:: Pyrokineticist ::


Icon: ir_bfz
(PRESTIGE CLASS)
Pyrokineticists know that a little psionic power goes a long way - for those interested only in fire. They find both beauty and utility in the chaotic shape of flame, its spectrum of fuel-dependent colors, its warming heat, and its never-ending hunger. Those who take one or more levels in the pyrokineticist class are sometimes colloquially referred to as 'pyros'.

Pyrokineticists like fire. A lot. Any character with some psionic ability is a possible candidate for this prestige class. Psions (particularly kineticists) and wilders might consider it acceptable to give up power acquisition in other areas if they have a passion for flame. Psychic warriors also enjoy the pyro's powers. Soulknives often take levels in this class to gain access to the weapon afire ability for their mind blades. Any character with the Wild Talent feat may also find this class appealing.
