Sometimes it’s better to allow another a glimpse into your mind than to block him completely. A closed mind causes more suspicion than an open mind that reveals only what you choose.

Mechanics: With a single success on the casting roll, the mage may add a layer of conscious thought over her own. This layer contains information chosen by the mage during the casting. Repeated attempts to read a mind protected by this layer of false thoughts may reveal the shallowness of thinking. Suspicious mages may roll (Composure + Empathy) minus the Potency of the "Phantom Thoughts" casting, to confirm the mind they are attempting to read has been altered.
