DCC Shiz: Psionic Powers (raw list)

I wanted the powers to be similar to spells, in that the manifester rolls on a table to determine the effects of the attempted power. This should also help to speed up game play, since it's so similar to the magic system.

To Manifest a power the Psion (manifester) would make a Power Check. 1d20+Intelligence Modifier+Psion Level. They would then consult the table for the power they are attempting to manifest.

Here is the list of powers I came up with. I tried to keep them original, but ended up borrowing from a lot of different sources. This list will change as I continue to develop more powers.
Note this is just a raw list. Tables for each power will be forthcoming
