Void Dreamers additionally concern themselves with navigation of the Webway and - to a lesser extent - the Warp, something many of their brethren consider behavior on the far side of suicidal. The nature of Corsairs' existence in exile also makes their tutelage far more varied than that of other Eldar psykers: while some may study at the foot of an experienced master, many are forced to make due with training via recordings and constant practice. To become a Void Dreamer, an Eldar character must either find a mentor willing to train them or knowledge crystals with the information needed to teach themselves.

Void Dreamer Discipline

Telepathic Link

Value: Free
Prerequisite: None
Action: Half Action
Focus Power: Difficult (-10) Opposed Willpower
Range: 20m × PR
Sustained: No
Subtype: Concentration
Effect: The psyker selects one of the two effects to manifest on a target within range and line of sight.

  • Thought Reading: The psyker reads the target’s thoughts, with the GM determining the nature of the information gained. The more degrees of success scored on the Focus Power test, the more information is gained overall. The higher the PR of the power, the more secretive the information gained.
  • Thought Sending: The psyker causes a message to appear in the target’s mind as if he has just heard it spoken aloud. The message can be no longer than 5 x PR seconds long. If the target of this power is aware of what the psyker is trying to do, he can voluntarily fail the opposed Willpower test, counting as having rolled a 100.

Communion
