I'd like some help re-flavoring the erudite variant as sorcerous and for a mantle using psion varriant. These are to be called the savant and mystic repesctively. Yes, this is me asking for help and not just posting my own fluff yet.

Refluffing psionics as sorcery thread from the old boards. It had new names for all the classes and powers and stuff.

Thank you for linking to one of my old posts but that's not quite what I was looking for. I was thinking more along the lines of help with the flavor text, than renaming anything.

What did you have in mind? Mantles are sort of ideals and concepts (the psionic equivalent of domains, sort of), right? And what do you mean by "sorcerous"?

For one, the mystic psion/sorcerer variant is sort of a non-martial version of the ardent. In other words the psion/sorcerer but with mantles instead of the standard power/spell list. I'll explain later.

Basic ideas for the flavor of the mystic and savant.

Mystics
-Use innate sorcerous power to channel and invoke the might of natural forces, god-like beings and cosmic entities.
-Draws power/spell list from mantles, just like an ardent.

Savants
-Combines innate mystical power with occult or hermetic knowledge gleaned from study and apprenticeship. Savants learn about the universe's working to better manipulate it with their own magical energy.
