Review of chapter "Power Training" from Forgotten
Review:
......Read the "Psionics manual" before attempting something like this again.
And put it in the right place, this category is for the movie not the books/game.

Review of chapter "Power Training" from Hawkehunt
Review:
True, drinking holy water dusts vamps, but contact only causes burns. 2hp would burn them, possibly enough to drive them away if they were new, but Dru would only get turned on by it.
Comments from author:
Yes, But I was saying like holy water, not that it was holy water. The specific power used normally would generate a lot less, but Xander augmented it.

Review of chapter "Power Training" from djhardim
Review:
Not bad. Pay attention to your verb tense though:

Ex
Auris pulls out a book and lays it on a spectral lectern.

Corrected:
Auris pulled out a book and laid it on a spectral lectern.

This story appears to take place in Season 1. If true, then you need to substitute another vampire for Dru. She didn't show up until season 2.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Ahdamnit
Review:
Kalashtar. Not bad but hopefully your future updates will be be longer.
Comments from author:
No, but very close it was synad. While they normally create kalashtar; that only represents twinning spirits. Synads are three or more; stats include +2 Will (Yes Dru is screwed), immunity to human-only affecting spells and effects (Dru is now well and truly dead.) +3 power points (Snyder, Larry and Cordy better leave town.) Precognitive edge, +2 Knowledge and Psicraft checks, (go to the Head of the class). Multitask (Read two books at once.)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Mnemorath
Review:
Hmm, Let me check my Eberron Campaign Setting book. No fancy web searches for me. Though djhardim is right. It is indeed a Kalashtar. Hmm, lets see what Xander gets:
+2 against mind affecting spells and abilities (Dru is screwed)
+2 on bluff, diplomacy, and intimidate checks. (Who's in more trouble, Larry or Cordy?)
Naturally Psionic
Psi-like abilities: Mindlink (1/day)

Then there is the physical changes. Basically Xander is gonna look ALOT better to the female population, (and Larry), then before.

Lawful Good is the sticking point. Though Eberron does not make alignments mandatory (Dragons are not necessarily color-coded for your convenience), I am not sure Xander fits that alignment, more of a NG or CG then LG.

IN any case, good start, I look forward to seeing more.
Comments from author:
Thanks for ideas, he's not acually kalashtar. Only semantics but he's a synad. No longer human abberration with at least 3 spirtis in his head. It is in the Complete Psionic; yes he is going to be so close to human that he's going to be within spitting distance.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from djhardim
Review:
Looks interesting. A web search lead to Dungeons and Dragons.

From Wikipedia: kalashtar — humans bound with a spiritual psychic connection to a quori, a creature originally from Dal Quor, the Region of Dreams. This bonding first happened thousands of years ago and resulted in a new and distinct race with minor physical differences from humans and significant mental ones; Kalashtar have psionic abilities and some degree of shared memory due to the common spirit they share with their ancestors.
Comments from author:
Very close; quori usually create kalashtar, however taking into account his multi-possessions has had me to declare him a synad. I know semantics, but hey it fit better
