Campaign Design - Spells: Detect Return

Detect Return (from the Book of the Righteous)

Level: The Dead 1
Components: V, S
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: 60 feet
Target, Effect, or Area: Quarter circle emanation from you to the extreme of the range
Duration: Concentration, up to 10 minutes per caster level (D)
Saving Throw: None
Spell Resistance: Yes

You can detect whether any living being in the area has ever been brought back from death by any means including raise dead, resurrection, miracle, wish, and so on. The amount of information revealed depends on how long you study a particular area or subject.
  • 1st Round: Presence or absence of those who have returned from death.

  • 2nd Round: Number of creatures in the area who have returned from death, and who among them has returned the most times; if more than one creature has returned the most times, it indicates the creature who has returned by the most powerful means.

  • 3rd Round: The number of times each returned creature has returned from the dead and by what means.
Each round, you can turn to detect things in a new area. The spell can penetrate barriers, but one foot of stone, one inch of common metal, a thin sheet of lead, or three feet of wood or dirt can block it.
