Also, Psicrystal Affinity will most likely be the most flexible and powerful feat you'll ever take, depending on your build.

I dare anyone to find a hole in that logic.

Never thought I'd see Lycanthromancer suggest Metamind, but it does get a lot better around level 25 (later if you don't start by 16).

Can Font of Power be used for the PP reserve for Soul Crystal?  I can see arguments either way.

If you are going Slayer, it may go without saying, but I'll say it anyway...  Finish before 20 to maximize your BAB.  Psion 6/Anarchic Initiate 4 is a good lead-in.

There are only two times when metamind is usable: once you hit epic, and if you can start with all 10 levels and Font of Power.

+1 Lycanthromancer, infinite PP and recharge mechanics aren't a huge power boost at this level -- it's hard to run out of spell slots usually.  But, it will be freeing, letting you cut loose no matter what, and Psionics is quite good for abusing action economy. 

I think at epic level Astral Constructs, like all non-Gate-based summoning, end up being useless. 

Which book is Lycanthromancer in?
That would be me, actually. Check the handle on my posts.
Might think of taking that question as a siggy-piece though, Lycanthromancer.

It's too bad nobody else responded with 'The Book of Awesome' or something. Then I just might have.

If it's damage on a psion you want, let me find my Battle Toad Hood.  Non-stop power, never runs out of steam, never eats, sleeps, drinks, or breathes, built in recharge, and capable of all the same curb stomping a normal Hood is, while also being effectively a full manifester.

That's actually pretty easy with metamind or recharge shenanigans and Metamorphosis.

They never released anything to support Epic Constructs?
Oh jeez, I have absolutely no idea.  Did they ever produce any support for epic-level Summon Monster?  Outside of Gate, that is.

3.0 web stuff on Mind's Eye included:

... completely unadapted. Can be though.

Do you have a link?  I have no idea when that will ever come up for me, but it'd be nice to have around just in case.  Besides, I've been looking to rework some summoning rules in general.
