Allows the caster to detect the surface thoughts of any creatures in range - except for the Soulless and creatures without minds (as we know them).
The ESP is stopped by two or more feet of rock, two or more inches of any metal other than lead, or a thin sheet of lead foil.
The occultist employing the spell is able to probe the surface thoughts of one creature per segment, getting simple instinctual thoughts from lower order creatures. Probes can continue on the same creature from segment to segment or can move on to other creatures. The caster can use the spell to help determine if a creature lurks behind a door, for example, but the ESP will not necessarily reveal what sort of creature it is.
If used as part of a program of interrogation, an intelligent and wary subject receives an initial POW check to resist. If successful, the creature reveals no additional information. If the POW check is failed, the caster may learn additional information, according to the Storyteller's ruling.
