In Psionics, a tabletop roleplaying game inspired by Akira, Firestarter, and Scanners, you play an Esper, a troubled young person with enormous psychic powers.
The bad news is you have serious emotional problems.
The good news is that you have enormous psychic powers.
The other bad news is that, because of your powers, the shadowy conspiracies that rule the world want to indoctrinate you into being their loyal puppets.
The good news is that you still have enormous psychic powers.
The other other bad news is that these enormous psychic powers and being a fugitive from these conspiracies isn't going to help your serious emotional problems.
The good news? Still...enormous psychic powers.
Now you have real power, a tool for pushing back — and you're going to push back, aren't you? You're going to push back hard.
Psionics uses the DicePunk System, as seen in the ENnie Award nominated Phantasm (2010).
