(Planar Handbook)

Level: Bard 3, Cleric 3, Sorcerer 3, Wizard 3,
Components: V, S, M,
Casting Time: 1 minute
Range: 60 ft.
Area: A quarter circle emanating from you to the extreme of the range
Duration: Concentration, up to 1 round/level (D)
Saving Throw: See text
Spell Resistance: No You can tell whether an area contains a planar touchstone.

If you study an area for 1 round, you know the location of any touchstone in the area.
Once you find a touchstone, you can study it.
(If you find more than one touchstone—an extremely rare occurrence—you can study only one at a time).
Each round you study a touchstone, you can discover one property of the touchstone, in this order:

  • The base ability gained by someone who takes the Planar Touchstone feat related to the site.
  • Any conditions that must be met in order to recharge the higher-order ability granted by the site.
  • The higher-order ability gained by someone who visits the touchstone and fulfills the recharge condition.
  • The number of uses of the higher-order ability that the character gains from visiting the site and fulfilling the recharge condition.

For each of these properties, you make a caster level check (1d20 + caster level) against DC 15.
If you fail, you can try again in the next round.
Material Components: A crystal lens, a drop of ink, and a piece of paper or parchment.
