The character can detect the aura that surrounds undead. The
amount of information revealed depends on how long the character
studies a particular area or subject:
1st Round: Presence or absence of undead auras.
2nd Round: Number of undead auras in the area and the strength
of the strongest undead aura present. If the character is of good
alignment, the strongest undead auras strength is
"overwhelming" (see below), and the strength is at
least twice the character's character level, the character is
stunned for 1 round and the spell ends. While the character is
stunned, the character cant act, the character loses any
Dexterity bonus to AC, and attackers gain +2 bonuses to attack
3rd Round: The strength and location of each aura. If an aura
is outside the character's line of sight, then the character
discerns its direction but not its exact location.
Aura Strength: The strength of the undead aura is determined
by the HD of the undead creature.
Dim Lingering aura
Faint 1 or less
Length Aura Lingers: How long the aura lingers depends on its
Aura Strength Duration
Faint 1d6 minutes
Moderate 1d6 X 10 minutes
Strong 1d6 hours
Overwhelming 1d6 days
Note: Each round, the character can turn to detect things in a
new area. The spell can penetrate barriers, but 1 foot of stone,
1 inch of common metal, a thin sheet of lead, or 3 feet of wood
or dirt blocks it.
