Speaking to Beings

You feel a strange stirring in your mind, and even as you are about to speak to
the olive-skinned female human, you simultaneously, as if by instinct, somehow
transmit the words directly to her with your mind.

Help File

  Mindspeakers have the power to convey their thoughts directly into the minds
of others, without recourse to haphazard spoken language.  This entails the
use of a variety of telepathic faculties; see 'help basic telepathy' and 'help
advanced telepathy' for information.  In order to perform mindspeaking, you
must have a telepathic contact established as described in 'help advanced
  Your mindspeaking ability is determined by your intelligence, willpower,
ego, and telepathy skill.  In general, the same factors which affect the
difficulty of establishing telepathic contacts also affect the difficulty of
  The primary form mindspeaking takes is communication with an individual
across a telepathic contact.   To do this, first the relevant contact must be
your active contact as described in 'help basic telepathy'.  With an active
contact selected, concentrate on sending or transmitting your thoughts; this
opens a channel through which you may mindspeak.  The first thing you
subvocalize following the opening of a channel becomes a "key" which you then
use to designate messages which you wish to mindspeak through that channel.
For instance, if you subvocalize "send" after opening the mindspeaking channel,
then subvocalize "send hello", the person on the other side of the contact
will receive the message "hello".  To cease mindspeaking on your active
contact, concentrate on ceasing to send your thoughts.  Once you have begun
mindspeaking over a contact, you will continue to do so any time you use your
subvocalization key, even while that contact is no longer your active contact;
in this way you can maintain several open mindspeaking channels at once.
  You may also use a simple, short-ranged broadcast version of mindspeech.
This does not require the use of telepathic contacts, although it will be much
more reliable if contacts are present; only those nearby you will be able to
receive the message sent.  To do this, concentrate on sending or transmitting
the words you wish; for example, to project the message "hello everyone",
concentrate on sending the words hello everyone.
