Hat of Difference - transferred to Harcourt

XP Value: 1,000 GP Value: 8,000

Unearthed Arcana

When this magical chapeau is worn, the wearer is able to assume the role of a character of any class other than that he or she actually practices.
This magical headgear only empowers assumption of 1st level, but as long as it is worn, the
possessor is able to act as a member of the named class. Any experience gained is in the
assumed role only, but it is cumulative, so if in several wearings the individual actually goes to 2nd level, then he or she retains that level whenever the hat is worn and the new class is assumed.
Such progress may continue indefinitely, but if the hat is discarded, lost or stolen, or not within a one-mile radius of its owner for any 24-hour period, then all experience in the different class is lost. The hit points of the character are always those actually possessed, just as all ability scores are those of the actual character.

Body Control
Body Control
Power Score: Con -4
Initial Cost: 7
Maintenance Cost: 5/turn
Range: 0
Preparation Time: 0
Area of Effect: personal
Prerequisite: none
This power allows a psionicist to adapt his body to a hostile environment.
The change must be keyed to a specific surrounding: water, acid, extreme heat,
extreme cold, an elemental plane, etc. If the power works, the psionicist not
only survives, he fits in like a native organism. He can breathe and move
normally, and he takes no damage simply from being in that environment.
An attack in any form does not constitute an environment. For example, a
character who can survive subarctic temperatures is still vulnerable to a cone of
Power Score - The psionicist can adapt himself to a new environment while
maintaining the power.
20 - The character becomes even more vulnerable, and the environment causes
1d4 points of damage per round (a second use of body control halts damage).
