Player’s Handbook 2 introduced the Primal power source, so just to keep with the theme of one new power source per book the Player’s Handbook 3 introduces Psionics. Psionics have a legion of fans out there so a lot of people have been clamoring for this book. I’ve actually found Psionics pretty annoying in the past, but this time around I actually like it. They feel more Jedi-like and less like an overpowered version of the normal magic system. Beyond Psionics, this book also introduces Skill powers and Hybrid Classes. Where the Player’s Handbook 2 pretty much fleshed out all of the original classes from 3rd Edition’s PHB, this book finally gives us the Monk while also giving us some of the most revolutionary material we’ll probably get all year.

This is a sequel to the class expanding Martial Power. Wizards of the Coast has managed to make their previous books not just rehashes of the same formulas to try to make another sale. These books are about evolving Dungeons and Dragons better and faster than in 3rd Edition’s entire lifespan. As to be expected, this isn’t just a clone of Martial Power with some switched around bells and whistles.
