Jump to: navigation, search
Dowse Location
4th-level divination
Casting time: 1 action
Range: Touch
Components: V, S, M (an oblong piece of metal worth at least 1 gp)
Duration: 24 hours

When you cast this spell, the material component becomes drawn to location from which you cast this spell. For the duration, the material will be very gently drawn to this location regardless of the distance. The pulling force just enough that a creature who holds it can faintly feel the tug. If set on natural ground, the pull will not be enough for the material to roll through dirt, sand, or clumps of grass even if the material is perfectly round.

The location initially designated by this spell assumes a sphere of physical matter 5 feet across. Thus it can track mobile objects that are beyond this diameter, such as wagons, ships, or islands floating in the sky. It cannot however track open air or shifting water. If the location is irrevocably destroyed or pulled apart, this spell ends. Detect magic or similar effects can discern that the targeted location is affected by this spell. This spell can be dispelled either be targeting the target location or the material.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 6th level or higher, you can choose for the duration to become "until dispelled." This effectively creates a dowsing stone for the location you designated.
