You can detect other worshipers of your deity (mortal worshipers, outsider servants, and so on).

The amount of information revealed depends on how long you focus on a particular area or subject.

  • 1st Round: Presence or absence of the faithful.
  • 2nd Round: Number of individual faithful in the area.
  • 3rd Round: The exact location of each worshiper. If a fellow worshiper is outside your line of sight, then you discern his direction but not his exact location.

Each round you can rotate to detect worshipers in a new area. The spell can penetrate barriers, but a sheet of lead, 1 foot of stone, 1 inch of common metal, or 3 feet of wood or dirt blocks it. The GM decides if worshipers are present. A creature’s personal interpretation of its beliefs determines whether or not it is of the same faith as you — hence heretics and splinter cultists of your deity still count as worshipers of that deity.

The Green Faith counts as a deity for the purpose of this spell.

This spell can be made permanent.
