Level: Psion/Wilder 3, Society Mind 3, Worldthought Medic 3
Manifesting Time: 1 standard action
Target: One sleeping creature
Duration: Until the target wakes
Power Points: 5
You create a temporary dreamstate in the mind of a sleeping creature, sheltering it from outside influence while providing it with a pristine resting environment, ideal for recovering mental energies. For the duration of this power, the subject is immune to all mind-affecting effects and may make saving throws normally (it is not automatically considered “willing” as unconscious creatures usually are). After a guarded sleep of at least 8 hours, a subject’s mind is in top condition, and it gains special benefits based upon its particular abilities. If the target could manifest psionic powers, it gains one temporary power point for each manifester level it has (which it can access as if from a cognizance crystal). If the target could cast arcane spells spontaneously, it gains one additional spell slot of his highest level. If the target prepares arcane spells, it may prepare spells in half the usual amount of time.
These benefits fade when the target next sleeps. You cannot manifest guarded sleep on yourself unless you are capable of manifesting powers while unconscious (such as with the Subconscious PowerHC feat).
