After making contact with the Proteans mankind had irrevocable prove that the mind could have an effect on the reality around us. We termed this power Psionics and they taught man-kind how to utilize the knowledge. While it is most common (and respected) to be taught by a Protean Archon, it is possible for humans to teach each other as well.
In Japan, psions are legally required to be registered with the government and take courses in “Responsible Usage” of their techniques. Unfortunately, the government lacks and way to detect someone with psionic talent short of witnessing it first hand, so many psyches go unregistered.
To be a Psionic one must first take an aspect that represents it. They then choose the Psionics Skill. A psionic aspect also allows you to take take stunts for other skills and flavor them as psionics.
Any use of the Psionics skill or a psionic stunt you take a mental stress. On a failure, you may turn it to a success by taking stress and/or consequences totaling the margin of failure. Consequences from this are mental in nature, and can only begin recovery through meditation.
