, but admits that coming there put her and everyone aboard at risk.
He then warns her that the Psi Corps is beginning to manipulate EarthGov and other entities on Earth in terrible ways.
He also tells her that he is becoming something else. Talia approaches Cmdr. Sinclair and admits that she has seen Ironheart. She asks him to come with her alone. He came to say good-bye, because his abilities are growing beyond control and soon he will be "become. At SigmaSakai begins to scan the planet.
Just as she mocks the warnings she's heard about the place, a strange disturbance near the planet begins to develop. Soon, a strange, huge alien ship appears for a few minutes and then disappears. Its presence overwhelmed the engines of Catherine's ship, trapping it in the planet's gravity well. Catherine struggles to find a solution to her predicament falling towards the planet but her ship has almost no power left.
Fortunately, a pair of Narn fighters soon come into orbit. One of them answers, introducing himself as Sh'Drog and explaining they were dispatched by Ambassador G'Kar to assist her. They relate they will pull her out of her decaying orbit and escort her back to Babylon 5. Sinclair meets with Ironheart. He explains that the Psi Corps is obsessed with control — over everything. He explains that as his powers increased, he gained control over not just matter but energy itself.
He admits that it is a power man is not meant to have, and that the Psi Corps will dissect him if they seize him. Sinclair asks why he should trust Ironheart, especially after Ironheart murdered the researcher. Jason admits the deed, but says he did to ensure no one else would become what he is.
He pleas with Sinclair, and Winters supports him. Jason asks just for enough time to finish his transformation, promising to be gone forever after that. Sinclair contacts Garibaldi, ordering him to clear a path to a docking bay so that he and Jason can come out safely. As the order is carried out, Bester and Kelsey suspect something is amiss and enter the corridor to confront Ironheart as Sinclair and Winters escort him.
Ironheart winces in pain and declares he won't go back. The Psi Cops hit him with the "safe word," causing him to become distracted and lose control of his powers. Bester recovers and shoots Jason, and he responds by knocking him out with an energy blast. Jason hurries to his ship, where he quickly exits the station.
As his ship hovers nearby, suddenly an energy field envelops it. Jason, now a being of pure energy, announces that he has "become. Ironheart then bids Sinclair farewell, promising to see him again "in a million years," before disappearing. Sinclair and Garibaldi confer with Bester in Sinclair's office, where they show him the video feed of Jason as an energy being.
Sinclair explains about how there will soon by an "accident" that will erase that file. He suggests "something close to the truth," namely that Ironheart's ship exploded after it left the station.
He flatly states that if Bester does not go along with it, he will report how Bester lied to them and through his interference Jason not only escaped but was able to kill Kelsey. Sinclair also insists that Talia not be reprimanded for her actions. Bester responds with silence, implying agreement by getting up and giving Sinclair a strange salute, remarking "be seeing you.
Garibaldi then asks Sinclair how much of what Ironheart told him will he relate to the Senate. Sinclair replies that, with no evidence, it is just a conspiracy theory from someone who was delirious and paranoid from his symptoms.
Garibaldi then wonders aloud about Winters and the "gift" Jason said he gave her. Alone in her quarters, Winters places an old U. Slowly, she is able to inch it across the table with her mind. Once back aboard Babylon 5, Catherine finds G'Kar and thanks him for his help, admitting she misjudged him. She asks him about the aliens at Sigma He responds that they are ancient beings who, if they are aware of the younger worlds at Mind War, it is no more than humanoids are aware of ants.
And I am both terrified and reassured to know there are still wonders in the universe, that we have not yet explained everything. Whatever they are, Ms. Sakai, they walk near Sigma
In reality, Fort Bragg, by , was already a hotbed of mind-war experimentation. Among the programs carried out at remote corners of the sprawling special operations base: the Goat Lab, where a team of New Age-trained Special Forces soldiers attempted to burst the hearts of goats, in an adjacent holding pen, through the power of psychic. Mind war As engaging as either of the other books in this series and more interesting in the traps and ethical quandaries presented by the bad guys. The opening of Pandora's box is believable and I look forward to the author's ideas for where to take the characters next/5.
