Might have already been answered, but is there a way to suppress a psion's powers, ie: suppression cuffs, etc? I know I can just HAVE them be created in my world, but was wondering if someone had already made them for SWN? Thanks!

If I was to have such things, is have some that simply increase the effort required, and more advanced one that block whole areas.

The rulebook says that some rare pretech can do it. Some very advanced world might have special prison for Psionics that cancel their abilities, and some very important places and persons might have such protections, but I'd keep it very minimal.

I might base psychic suppression on Empyrean Wards or the Cold Breath ability from Godbound. Basically, the psychic would have to commit effort equal to the level of the ward in order to actually do what they want. Powerful psychics might have enough effort to overcome the ward, but weaker psychics would be effectively suppressed.

A ward might also cause damage to the psion, or halve/diminish the effect of a power, or allow an extra save, etc.

The Neutron Diamond in either Relics of the Lost or Engines of Babylon, can't remember.

Large doses of morphine or thorazine

A really sturdy blindfold will also do the trick for many powers.

Sedation. Hard to focus your miɡhty metapsychic will if you're unconscious.
