Resisting Psionics with 'Mental Strength'?

Post by TheoOfSilverton » Sun Dec 31, 2017 12:43 am

Page 78 of Stellar Adventures that the target may resist a psionic attack with PSIONICS + Mental Strength.
I haven't come across any other references to Mental strength in special skills, talents, or psionic special skills...

What am I missing?

You're right, I can't find a definition of Mental Strength anywhere else as well.
Overall, it "smells" like a Special Skill that maybe didn't make it to the published version (apart from this mention), a bit similar to (physical) "Strength" Special Skill of AFF2 (that doesn't seem to exist as well in Stellar Adventures ruleset).

Maybe it's just your highest special skill?
Just an idea though.

I think you may be right Nuvole!, It does feel like a Special Skill which has been edited out.

I'll keep 'Mental Strength' in reserve for any characters with superb mental abilities, such as the galaxy's greatest detective, or super logical science officers...

Cheers.

Oops! Yes, there was a Mental Strength special skill.

Maybe it is something that a secret society could teach the Hero as part of their induction or else have a new Talent that allows the hero to develop this special skill?

Thanks for clearing this up!
I'm just pleased that I hadn't missed something.
