If you were a DM running a magic-oriented game, what would be the role of psionics? Plainly I see how they are incorporated into Eberron, but what about other games, other settings? Where does the psion fit in? The easy answer is to point out naturally psionic monsters, like the yuan-ti and illithids. But where does it reach the PC-level? How does Joe Dwarf learn to cultivate the hoodoo in his grey matter? And what's the stigma built up around all this? Are they loners? Is there a society with psionics instead of magic holed up somewhere? Or do they pass themselves off as mages to the ignorant? I know much of this is my choice as a DM, but I'm wondering what you folks use, or would use, should psionics be part of your campaign.

On a different note:
I'm hungering for character action, but don't have the time or inclination to join a game right now. Thus I'm looking for a D&D PC game, but which 3rd ed (I know there's not many 3.5 rules games out) game would you recommend?
