Telepathic Communication [Psychic]

Prerequisite: Read Minds
Benefit: You can communicate telepathically with others. You must have a line of sight to each subject, unless you've communicated telepathically with that individual before and are thus familiar with his/her "mental signature". A Diplomacy check result is then used to determine the effective range, and the communication attempt succeeds if the subject is within that range:
Less than 5: Failure
5-9: 10 yards
10-14: 100 yards
15-19: 1 mile
20-24: 10 miles
25-29: 100 miles
30-39: Unlimited range (same plane)
40+: Unlimited range (any plane)

Multiple attempts are permitted, and given sufficient time, it is possible to "take 20" on this check. If successful, the communication link allows two-way verbal communication while both parties maintain concentration. Adding others to a multi-way conference requires a new check for all existing links when each new one is added, with a cumulative -5 penalty (no "take 20" here, as failure causes the existing link to be dropped). Pictorial information (mental diagrams and actual views through each other's eyes) can be exchanged if the check result was at least 10 points higher than required for verbal communication at that range. Against magical protections, this power is considered equivalent to a 5th level spell with a caster level equal to the psychic's overall character level. Using this power is a standard action that does not provoke an attack of opportunity.
