Empathic sense

Prerequisite: Sense motive 8 ranks
Benefit You have sufficiently honed your emotional intelligence that you can communicate without a common language. When in the immediate presence of a person speaking a language you don't understand, you can understand some of their message if you succeed on a sense motive check. The DC is 15 for interpreting simple messages, or 20 for interpreting complex messages, especially those that rely on getting across new information. Failure by 4 or less means you can’t get the message across. Communication in this way with a nonhumanoid is difficult because it’s harder to read a strange creature’s body language; you take a -4 penalty on your sense motive check. Against a creature of animal Intelligence (1 or 2) it’s even harder; you take a -8 penalty. Against a nonintelligent creature, it’s impossible. Failure by 5 or more means that some false information has been implied or inferred.
