Mind Probe

Mind Probe Spell 5

Uncommon Divination Linguistic Mental

Traditions arcane, occult

Cast 1 minute (material, somatic, verbal)

Range 30 feet; Targets 1 creature

Saving Throw Will; Duration sustained up to 1 minute


You cast your thoughts through a creature’s mind, sifting for information. You access the target’s memories and knowledge unless it fends you off with a Will save.

Success The target is unaffected.

Failure Each round of the spell’s duration, you can Sustain the Spell to ask a different question and attempt to uncover the answer. For each question, the target can attempt a Deception check against your spell DC; if the target succeeds, you don’t learn the answer, and on a critical success, the target gives you a false answer that you believe is truthful Once you’ve asked the target a given question, asking it again, even with a separate casting of mind probe, produces the same result.

Critical Failure As failure, and the target takes a -4 circumstance penalty to Deception checks against your questions.
