You can read emotions, but not thoughts. Otherwise, this ability is identical to Telepathy, except that it only requires one racial trait slot.
You are a touch-telepath, which means that to use any of your abilities, you must make conscious physical contact. You can use your natural psychic ability to merge minds with a willing participant, or potentially psychically assault an unwilling one with an opposed Will check. You also know certain neuropressure points that allow you to subdue an unaware opponent with a successful Will check.
You are telepathic. Unlike most racial traits, this ability requires two racial trait slots. Reading complex or difficult emotions and thoughts (such as deception) may require a Will check. If a character is aware of your ability and wishes to conceal his or her emotions, you make opposed Will checks. You may share your emotions and/or thoughts with others, but an unwilling assault of emotions and/or thoughts requires opposed Will saves. Telepathy is limited to visual contact to read the thoughts and emotions of specific characters, but you can read the general emotions of a localized group or area, such as a ship, city, or planet.
