Prerequisites: Sense presence, 8th-level genius.
On the round immediately after you successfully detect thinking creatures in your surroundings using sense presence, you may, as a move action, probe the thoughts of any one of those creatures. This must be a creature you can perceive with another sense (such as sight, hearing, touch, tremor sense, etc.). The creature you select receives a Will save (DC = 10 + 1/2 your genius level + your Intelligence modifier); if it fails, you detect its surface thoughts. Creatures of animal intelligence (Int 1 or 2) have simple, instinctual thoughts. If a creature succeeds on its save against this ability, you cannot attempt to detect its thoughts again this concentration.
