Eberron is also a psionic friendly setting.

Eberron is probably my favorite setting.  I can see how it might dilute psionic focus, though, since magic is so integral.  I'd be up for just about any setting.

Gestalt is a lot of fun, so level 1 gestalt would also be acceptable.  That might alleviate some of the difficulties of psionics not playing nicely in the party if each party member has more accessible options for maintaining themselves.

I agree with the OP that psionics is awesome and many GMs tend to sideline or prohibit them.

I have plans for at least two (long)campaign arcs where psionics are at a slight to significant advantage to resolve the threat.

I forewarn that my games...
...like (durian fruit) (Norwegian fermented fish) or (pineapple on pizza)...
...my games are not always the (flavor) most people are looking for, but the invitation is open to all just the same.


All my games use the same character creation space called (the adventurers guild)

mature game.

Just following up to keep this thread alive and clarify that I'm still looking for a game.  It seems like there is plenty of interest from potential players.

I could run something for this, with a preference for Pathfinder.  I have the old Expanded Psionic Handbook from 3.5E, and I just picked up Ultimate Psionics from DSP.

Some thoughts and ideas:
1.) Players starting at 5th Level.
2.) Homebrew setting - something not quite as grim as Dark Sun, but still leaning towards an "aftermath" of sorts.
3.) Semi-transparency with magic vs psionics; moderate mechanical interaction between them.

How does that resonate with folks?  Any suggestions or revisions?

Just bumping this.  Seems like there's a fair bit of enthusiastic folks looking for a game.

Yep, always up for a psionic game.

Is there a preference between 1st party and 3rd party psionics or is that not that important?

Psionics per se is only 1st party in 3.5. In Pathfinder they are 3rd party. Psychic magic is 1st party in psionics but it doesn't count (at least for me, the OP may decide otherwise)

At the risk of derailing, doesn't 1E pathfinder also have psionic classes, or are they just a variant on the arcane/divine split?

In any case, if dreamscarred press is preferred over paizo I might be able to wrangle something together since it looks like there's still solid interest.

Occult magic utilizes some of the principles of psionics (such as undercasting), but official Paizo sources don't utilize psionics in a full sense.  Ultimate Psionics, by Dreamscarred, integrates it nicely into 1E.

Dreamscarred Press can be considered the true psionics of Pathfinder. Psychic Magic is just the same spells with psionic flavor.
And there will be always interest in Psionics. We are a small but loyal bunch.

Sadly, Incarnum isn't so popular.

Ah, right, psychic magic.  For some reason I was coming up with occult.

It looks like Dreamscarred is the better option either way.

I don't want to promise anything just yet but would a module with DS psionics interest anybody?

I'd be up for it.  As noted in my first post, I have concerns about how psionics doesn't lend itself to cohesive party support - buffing tends to be much more of a hassle - but that could easily be rectified or supported.

I am sure that everybody is interested.

In 3.5 it was more difficult to find psionic supports. I recall Sangehirn, the Life Mantle of the ardents and the auras of the Divine Minds. Still... it was possible to do something.

In Pathfinder, Euterpe's Prophetic Song is psionic bard in one power. And basically everyone with the "collective" class feature is a buffer/debuffer.
