    this feat says:

    At your option, any one veil shaped by you and currently affecting you can also affect yourfamiliar, animal companion, or mount or similarentity.”

    I’m not sure what “at your option” means in terms of which veil to share. Can I change whoch veil I am sharing? If so, does it take an action?

    And i just realized that this also says that you companion creature needs to have the limb body feature to share a veil.

    Which seems like a case of “screw you psicrystals, Psionics doesn’t get nice things”

    Seriously, this feat is in so much need of errata.

    Shared Veil will be updated to read-

    Shared Veil
    You can share a veil with an ally with which you have a special bond.
    Prerequisite: Ability to shape veils and an animal companion, eidolon, familiar, mount, or creature whose services are granted as part of a known veil.
    Benefit: When shaping your veils, any one veil shaped by you can also affect your familiar, animal companion, mount, or any creature currently created or controlled by one of your shaped veils. You may change which veil is shared in this way, or which companion it is shared with, as a standard action. The creature in question must remain within 15 feet of you to receive the benefit and must have the appropriate limb or body part (a horse cannot benefit from a veil that occupies the Hands slot,for example). If the creature leaves this radius of effect, it loses the benefits of the veil until such time as it returns within 15 feet. If the veil has an activated ability (like Gorget of the Wyrm’s breath weapon attack) the companion instinctively knows how to use it and can be commanded to do so with a Handle Animal check as though it were a trained trick. Familiars do not require a check, and can be commanded to utilize their veil as a free action (though they must still spend the appropriate action to activate it). Your companion also shares the benefits of any essence you have invested in the veil.”

    As to it being a “screw you” to psicrystals… There are virtually no other feats that affect both familiars and psicrystals, and that’s because psicrystals and familiars are very different things. This just isn’t really a feat that can be properly tailored to psicrystals without taking up a lot more word count than it already does (which is, honestly, a lot). That doesn’t mean that there won’t be other akashic feats that are tailored to psicrystals, and in all likelihood those feats won’t be appropriate for familiars.
