Githyanki Paragon

The heroes of the Githyanki are warriors, plain and simple. They combine the sword skills with psionic talents. Gifted with a sword of Astral Silver as a gift from the race as a whole, the Githyanki Paragons learn to shape space.

Class Features

All of the following are class features of the Githyanki Paragon.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: The Githyanki Paragon gains proficiency with martial weapons, heavy armor, and shields (but not tower shields).

Spellcasting: <-Delete this section if this class does not stack with an existing spellcasting class->

Sword of the Silver Sky: A Githyanki Paragon has been gifted with a silver longsword or bastard sword infused with the power of the Astral Plane. It's a magic weapon with an enhancement bonus of 1/3 his character level (round up), and the Ghost Touch property, and it's slightly transparent, with ripples traveling up and down the blade's length, appearing solid in some places and nearly invisible in others. If he gains sufficient renown, the crafters in the Githyanki cities will add further properties to it for him, with things like Aberration Bane and any space or time-bending properties he wants--provided he's sufficiently badass (read: high level) to be worthy of them.

Note: It's uncommon, but not unheard to see a weapon other than a sword have these properties. Usually, they're solid-piece slashing or piercing weapons with a definite handle (axes, rapiers, scimitars, etc.). The Gith craftsman say they're still working on spiked chains and flails and the like.

Psychic Feedback (Ex): Technically speaking, you're psychic rubber and your enemies are glue. Any mind affecting effect that you save against bounces back and hits your enemy. This can range from pointless (charm monster) to deadly (mind blast).

Psionics (Sp): The Githyanki Paragon gains the Psionics sphere at Basic Access.

Conduit of the Mind (Su): The other planar races can make snide remark about how much the Githyanki love their swords all they want. The fact is, the things are incredibly attuned to their masters. When a Githyanki is holding his own personal Sword of the Silver Sky, he has it at Advanced access because the Sword helps him channel his psionic energies more efficiently. Should he ever lose his Silver Sword by any means, it takes another one a month to attune to him. However, any Githyanki whose Sword was lost or broken can expect to be treated like his balls had suddenly fell off; i.e., a total wimp. This lasts until two months after he's got another Sword attuned to him, or until he does something awesome. Whichever comes first.

Mind Fang (Su): The Githyanki Paragon can perform a swipe (read: An attack action and can therefore be used to do a full attack) which uses the essence of the Astral inside him and his psionics to create a 'bullet' in space. This does his weapon damage which all applicable bonuses and critical modifiers, and has a 30- foot range increment, unless he's using his special Silver Sword to perform the attack, in which case it's 60-foot range increments.

Ex-Githyanki Paragon

Betraying the Githyanki society is pretty much the only thing that will get you kicked out, and then any Githyanki who's heard about it will try to kill you when they meet you.
