Here is the excerpt:
The material presented in Unearthed Arcana will range from mechanics that we expect one day to publish in a supplement to house rules from our home campaigns that we want to share, from core system options to setting-specific material.
This month, Unearthed Arcana returns to the mystic character class and the rules for psionics. Based on the playtest feedback you sent us, there are a number of changes you can expect:
- The class now goes to 10th level. The core concepts had enough support that we feel confident moving forward with them.
- Psionics is more flexible. You have a psychic focus, which allows you to pick one discipline and gain a constant, special benefit from it. Otherwise, you can expend points to use any discipline you know.
- Psionics now includes psionic talents, the equivalent of a spellcaster’s cantrips.
- Psionic disciplines are now available to all mystics, regardless of mystic order. However, your order grants you a benefit for using its associated disciplines.
You can expect a survey asking for feedback on these draft rules in a month or so. At this point, we’re not necessarily tied to any of these options. This effort is merely a first draft to gauge where we should start and what kind of approach to psionics in fifth edition will work best. Read on and enjoy.
