Mental Link

Mind [Mind-Affecting]
Difficulty Class: 5
Channeling Time: 1 standard action
Range: 60 ft.
Target: One willing creature
Duration: Aura

You look into the mind of your target, seeking his senses. When you find them, you sense through one of your target’s senses.

You perceive what the subject creature perceives using its sight, hearing, taste, or smell. Only one sense is linked, and you cannot switch between senses.

You make any skill checks involving senses, such as Spot or Listen, as the subject, and only within the subject’s field of view. You lose your Dexterity bonus to AC while directly sensing what the subject senses.

Once this incantation is channeled, the link persists even if the subject moves out of the range of the original manifestation (but the link does not work across planes). You do not control the subject, nor can you communicate with it by means of this power.

The strength of the subject’s linked sense could be enhanced by other powers or items, allowing you the same enhanced sense. You are subject to any gaze attack affecting the subject creature (if you linked vision). If you are blinded or deafened, or suffer some other sensory deprivation, the linked creature functions as an independent sensory organ, and provides you the benefit of the linked sense from its perspective while this power’s duration lasts.

Enhance: You can enhance this incantation in one or more of the following ways.

For every 4 points by which you increase the DC, you can link to an additional sense of the subject.

If you increase the DC by 2, the target may perceive one of your senses instead of the other way around.

If you increase the DC by 2, the target needn’t be willing. The target may make a Will saving throw to negate this incantation. If you increase the DC by 4, the link persists across planar boundaries.
