Having just purchased the 3.5 OGL package, I noticed that d20 psionics (power points, feats, augmentation mechanics) seems to be enabled and working properly.

Is there any technical reason why this same .user package can't be used in Pathfinder to support 3pp (Dreamscarred press) psionics?

Yes many as d20 HL and Pathfinder HL are NOT the same software. Under the covers they do many many things differently and have vastly gone down different development paths.

Also the one problem is that d20 has no way to output Powers to any paper character sheet. Either custom or the built in one. So even if I did get the d20 stuff to work, and I have already researched into it, it would be useless for anyone using Pen and Paper. Read THIS post and the next several as I cover allot of the different issues in detail and what the current goal of PSU is.

The other major reason being LW has already said that if Paizo does Psionics then the frame work/skeleton will be changed to work with Paizo's rules not PSU rules which are pretty close to 3.5.

Personally, I'd pay additional money for a module that supports a power point system for powers. I'm sure a lot of my psionics afficionados would as well.

Create a add-on for Dreamscarred Psionics systems, Lone Wolf. You'll make money on it.

Lone Wolf: Paizo has nothing going on for Psionics here is a post from their CEO about psionics -- http://paizo.com/threads/rzs2ldvz?Future-of-Psionics#6 This was from 2010 and in nearly 3 years they haven't had a peep about any psionics content.

This is a massive feature request by a great many of your software users. As I stated before, many would even pay money for the add-on. I see no rational reason why this isn't supported, given the framework is already present in 3.5. The port over should be relatively simple.

Quintain,

Check out this post in the thread just below this one: http://forums.wolflair.com/showpost....&postcount=140

That's the latest version of the Dreamscarred Press files. I'm still working on the Psionics Expanded dataset slowly but surely.

Tc,

Understood. I'm part of the Ultimate Psionics kickstarter and have been in contact with Jeremy on this.
