''Psychic: The Gifted'' is yet another home-brewed creation for the NewWorldOfDarkness, created before the release of the God-Machine update and focusing on one idea: What if you didn't need magic to be a psychic? The answer, though incomplete, leads to some interesting places.

* AmplifierArtifact: Combined with PowerCrystal, Gifted can use crystals to store up and contain psychic powers to be used later, though there must be psychical contact for it to be effective.
* DreamLand: The Mindscape, containing all the surface thoughts and emotions of mankind.
* FiveStagesOfGrief: Used as part of how the Gifted view their abilities and act in a similar way, tese "Mindsets" can change over time depending on the psychic in question and how they learn to view their gifts.



* PowerIncontinence: Called "Flares", happens when a psychic's mental control slacks off and erupts on others.

Added DiffLines:

''[[http://psychicthegifted.wikidot.com/ You had a normal life once.]]''

There are many psychic powers in the World of Darkness. Vampiric mesmerism, werewolf lunacy, everything a mage can do, but are any of these truly psychics? Do they use the power of the mind and mind alone to accomplish their goals? No, they use their magics, their abilities. Actual psychics in the World of Darkness seem to be in short supply.

At least, they used to be.

!!This game provides examples of:
* [[IHateYouVampireDad I Hate You Psychic Dad]]: One class of psychics, the Converted, are created when other Gifted use their abilites to open up the mind. Suffice to say this is not always appreciated.
* PowerIncontinence: Called "Flares", happens when a psychic's mental control slacks off and erupts on others.
