Has anyone out there come up with an "Empathy" Power? Maybe one where you can both detect and transmit emotions from/to another being/animal, etc.???

I'm actually surprised there isn't an emotions-only Power already!

Use the Boost/Lower Trait power and apply it to the NPC reaction table

Seems like it could be trappings of B/L Trait, Puppet, of Beast Friend.

There's also a power called empathy in the Sci-Fi GM's Toolkit. It lets you boost your Charisma by reading others' emotional states and responding to what they want to hear, or by manipulating their emotions in subtle ways.

Could also be a trapping in the form of Detect/Conceal Emotions, or ... Speak Language > Read Emotions?

Fantasy World Builder Toolkit also has a power called Anger/Peace that can make the target more/less hostile.
