A kineticist psion chooses energy type whenever she manifests a power that calls for active energy type, while any other psionic character chooses their active energy type when they gain psionic focus and then gets to use that for the relevant powers, if I recall correctly.

Either way, psionic characters have an easier time modifying their powers than spellcasters have modifying their spells. So many powers have innate augment options, as free pseudo-metapsionic options.

It's been 4.5 years. I stand by most of my design, and I've revised the rest.

I don't have time to explain psionics for newbies, but suffice it to say, if you're reading Pathfinder books, you can read Ultimate Psionics no problem.

I suggest you ignore the class fluff for the wilder, psychic warrior and soulknife, and just run it as shonen determination powers. The names of powers are the names assigned by librarians, salespeople and the like, but as a psionic PC you can call a power whatever the heck you want. You're the one making adjustments to reality.
