  As an empath, you have the ability to sense and influence the emotions of
others.  This manifests as several separate abilities.
  First, you can open your mind to emotions in the area around you, sensing
any hostile creatures before having to encounter them directly.  This is a
relatively simple ability; your level of facility with it is determined by
your perception, intelligence, and your skill at metasenses and telepathy.
To do this, concentrate on sensing hostility.
  Second, you can attempt to calm those in a berserk rage.  How difficult this
is depends on how intense the rage and the level of psychic similarity and
familiarity you have with the subject.  Your performance here is determined by
your ego, intelligence, willpower, and skill in the disciplines of psionic
redaction and telepathy.  To attempt this, think about calming the berserker
rage in your subject.
  Third, a somewhat more difficult feat is the projection of a psychic field,
or glamour, which exerts an influence toward friendship on those near you,
making you seem more appealing and charismatic.  Your ability level at this is
determined by your willpower, perception, and skill at redaction and telepathy.
To project a friendship glamour, imagine people liking you.  Keeping the field
of influence in operation will tax your psychic energies; to bring the field
down, visualize your ordinary self.
  As an empath, you have rudimentary telepathic capabilities; please see
'help basic telepathy' for more information.
