Detect Minds

1st-level sensory

Activation Time: 1 action
Range: Self (30-foot radius)
Duration: Concentration, up to 10 minutes

For the duration, you know if there are living, thinking creatures within 30 feet of you, as well as where the creature is located. These creatures can not hide from you, gain no benefit from obscurement, and cover effects line of effect, but not line of sight.

You can determine the creature type, but not the subtype or the specific creature. You can spend an action while this power is in effect to ignore invisibility for a single such target for the duration. You may ignore invisibility for an additional target by spending an additional action so long as the power is in effect.

You can sense the precise location of creatures using psychic powers even if those creatures are otherwise invisible or obscured.

You cannot sense targets concealed by the Psychic Silence power activated at the same power level or higher.

The power can penetrate most barriers, but it is blocked by Psychic Silence, 1 foot of stone, 1 inch of common metal, a thin sheet of lead, or 3 feet of wood or dirt. This also grants you line-of-effect against creatures you sense in regard to other psychic powers.

At Higher Levels: When you activate this power using a power slot above 1st, you can achieve additional effects:

  • 2nd level: You know the relative Intelligence of all minds that you detect, whether higher or lower than yours.
  • 3rd level: You know if there are living, thinking creatures within 60 feet of you. You can also sense undead with Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma scores of 8 or higher (all three abilities must be 8 or higher).
  • 4th level: You know the Intelligence category of all minds that you detect: animal (1-3), low (4-7), average (8-13), high (14-17), remarkable (18-20), and whether they have Great-Intelligence or Super-Intelligence.
  • 5th level: You know if there are detectable creatures within 120 feet of you. Aberrations and undead are noticeably distinct.
  • 6th level: You know the Intelligence score of all targets. You also know the relative Charisma and Wisdom of all minds that you detect, whether higher or lower than your own.
  • 7th level: You know if there are detectable creatures within 240 feet of you. You can automatically determine the group's leader if present.
  • 8th level: You know the Wisdom category of all minds that you detect: dim (1-3), low (4-7), average (8-13), high (14-17), remarkable (18-20), and whether they have Great-Charisma, Super-Charisma, Great-Wisdom, or Super-Wisdom.
  • 9th level: You know if there are detectable creatures within 500 feet of you. You also know their Wisdom and Charisma scores, and you know the name of each creature who fails a Wisdom saving throw.
