Well, that was fun

The Vulcans (and their Romulan cousins) are descended from a much more primitive and warlike culture. Unlike the Romulans, the Vulcans chose to focus on reason, self-discipline, and suppression of emotions.

The Vulcans are basically a pacifistic people who do not believe in the assertive use of overwhelming force to resolve disputes. Their cultural devotion to pure logic at the cost of greatly repressing their emotional identity is well known. A remarkable side effect of this logic-based rationality is the enormously high incidence of psionic ability found in Vulcans. It is interesting to note that, by way of comparison, Romulans are no more likely to show positive psionic potential than the average rate for the other species, which is about one in every 2.5 million healthy adults. While all Vulcans possess psionic potential, only about one in every 20,000 has the potential to become a true Psionic Master. Vulcans are limited to the psionic abilities found within the skill list, but all Vulcans are assumed to have latent psionics and may buy those skills with no restrictions during campaigns (subject to GM approval).
