Psibernetic prosthesis use synthetic synapses and hardware to convert energy into raw magic and then to channel it through a number of pre-loaded chips to produce magical effects. There is no truth to the persistent rumours that this technology depends on harvesting nervous tissue from magic-capable androids.

Part One: The Psibernetic Processor (Brain)

  • Apprentice Processor: Level 2, Price 1000, Caster Level 2, Spell Slots 3, Maximum Spell Level 1.
  • Adept Processor: Level 5, Price 3000, Caster Level 5, Spell Slots 4, Maximum Spell Level 2.
  • Master Processor: Level 8, Price 10000, Caster Level 8, Spell Slots 5, Maximum Spell Level 3.

Part Two: The Psibernetic Converter (Spinal column)

  • Imp Converter: Level 2, Price 2000, Power Capacity 20.
  • Demon Converter: Level 5, Price 6000, Power Capacity 40.
  • Prince Converter: Level 8, Price 20000, Power Capacity 80.
