You can tell what happens in well-known places, to friends or to people you hold a former body part of or an object dear to. You will get a brief vision, often very subjective. The power scans for strong psychic impressions; humdrum everyday events are harder to detect. Sometimes these visions randomly focus on an emotionally intense moment in the past or future. Range is not a factor.
To gain information this way you make an opposed check against the targets' Recon. You gain valuable information based on the outcome of this roll; if the outcome matches the target's Mind you gain clear and important insights into the target's activities. On a failed roll, you learn obvious details and trivia; if the negative Outcome matches your Mind you learn misleading information or the target notices your spying.
You make others not notice you unless they are looking for you specifically. You can Sneak in plain sight and not be noticed. Special senses will not help against this, but creatures who know of you and look for you specifically, as well as creatures with a Mind greater than your Recon or who have special resistances or immunity to mental powers, are not affected.
You can sense active minds are present in an area. Make a skill roll and multiply the result by 10; this is the range in meters. You can focus on only a certain area or search only for a certain kind of mind (by creature type or species). To detect the mind of someone who is deliberately hiding requires an opposed Recon roll.
