Metamanipulation Edit

I posted the current version of the feature, but one thing I've been considering and haven't managed to get feedback on is changing it to not give any feats but allow you to use the metapsionic version of any metamagic feats (or vice versa) you do have. You'd only be able to use the opposite version of metamagic feats that increase the spell level by 1 at 3rd level, and then +3 and +5 at 6th and 9th. Some metric for determining the appropriate power point increase per spell level would have to be developed, and applied to figure out the limits on the metapsionics that may be used as metamagic, and how many spell levels that would increase things.

The problem is that it's not consistent, and not every metamagic feat has a psionic equivalent. Thoughts?

I have a (so far consistant) means of figuring that out. For example Quicken (+4), is worth 4 spell levels. In psionic terms, that's 2 additional PP. It's -1 level for needing a psionic focus (so +3). That's 6 PP, which is the cost for Quicken Power. But yes, not everything is transferable. Psionics for example is auto-heightened and auto-still/auto-silent. And so forth. -- Eiji Hyrule 21:29, September 21, 2009 (UTC)
So (2 * ( Spell_Level_Increase - 1 ) )? Convoluted, but it makes sense. Doesn't work for +1 spell level, but I can just say (minimum +1 PP). OK.
So now the question is, would that be a better balanced idea than what's currently there?
Hmm... I wonder if a feat to increase the cost of a metapsionic feat by 2 but prevent it from expending Psionic Focus would be balanced...
