A commonly found planar entity, the mentat is simply a servant to one of the godminds, and the different mentats serve different godminds, although each variety of mentat typically venerates a particular godmind. The mentats’ alignment typically reflect that of their specific godmind and their behavior follows the tenets of their godmind’s philosophy.
The mentat is a type of outsider that takes on the aspect of a single godmind. Many varieties of mentats exist, several are presented below.
Psionics (Su): Many mentats have manifesting ability. If a mentat has access to one or more psionic nodes, they have the ability to choose their powers known from those nodes and also gain the granted powers of the nodes.
Tongues (Su): All mentats can speak with any creature that has a language, as though using the tongues, psionic power. This ability is always active.
Summon Mentat (Sp): Once per day, a mentat can attempt to summon another mentat of the same variety with a 25% chance of success. Roll d%: On a failure, no creature answers the summons that day. A mentat that has just been summoned cannot use its own summon ability for 1 hour. This ability is the equivalent of a 2nd-level power.
