Mindbenders are those Psionicists who shun telekinesis as an impure
application of the Science, and focus instead on telepathic magic. This
focus on the purity of mind-on-mind domination makes Mindbender spells
much harder to resist, and their attack spells more damaging.
This is a Prestige Class for Psionicists, and they retain the original class's Prime Requisite,
in this case, Intelligence. As a Psionic class, they possess a Psion's
higher degree of success with spells such as deception. Mindbenders are
prone to the type of arrogance that can lead a caster down darker paths.
They can become Sorcerors earlier than Psions can.
