A mythic artifact known as the Crystal Consciousness cycles toward awareness... and with its waking, the entire psionic paradigm hangs in the balance. Many seek to control the Crystal: a psionic lich, a band of fanatic arcantists, and a guild powerful in the arts of the mind. Some would use the Crystal to dictate the future of psionics, while others would use it to crush the mental arts forever. Will you harness the Crystal's power to safeguard the Six Disciplines - or create your own new discipline and doom another? In this companion piece to the popular Psionics Handbook, player characters find themselves caught up a world-shaking event. In addition, fully one-third of this accessory/adventure details all-new rules from Bruce Cordell, the designer who brought you the official psionics cap system. Inside If Thoughts Could Kill, you'll find:
  • A full-length adventure for 10th-level player characters
  • New psionic monsters - including the psionic lich and a new PC race
  • Lots of new items, powers, and even an all-new psionic prestige class
  • The new discipline of Psychonecromancy and other variant rules
  • More than 300 new powers converted from spells in the Player's Handbook and The Book of Eldritch Might
  • Bonus: Psionic Class Alternatives!
Bruce Cordell, author of the new edition of the Psionics Handbook, is also known for such adventures as The Sunless Citadel and the Origins Award-winning Return to the Tomb of Horrors.
