Duration: Concentration, up to 10 minutes

You can see and hear a particular creature you choose
that is on the sam e plane o f existence as you. The target
must make a W isdom saving throw, which is modified
by how well you know the target and the sort of physical
con n ection you have to it. If a target k n ow s you're
castin g this spell, it can fail the saving th row voluntarily
if it w ants to be observed.

Knowledge Save Modifier
Secondhand (you have heard of the target) +5
Firsthand (you have met the target) +0
Familiar (you know the target well) -5

Connection Save Modifier
Likeness or picture -2
Possession or garment -4
Body part, lock of hair, bit of nail, or the like -10

On a successful save, the target isn’t affected, and you
ca n ’t use this spell against it again for 24 hours.

On a failed save, the spell creates an invisible sensor
within 10 feet of the target. You can see and hear through
the sensor as if you w ere there. The sensor m oves with
the target, rem ainin g w ithin 10 feet o f it for the duration.
A creature that can see invisible objects sees the sensor
as a lu m in ou s orb about the size o f your fist.

Fa n t a s y - H i s t o r i c a l Pa n t h e o n s

The Celtic, Egyptian, Greek, and N orse pantheons are
fantasy interpretations of historical religions from our
w orld’s ancient tim es. They include deities that are
m ost appropriate for u se in a D & D gam e, divorced from
their historical context in the real w orld and united into
pantheons that serve the needs o f the game.

T h e C e l t ic Pa n t h e o n
It’s said that som eth in g w ild lurks in the heart o f every
soul, a space that thrills to the sound of geese calling
at night, to the w hispering w ind through the pines, to
the unexpected red o f m istletoe on an oak—and it is in
this space that the Celtic gods dwell. They sprang from
the brook and stream, their might heightened by the
strength of the oak and the beauty of the w oodlands and
open moor. W hen the first forester dared put a name to
the face seen in the bole o f a tree or the voice babbling
in a brook, these gods forced them selves into being.

The Celtic gods are as often served by druids as by
clerics, for they are closely aligned with the forces of
nature that druids revere.

T h e G r e e k Pa n t h e o n
The gods o f Olympus make themselves known with the
gentle lap o f waves against the shores and the crash of
the thunder am ong the cloud-enshrouded peaks. The
thick boar-infested w ood s and the sere, olive-covered
hillsides hold evidence o f their passing. Every aspect
o f nature e c h o e s w ith their p resen ce, and they’ve m ade

T hese gods are a young dynasty o f an ancient divine
family, heirs to the rulership o f the cosm os and the
m aintenance o f the divine principle o f M a’at—the
fundam ental order o f truth, justice, law, and order that
puts gods, mortal pharaohs, and ordinary men and

The Egyptian pantheon is unusual in having three
