Mind magic is the ability to read thoughts and project your own thoughts to others. (If this were a sci-fi game, we’d call it telepathy.)
Mind magic at lower levels allows the user to read some surface thoughts and send their own thoughts to someone relatively nearby. At higher levels, mind magic can allow the user to break into another person’s mind to read and control their thoughts, or project their own thoughts to someone a great distance away. In certain cases, the mage can only use this power on animals.
