Psionics System for Skrell and Antags

Recommended Posts

I'm in full support of this pull request,

Porting the psionic system from Baystation will not only give us a background framework of which we can build off of for the future, but it will also give us the ability to implement lore specific abilities in a way which becomes modular in nature. The current system of Skrell abilities are implemented using the base ability tab with no other features being provided. Porting this system will  allow implants which can block psionic abilities to be added, and will also implement a system to detect and rank the potential power of an individual with a host of other features closely following. 

This is a change I am glad to see being attempted, and I feel like it will add a fair amount of roleplay to the server when it is implemented.

Skrell will get the following abilities:

- Mind Assay, it'll tell them about the psionic grade and psionic skills of another human.

- Read Mind, it'll give the person they use it on a textbox with a question that the user asks. The user will then receive the inputted response.

- Current skrell abilities.

I am in support of this as well, and the only thing I could really worry about are psionics being abused (mainly regular, barely-trained skrell using Read Mind for interrogation or shit), but that could be regulated like how current Skrellepathy is.

Read mind will essentially just be them asking you a question psionically, so. You can choose not to answer or give bullshit answers as needed.

Can’t wait to give 0w0 out as an answer. Jokes aside, will the person ICly know their mind is being read or is this just how much info your brain gives up, and only the skrell knows they did it ICly

Might finally be time to look into a skrell application...

But really, I love it. I am mildly worried we will see a lot of godmodding with people pretending their minds can't be read, but that's not a huge concern that should affect the PR at all.
