Telepathic Whisper

Communication knack

Activation Time: 1 bonus action
Range: 120 feet
Duration: 1 minute

You can speak directly into the mind of one creature within range. The target hears the message and can mentally reply with a message of its own.

This form of communication uses surface thoughts and words. The contacted creature must share a language with you to communicate in this way. A creature without telepathic whisper can receive and respond to your telepathic messages but can't initiate or terminate a telepathic conversation.

You can use this power to communicate with any creature whose mind you can detect through Detect Minds or Locate Mind. This is considered speaking when determining the effects of other powers, such as Compelling Influence.

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.

You can end the telepathic contact at any time. The contact is broken as soon as you are no longer within range of the target, if you use this power to contact a different creature within range, or if you or the target are incapacitated.

Psychic Rapport. As you experience the minds of your allies through the use of this knack, you can establish a mental connection that extends to greater distances. Whenever you gain a level you may select one willing ally and spend 1 hour establishing a psychic rapport. This connection allows you to use an action at any time to open a mental link with the ally communicating through thoughts. It also grants the ally a similar ability to reach out to you. The range is 1 mile multiplied by your level, multiplied by your ability modifier.

You can maintain an open line of communication in this way with a number of allies equal to your ability modifier.

Once established, this connection is permanent until you sever it as an action or until it is severed by Negate Power. Psychic Silence can temporarily suppress this connection.

Whenever you gain a level you can choose to maintain any active psychic rapports, or you can establish new ones.

At Higher Levels: Your range increases to 250 feet when you reach 5th level, 500 feet at 11th level, and line-of-sight at 17th level.
