with the metapsionic feat normally. Except for the reduced power point cost, all other
prerequisites for using the metapsionic feat and power together still apply (for example,

“One living creature […]}
Fix: delete ‘living’

I've always been kind of annoyed that practiced manifester references “powers per day,” which isn't a thing. It should say that you don't gain the increase to power points per day noted on your class table, but you do use the increased manifester level for determining bonus power points per day.
