Yes there is. You just need to dig a little to find it.

Sorta thought out and seems slightly reasonable. But I don't mind I'd it doesn't make in into TSoG. Just an idea to put out there:

Redirect- The user maintains a long distance shield that converts damage that would be done into a Psi point cost at a certain rate.
Type:Shield
User:Set
Using range:1
Redirection range: within 4 spaces of user
Initial cost:5
Damage conversion rate: 2:1, damage:cost (rounded up when necessary)

What do you think? The turn that the one Set used it on goes put of range, the redirection is severed. And Set would only be able to support one at a time and only learn this at maybe 20 psi power and 25 psi defense. Thoughts?

Alright. Set uses it on an ally, say Griffin. It costs him 5 Psi points initially to use it. And then say Griffin starts fighting a swordsman. But instead of Griffin taking damage, Set is slowly drained of Psi points based on how much damage the Swordsman attempts to do to Griffin at the rate of 6 damage costs 3 Psi points to redirect. But then, say Griffin goes outside of Set's range of 4 spaces. With Griffin outside his range, he can't redirect the damage Griffin would take, so the connection is severed and Set must use Redirect on Griffin again to resume protecting him from a distance. Does that make sense?

But as I said, I don't mind if it doesn't make it into TSoG. I jut thought I'd put it out there for the current or a future game.

-Edit-
If not for Set, maybe an enemy healer in a boss battle could use this? Oh wait. Never mind. Then the boss would be invincible unless you take down the healer. Wait. That might accually be kinda cool! Kinda like a telepathic shield generator from a Star Wars movie.

Why is it necessary? How does it work? Can you create a formula for these moves? What would the Psi cost be? What is their purpose? Did you really think them out all the way? And what do you think on Redirection?

Redirection would be kind of cool for a boss fight (maybe), but it seems a little bit too powerful for one of the Main's teammates to use.

Maybe if Set had a smaller range. Or maybe if the cost to absorb damage were higher. Hmm.

maybe 2 psy points for each point of damage, because by the time Set learns something as powerful as that, he probably has quite a lot of Psy points. I don't know it sounds pretty cheap otherwise.

How about this: You can heal about 10-13 damage for 3 Psi points when you first get Set. So when you look at it in context, the price to absorb damage is actually pretty steep.
