The Prestige Psion The following text was inadvertently omitted from the Psychic Mummy prestige class:

Psychic Entombment There are those who attempt to fuse their physical bodies and psychic powers, transcending the mortal coil to become something greater. Known as psychic mummies, these beings are most often created for a specific purpose by a group of like-minded psions. The process is difficult and very dangerous, with the potential for an agonising death for the subject. Those who successfully complete the entombment process emerge as psychic mummies, creatures quite different from what they were before. This process requires a psychic tomb, a crystalline box which is sealed and locked from the outside. The psychic tomb weighs 700 pounds and costs 3,000 gp. The tomb is destroyed at the end of the process, as the energies passing through it and into the body of the subject weaken the crystal lattices. To begin the psychic entombment, the subject must fast for a full three days, meditating and preparing himself for the ordeal ahead. He then enters the psychic tomb and is sealed within its crystalline embrace. Each day thereafter, a minimum of five psions of at least 5th level must dedicate themselves to the entombment process. These psions remain within a few feet of the tomb, quietly meditating as they pour their psionic energies into the crystal. This process drains the psions’ psionic power points completely once the process begins - when a psion begins channelling his energy into the tomb, he may take no other actions of any kind for 8 hours as the bond totally consumes his concentration. Psions engaged in this process are considered helpless for combat purposes.

– anyone who wants to contribute must be involved from the beginning and must continue to be involved until the very last day. At the end of this time, the subject may or may not be transformed into a psychic mummy and may even be killed by the process. Sustained by the psychic energies of his companions, his ability to absorb the energy pumped into the tomb will determine his ability to survive. At the end of 30 days, the subject must make a successful Fortitude save (DC 30). The psion receives a +1 circumstance bonus per additional 5th-level to 9thlevel psion who provides energy for the entombment process, a +2 circumstance bonus per additional 10thlevel to 14th-level psion who provides energy, and a +3 circumstance bonus per additional psion of 15th-level or greater who provides energy. Subjects who fail by 10 or less are not killed, but they are also unfit to become psychic mummies. They may make the attempt again after one full year has passed. Those who fail the fortitude save by 11 or more, however, die during the process and do not emerge from the crumbling remains of the crystalline tomb. Though these unfortunates may be resurrected or otherwise returned to life, they may never attempt to enter this prestige class again.

This channelling of energy continues each day for 30 days and any psion who contributes energy on the first day must continue to provide energy throughout the process. Additionally, no psion may begin contributing energy after the first day
