Psionic-focused D&D 5e
So, there's a new version of the psychic Mystic class out on WotC's Unearthed Arcana ( http://dnd.wizards.com/article...-arcana/mystic-class ). There's a lot of flexibility for one class there, and it's the first time since AD&D 2e that psionics have looked different enough from magic to be more than a reskin, to me.

Would anyone be interested in a psionics-focused game of D&D 5e set in a homebrew, Indian-flavoured setting? (That's South Asian, not Native American, to clarify) I'd like to see at least one, maybe half, potentially even all the PCs as Mystics or with a psionic version of the Magic Initiate feat to dabble with the new rules.

You should probably read the book Lord of Light by Roger Zelazny if you haven't already.  Might give you ideas...

Generally interested, would like to know more about the worls and in which direction would the game go beyond trying out psionics.

Count me as interested, it has been a long time since I have dabbled with a psionic character.

Is it just the mystic that's psionic, or are there other psionic classes in Unearthed Arcana?

It's just the one class,but the paths break it into two: One spells (essentially) and one Armor and weapons

There's actually 6 Orders, each with its own different feel.

That's pretty cool then.  Makes the thought of playing a psionic class more interesting.

6 orders with very different flavors, I just finished reading the write up and wow. There are so many different kind of characters you could roll with.

A dnd Sadhu party? And experiential material sounds great! Post a link if you go through with it.

Lots of interest! Very encouraging.

I'm not quite ready to put up a Player's Wanted ad yet (~75% done posting setting info), but those of you interested can have a look at what's there now and use it to start brainstorming character concepts:
