 Using this power, a psion can attune themselves with a location and gain an understanding of past events that occurred there. Using this power requires 1 minute of meditative roleplay, and spending 2 psi points. The referee will then give a short (and vague) brief about the lingering psionic resonance in the immediate vicinity. This could provide useful information or hidden clues, or could be entirely useless. Using this power in the common area at main events is unlikely to produce any useful information,​ as the resonance traces are too scattered and chaotic due to the large number of happenings taking place. This power is mostly useful at smaller events or on missions. ​ Using this power, a psion can attune themselves with a location and gain an understanding of past events that occurred there.

 This power allows psions to crystallize mental energy into a physical, crystalline form - a [[Psi Crystal]]. By collectively spending 5 psi points and 5 minutes of roleplayed action in a psionic aura, a psion or group of psions with this power can create the conditions for a psi crystal to form in a glass container. The ref overseeing the rite will retrieve a random psi crystal lammie and place it in the glass container, as long as it is still in the psionic aura at that point. Removing the container before the crystal forms will cause this power to fail. Psi crystals can be further empowered and used in certain devices and psi rituals. This power allows psions to crystallize mental energy into a physical, crystalline form - a [[Psi Crystal]].

 The greatest mastery of the Mnemomorphosis path allows a psion to fundamentally re-write the mind of another. The psion can describe 1 change to the target character'​s mind, memory or personality for every Psi Point they spend (this power requires a minimum of 3 Points spent to work).

 This power opens wormhole-like psionic portals using Elysian [[Nexus Tree|Nexus Trees]] as anchor points. The cost of the power in psi points may vary, but characters with this power may check how many psi points are required by attuning with the tree for a few moments (ask a referee and they will attempt to get back to you with an answer). Opening the portal requires attuning to the tree for 5 minutes while the psi points are spent. Multiple characters with this ability may collaborate to spend more psi points so that they may reach more distant destinations. Not all trees may be accessible at all times due to drifts in the psionic currents that connect them. Once the ritual has been performed, the portal will open at some point later during the event (once you have notified games ops of the use of this power, we will hopefully be able to find a clear slot for you to use the portal). Only Elysians and those who have had their minds altered by the [[Elysian Psionic Paths#Rank 4 - Rite of Attunement|Rite of Attunement]] power are able to use these portals. This power opens wormhole-like psionic portals using Elysian [[Nexus Tree|Nexus Trees]] as anchor points.

 This rite harmonises the minds of the participants with the wider universe, creating a connection through which wisdom and knowledge can flow. Anyone with any psionic potential (at least 1 Psi Point) can participate in a Rite of Harmony, but the rite must be led by at least one character with this power. Only characters with this power can contribute Psi Points towards the cost, but multiple characters with this power can cooperate to share the cost, which is 1 Psi Point per participant.

 This power allows a group of psions with it to attune the mind and body of another to the resonant web of energy that connects [[Nexus Tree|Nexus Trees]] together and forms Psi Crystals. The participants must spend at least 5 minute performing ritual roleplaying around the target, and spending 3 Psi Points between them. On the completion of the rite, the target character acquires a Psionic Condition that attunes them with Nexus Trees and Psi Crystals, allowing them to use their powers and traverse wormholes created with the Rite of Opening. This power allows a group of psions with it to attune the mind and body of another to the resonant web of energy that connects [[Nexus Tree|Nexus Trees]] together and forms Psi Crystals.

 This rite opens the resonant network of energy flowing through the [[Nexus Tree|Nexus Trees]] and allows its power to flood the minds of the participants,​ recharging their stores of psionic energy.

The rite requires 10 minutes of roleplayed ritual action, after which all participants regain 2 spent Psi Points. Any character participating in this rite receives a roleplaying effect for 10 minutes "you feel a powerful and euphoric sense of connectedness with all other living things",​ and cannot participate in another Rite of Recovery for at least 1 hour. This rite opens the resonant network of energy flowing through the [[Nexus Tree|Nexus Trees]] and allows its power to flood the minds of the participants,​ recharging their stores of psionic energy.

 The first technique on this path is to use the power of a psionic aura to temporarily toughen your own body tissues. By roleplaying meditation for at least 1 minute in a [[Psionic Aura]] and spending 2 psi points, the psion gains 1 Body hit on each of their locations above their maximum value - this becomes their new maximum body hits, until the power runs out after 2 hours. Note that this power does not heal someone who is injured - if a location has lost any hits when this power is applied, then the number of hits remaining on that location does not increase (although they can be healed up to the new higher value). The first technique on this path is to use the power of a psionic aura to temporarily toughen your own body tissues.

 By learning to control the movement of their blood around the body, the psion can prioritise expulsion of dangerous substances before they can build up enough to cause harm. By spending 2 psi points and roleplaying meditation for 1 minute while in a [[Psionic Aura]], the psion acquires a Psionic Condition that offers some protection from toxins, radiation, poisons and the like for the remainder of the day. This will usually increase the time it takes for the toxin to affect you or progress to subsequent stages. By learning to control the movement of their blood around the body, the psion can prioritise expulsion of dangerous substances before they can build up enough to cause harm.

 This rather heavy-handed technique seeds a pattern of calm emotion into another mind, which overrides the hosts normal neural patterns and responses to stimuli. By performing at least 2 minutes of roleplayed ritual action and spending 5 psi points, a psion or group of psions with this power can implant a Psionic Condition in the target, which suppresses their emotions as well as any roleplay effects for the remainder of the day. This rather heavy-handed technique seeds a pattern of calm emotion into another mind, which overrides the hosts normal neural patterns and responses to stimuli.
