Default WTF Compartmentalized Mind mod

I was looking at a character sheet I made some time ago, and "Compartmentalized Mind (Extra Effort)" was on it.

I'm sure I saw that in one of the books, but can't find it!

Why is that there?

Sounds like you were meaning Costs FP, which has a -5 or -10% cost per FP.

I extremely doubt that. I have a vauge idea that it was correct, and out of an official e-book.

Yeah, I bet you were using the Super Effort enhancement on CM.

Yeah that's probably it. Creating instances of your mind.

How would the trick Worsel does to the Delagonians in the Lensman series work? (As an advantage) Putting a fake mind up in front to receive mind-reading and mind-control attempts while the REAL you is just fine?



BTW, there a new fanfic where Hermione did accidental magic and permanently altered herself to pull this. "Harry Potter and the Witch Queen" by TimeLoopedPowerGamer

How much did this cost you? That would help in tracking it down

I would say a combination of Mind Block to misdirect and CM he used to direct the thoughts at. Maybe an enhancement on CM as well but not sure that is needed.

Arguably low/no signature on defensive powers would make it inobvious that the defense had actually taken effect.

So far I didnīt find it, but somewhere, maybe in 3e, there was a canonical way to put up a fake mind against mind reading. Possibly a technique.
