Default Question about Illusion (mental)

I'm working on preparing a a game involving psionic powers and I wanted to get a clearer idea about Sensory Control power using Illusion with the mental modifier.

Can the psion involved do subtle edits, for example, hijack the senses of one or two guards, and edit their perception to be only their normal environment, except without the psion and his friends. Essentially this grants a sort of mass invisibility / silence.

Am I understand the ability correctly in them being able to do that?

Yes, mental illusion is largely just like illusions, but slightly more powerful (and can do damage).

So in order to 'remove' yourself your going to need a roll on illusions art to 'repaint' there view of the world to not include you..

You'll likely be at a penalty for how fast/loud your party is, but no penalties for light levels, or anything else.

Of course if you are willing to be a bit more 'brutal' with your edits it should just be a simple roll: IE you want to remove there ability to precieve change along an entire coridor that your party is going to walk down (but anyone else could walk down that coridor too, and they might notice that nothing in the coridor is changing, but they definatly won't see th party).

Subtle edits can also be great- like just lowering there effective light level and hering to give the party a significant bonus on stealth rolls.

Note that Sensory Control (and Mental Illusions in general) does not allow you to affect two people with one use. You'd have to use the power on one and then the other.
