Clairvoyants see the dead, able to view into the ethereal when others might only get a chill when a ghost passes through them. Like moths to a flame, ghosts are attracted to clairvoyants, who have a beacon-like presence in the Border Ethereal. Clairvoyants tend to be quite jittery as a result, sensitive to what might stalk the living at the edges of their vision.

Psionic Sorcery

When you choose this origin at 1st level, when you cast any of the spells gained from your Psionic Spells feature, you can cast it by expending a spell slot as normal or by spending a number of sorcery points equal to the spell’s level. If you cast the spell using sorcery points, it requires no components.

Psionic Spells

Starting at 1st level, your clairvoyant nature changes your mind in subtle but profound ways. You learn additional spells when you reach certain levels in this class, as shown on the table below. The spell counts as a sorcerer spell for you, but it doesn’t count against the number of sorcerer spells you know.

Sorcerer Level Spells
1st comprehend languages, identify
3rd locate animals or plants, locate object
5th clairvoyance, sending
7th arcane eye, locate creature
9th legend lore, scrying

Psionic Reading

Starting at 6th level, you can focus your mind to read the psionic imprint left on an object. If you hold an object and concentrate on it for 10 minutes (as if concentrating on a spell), you learn a few basic facts about it. You gain a mental image from the object’s point of view, showing the last creature to hold the object within the past 24 hours. You also learn of any events that have occurred within 20 feet of the object within the past hour. The events you perceive unfold from the object’s perspective. You see and hear such events as if you were there, but can’t use other senses. Additionally, you can embed an intangible psionic sensor within the object. For the next 24 hours, you can use an action to learn the object’s location relative to you (its distance and direction) and to look at the object’s surroundings from its point of view as if you were there. This perception lasts until the start of your next turn. Once you use this feature, you can’t use it again until you finish a short or long rest.

Psychic Defenses

At 6th level, you gain resistance to psychic damage, and you have advantage on saving throws against being charmed.

The Third Eye

Starting at 14th level, you can use your action to increase your powers of perception. When you do so, choose one of the following benefits, which lasts until you are incapacitated or you take a short or long rest. You can’t use the feature again until you finish a short or long rest.

  • Darkvision. You gain darkvision out to a range of 60 feet.
  • Ethereal Sight. You can see into the Ethereal Plane within 60 feet of you.
  • Greater Comprehension. You can read any language.
  • See Invisibility. You can see invisible creatures and objects within 10 feet of you that are within line of sight.

Area Reading

Starting at 18th level, you can call up visions of the past that relate to an object you hold or your immediate surroundings. You spend at least 1 minute in meditation and prayer, then receive dreamlike, shadowy glimpses of recent events. As you meditate, you see visions of recent events in your immediate vicinity (a room, street, tunnel, clearing, or the like, up to a 50-foot cube), going back a number of days equal to your Charisma score. For each minute you meditate, you learn about one significant event, beginning with the most recent. You can meditate in this way for a number of minutes equal to your Charisma score and must maintain concentration during that time, as if you were casting a spell. Once you use this feature, you can’t use it again until you finish a short or long rest.
