Sixth Level

Communication 1 (Divination, Sixth Level)

Range:  30ft
Duration:  1 minute
Vocal:  Communication 1
Effect: The Priest calls a spirit whose true name is known to come from the plane of their god and answer questions. The name of the spirit to be called is inscribed on a scroll of parchment and placed where the spirit is to be summoned. The spirit will appear immediately when the miracle is complete and make its presence known. The caster then has a minute to ask as many questions as she/he can, all of which must be answerable by a simple yes or no. The spirit is bound to answer truthfully. If the spirit is hostile to the caster, it may attack with a level drain immediately, hence it is advisable to place the scroll in an appropriate Protection From Spirits.
