Circle of Scrying

Circle of Scrying

Components: V, S

Casting Time: 1 minute

Duration: Concentration, up to 8 hours

Range: Self

Area of Effect: 1 magic circle

Saving Throw: None

You empower a magic circle that links to sigils of seeing you previously created. You can select a number of sigils up to your Intelligence modifier (minimum of 1). The distance between the circle of scrying and the sigils of seeing is not a factor, and the sigils can even be on other planes of existence.

When you stand inside your circle of scrying, you can view the area around any of the linked sigils as if you were actually standing at the location of the sigil. You can switch between different sigils as an action.

The casting time for the spell depends on whether the circle is being drawn anew or a previously placed, permanent circle is being empowered. Drawing a new circle takes one day. Empowering a previously placed, permanent circle takes 1 minute.

Drawing a new circle requires material components costing 250 gold pieces. The circle is typically a flat design of a geometric shape with a 5-foot radius.

A sigil of seeing is created spending one minute drawing the sigil on a flat surface. Each sigil requires special ink that costs 100 gold pieces per sigil. The sigil disappears within moments of being drawn, but it reappears when you are scrying through it. A sigil is typically no more an inch in diameter. While a sigil is in use, it can be noticed by anyone who examines the spot where it’s drawn and makes a successful DC 10 Wisdom (Perception) or Intelligence (Investigation) check. While the sigil isn’t in use, finding it requires a deliberate search of the correct area and a successful Intelligence (Investigation) check against your spell saving throw DC.
