Effects

An amulet of ESP grants extrinsic telepathy when worn, which will show all monsters with minds within a 10x10 grid, and all such monsters on the level when blind.

If you polymorph into a metallivore and eat the amulet, it will instead grant intrinsic telepathy. This takes effect only when you are blind, and shows all monsters with minds on the whole level.

ESP is an abbreviation for Extra-Sensory Perception; that is, perception not gained through the five traditionally-attested senses: hearing, feeling, sight, taste and smell.

Identification

This amulet can be identified easily with the far look command. If you notice a monster that you wouldn't ordinarily be able to see (e.g. on the other side of a wall), far look will tell you whether you are seeing it because of telepathy. If so, and you have no other source of extrinsic telepathy, it must be coming from the amulet.

Generation

With a chance of an amulet of ESP being generated at 17.5%, this is the most commonly generated amulet, and one of the best: telepathy while non-blind provides excellent early warning of approaching monsters.
