Capabilities

Users possess extrasensory perception: essentially a sixth sense that allows them to acquire information by means independent of any of their known senses or previous experience. This applies to any and all kinds of information, knowledge, wisdom, experience, etc. Information can be either personal (memories, thoughts, etc.) or impersonal (academic knowledge, data, etc.). This ability can be used passively (as an instinctual reaction) or actively (by wanting to know specific information).

The most common applications of extrasensory perception include perceiving and detecting the presence of ghosts, spirits and other otherworldly beings, reading the memories or thoughts of people and objects, seeing into the future, or any other forms of gathering elusive information about the surroundings through unnatural means.
