Scrying locations, not just people

Post  Moonchild on Wed Nov 28, 2012 8:07 pm

I have been worrying a bit about ambushes as I teleport into and out of places, and I thought of a solution: the ability to scry your memorized locations, so that you can see if it is safe to teleport there or not.

Also on a related note, a strong enough / knowledgeable enough magi should theoretically be capable of counter-scrying (detecting who is scrying on them, or at least the general location and/or direction it is coming from), and possibly reversing their spell to scry on the would-be spy, or teleport to them.

Counter Scrying:

Detect Scrying - Spell - learnable, infact is in the research system, the only problem for it is the lack of waffle books to hide it in.

Anyone scrying on the caster is detected, the caster knows who and where they are scrying from.


Non Detection - Spell or Item - learnable, again is in the system but lack of waffle books to hide in.

Blocks the abilty to scry on the caster. Also hides from Detection spells,
But can be overcome with successful Spell Breach spell, which however alerts the caster that that spell has been breached.

Sorry guys it will take a long while from my side but I am working on several recipe books, at the moment items, will probably go to the spells over time but at the moment real life and sickness are kind of keeping me busy and unable to focus a lot on such things.

Also, Eriniel, all custom spells will be DnD spells right and DnD spells only?

Get well! also, I think we have spells that were not from D&D too, that were completely come up with by Erin & Oda.
