Telepaths can read thoughts, empaths can read emotions. The only exceptions are when reading the minds of species with four lobed brains, most notably, the Ferengi.

The ability of a telepath or empath can be easily referenced using the following table:

Telepathic/Empathic Rating
0 No telepathic or empathic abilities
0+ Extrasensory Perception (ESP)
1 Same species, touch only
2 Same species, no contact required
3 Species with two lobed brain, touch only
4 Species with two lobed brain, no contact required
5 Any species (including non-readable entities), touch only
6 Any species (including non-readable entities), no contact required
NR Non-readable entity; most likely four-lobed brain. Still readable to T5/E5 and T6/E6.
  • When writing the reference, include a T before the number for a Telepath (T3) and an E for an Empath (E5).
  • Use NR for non-readable individuals. For instance, Ferengi would be listed as T0 NR because they possess no telepathic abilities (T0) and are non-readable (NR) due to their four-lobed brains.
NOTE: Prior to SD 239106.21, T0 and E0 was used widely to refer to characters without any telepathic or empathic abilities as well as to those with extrasensory perception. Character bios last modified before that date should be noted as either possessing no ability or possessing ESP depending upon context within the bio.
