I like the idea. By the time a player has a complete set of teeth this would be a free action 18 point heal - that could really be the difference between life and death on Nightmare.

It being a FREE action makes it doubly nice.

I'm still skeptical about water walking given the history on this.

Why not Psionic Psychic Blast for some damage or to confuse the monster for one round? A classic Psionic Psychic ability.

I very much like the healing idea.

I also like the idea of Psionic Psychic Blast.

Are we not allowed to say "Psionic?"

Agreed on all counts. A "Psychic" Blast of our own would be cool and fun. I like the confusion idea, especially if took away a monster attack for a round.

The healing boost is a good idea as well. And Free Actions are always appreciated. :)

Overall, Jeff, I like the system. It seems relatively simple to implement and run, I think.

Not in love with it because it introduces more math inside the dungeon.

However, I would find a non-scaling higher-powered (and thus a higher tier) healing power appealing.
Have you looked it up in the TDb ?

On further review...

A party loaded with psychic blast (confuse) could effectively negate a monster or monsters ability to attack. Imagine a party of 10 with this ability. 10 rounds of no monster action? If you average 2.5 rounds to kill each monster, you could shut down an entire dungeon. Just give me the completion token now thank you very much...

Unless monsters have some chance to resist this.

Or the effect is random. Maybe damage, maybe confuse, maybe enrage (giving them extra damage). Some mix of helpful and not helpful effects.

Or more math in the coaching room. Also not fun.

Maybe there is more than one power per tier, with several healing entries. Then it becomes a player responsibility as it sounds like this is another honor system ability anyway.

Wouldn't the increasing healing option (4 + 2/tooth) kind of negate the later power of negating damage? Why negate 10 points of energy damage if I could take it and then heal 18 HP?

Unless I have 9 HP left...

But lowering the healing to match might be wise.

It does introduce more math, but that is something the player would track, and is based on the honor system anyhow. I think people that have the teeth might be able to handled it. Either that or put in a heal power per tier as a option with math already done.
