Psionics Scrambler Device

Designer: Lorath Occhesta House


In the year YE 29 the Mishhu paid a visit to the Lorath home world of Lor. During this visit, they brought a single one of their Type 1 Mishhuvurthyar, Whom during this visit caused a multitude of headaches whenever it rudely went about speaking. This signified the potential capacity of the Mishhuvurthyar’s psionic capabilities, this caused the Lorath Occhesta House to go about the development of a device which would prevent psionic assaults from being carried out within the area this device protects.

Technical Information

The PSD functions by emitting a steady field of Delta and Alpha wave pattern scrambling emissions. When activated, the system is automatically in standby mode. The device’s scrambling emissions are triggered when psionic energies are detected that exceed a specific threshold of psionic power (Meaning the Mishhu speech would most likely trigger it).

The PSD can also be tied into shield emitters, thus allowing for a projection of Delta and Alpha wave scrambling emissions to be included in the shield’s field. The PSD can also be configured to ignore certain brainwave patterns, they are often set to ignore Lorath brainwave patterns to prevent accidental activation of the device.

The scrambling field emitted by the PSD has been specifically tuned not to interfere with Lorath brainwaves and telepathic communication over short distances, however, if the psionic emission is projected longer than five meters, it will quickly lose coherence and be masked by the scrambling field. The PSD may be able to be tuned to be compatible with other individual’s brain waves and telepathic communications, but this would be done on a case by case basis.

Effects of the scrambling field on non-Lorath brainwaves are mostly unknown. During tests of the device on other life forms from the Lorath home world, it has been found that the device may cause sleep disturbances, depression, anxiety, involuntary muscle spasms, and loss of balance.
