Mind Blast (Su)

Psycheflayers are able to project a 60 foot of psychic static towards a single target. The target is stunned for 1d6 rounds and takes 8d6 points of non-elemental damage. A successful Will save (DC 22) reduces the damage by half and negates the status effect. This ability is used as a standard action is considered a mind-affecting effect and the saving throw DC is Charisma based. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 5th level spell (Knowledge: Planes DC 25).

Mind Purge (Su)

Psycheflayers are able to enter the mind of their target and purge one of their benefits from their victim. This spell functions as Dispel. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 3rd level spell (Knowledge: Planes DC 21).

Thought Tentacle (Ex)

If a psycheflayer has someone grappled and successfully deals damage to that target, instead of the normal physical damage, it can choose to deal 1d4+2 points of Intelligence damage instead. This ability only works on creatures with an actual brain. Thus, it does not work on constructs, elementals, plants, oozes or undead in addition to creatures that either do not have an actual brain or the brain is not physically inside the grappled creature.

Time Slip (Su)

1/day, a psycheflayer summons a clock rotating and engulfing his target into a deep slumber. The victim must make a Fortitude save (DC 22) or takes 5d4 years in a blink of an eye. They must also make a Will save (DC 22) or is inflicted with the Sleep status effect. This is a mind-affecting spell. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 7th level spell (Knowledge: Planes DC 29).
