Space Patrol: Psi


50 points

You possess mental abilities that set you apart from other humans. You use these powers in service to the Patrol, but there are legal restrictions. For example, mind reading is illegal without a warrant. Any form of compulsion or mind control is illegal except in moments of extreme danger to the officer or civilians.

Psionics is an emerging field of study. You may be one of the leading experts on the subject in most sectors. The fact that psi is little understood means that suspects will underestimate you. Use this to your advantage as much as you use your actual abilities.

Advantages: Unusual Background (Psi) [10]. ● Two levels of Psionic Talents from the available powers [10]. ● Choose a 25-point package from GURPS Psis in one of the available powers. ● One psionic perk from Psionic Powers in a power you have.
Skills: Expert Skill (Psionics) (H) IQ [4].

For those who may not be familiar, Discworld is the setting of an extremely popular series of fantasy novels written by Sir Terry Pratchett. The Disc consists of a flat, circular plane resting on the backs of four elephants who in turn stand on the shell of an enormous turtle which swims through space. It began as a fairly traditional — if satirical — fantasy world, but through over 40 novels, Pratchett advanced the setting into a rich canvas on which to poke fun at the peculiarities of modern life.
