The psychic is a sub-class of magic-user that learns to focus his innate mental powers to create astounding psychic phenomena. Psychics must go though a training regimen not dissimilar to monks. But where monks train their bodies, psychics train their minds.

Fortress of the Mind (1st): Psychics train their minds to be a veritable fortress of intellect. This gives them a +1 bonus on saving throws against mental magics (ESP, charm person, etc) and the powers of other psychics. At 6th level, their intellect fortress becomes a tower of iron will and their saving throw bonus improves to +2.
Psychic Powers (1st): At levels 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, and 11 the psychic opens the door to a new psychic power. To use a power, the psychic must succeed at a saving throw, and his victim (if there is one) must fail a saving throw. The subject of a psychic power must be within the psychic’s field of vision. If, during the day, a psychic fails a saving throw to activate a power, that power closes to him for the remainder of the day and until he rest for 8 hours and spends one hour in meditation the next day. See Spellcasting for choice of powers and their descriptions.
Sixth Sense (1st): The most basic ability a psychic has is his “sixth sense”, which warns him of danger. Because of their sixth sense, psychics are only surprised on a roll of 1 on 1d8. Psychics receive a +1 bonus on saving throws made to avoid traps, and have a 4 in 6 chance of finding a secret door when searching as well as a 1 in 6 chance of noticing one just by passing by it.
