If i wanted to make a Psionic item that once per day allowed me to manifest Fate Link (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/psionic/powers/fateLink.htm) at an 7th Manifester Level, which means normally it could be augmented once, Would it manifest from the item with this augmentation? and What about other powers that have more than one augmentation option?
The rules are obnoxiously vague:
It’s great to know that they’re usually minimum manifester level, but there’s zero information about what happens in the unusual cases where it’s not. Individual items must therefore specify, apparently.
Power stones actually do explicitly state that they can be augmented:
While power trigger items (dorjes, mostly, since psicrowns have special rules, including their own power points that can be used to augment) have the truly bizarre rule that they are augmented if they deal HP damage.
In my opinion, it’s insane to not give users the benefit of the manifester level they’ve paid for by not having the item be augmented.
