Telepathic Switchboard

1st-level communication

Activation Time: 1 action
Range: 10 feet
Duration: Concentration, up to 1 hour

Select up to six willing targets within range. For the duration, you may open a channel of telepathic communication between yourself and any number of these targets provided they remain within 120 feet of you. You can exclude any target from the telepathic channel freely. You can speak directly into the minds of these creatures and they can do the same with you and each other, provided they are included in the telepathic channel.

You can use this power to link in any creature whose mind you can detect through Detect Minds or Locate Mind. You can add additional targets as a bonus action on your turn up to the maximum.

You can trigger this power through solid objects if you are familiar with the target and know it is beyond the barrier. Psychic Silence, 1 foot of stone, 1 inch of common metal, a thin sheet of lead, or 3 feet of wood blocks the power. The effect doesn't have to follow a straight line and can travel freely around corners or through openings.

If you coordinate with an ally you are linked to in this way, you can target creatures or object that they can see which you can not, provided no barriers which could block your attack are between you and the target and that the target is within range of your attack or power.
