The GM said, "Fantasy game, TL4 or so, with gunpowder, psi, and some varient types of Elves and magery. 200 point characters." We said: "200? Are you sure?" He said: "Yes."

My spouse created Lindir, an elven mage. I created his human spouse, Sirona, the Swiss Army Psi from you know where . . . Among other things that we did, Sirona served as the coordinator for a gestalt (mostly composed of NPCs) which, using a lovely combination of Psi Vamp and Mental Blow, took out a Power 30 psychic entity (nasty thing, fed on pain and fear and would take people over to get its meal; it had taken over the Abbey we were staying at). By the end of it, we were operating with Power 30 Telepathy Power or so. <insert megalomanical laughtrack> Life on the moon? Gee! Let's check!!

The GM got rid of the psi NPCs shortly after that. Later, in a fluxing-mana region (something was eating the mana whenever someone cast a spell . . . ), we drove some resident manticores off a ways, and Sirona went Astral to go to where the manticores were holed up, and then started trying to hit them with Sleep. She got two of them, but the third ran away (I was making one roll for Astral every three game minutes, one for Telereceive, and another for Sleep about every five game minutes, and didn't want to make another roll for subtlety, even though I should have . . . .).

For some reason, psionics left that universe pretty quickly after that little excavation . . . (we'd found an ancient ruin with artifacts even). He decreed that a race that had racial psionics (lifted from Traveller, it turned out . . . ) had appeared a few hundred years ago (crashlanded in their starship . . . ), which was when the first native psionicists started appearing. We suggested that maybe the "Gargoyles" had been training the native psis so that they could do some kind of mass "tap" on them and launch their ship again. The GM got this big grin on his face and said, "Those bastards!" So a star took off from the pole and all the psis got tapped and drained of their abilities.
