By manifesting this power, you place a psionic signature on a creature or an unattended object. You can automatically detect the presence of the signature whenever it is within 1,000 feet of you, and in such cases you know the direction and approximate distance to the target object or creature.
If the distance between you and the psychic beacon increases beyond 1,000 feet, you can determine the direction and approximate distance to the signature object or creature by concentrating (a move action).
Augment: You can augment this power in one or both of the following ways.
1. For every 2 additional power points you spend, this power’s save DC (if applicable) increases by 1.
2. If you spend 4 additional power points, you can designate a willing creature to detect the beacon. You must touch the creature as you manifest the power. For the duration of the power, that creature senses the location of the beacon instead of you.
