MagicUser - SpellDetail

Contact Other Plane
Casting Time:
1 turn
Saving Throw:
Area of Effect:
When this spell is cast, the magic-user sends his or her mind to another plane of existence in order to receive advice and information from powers there. As these powers are located at random, and resent such contact in any case, only brief answers will be given. (Your DM will answer all questions with a “yes”, “no”, “maybe”, “never”, “irrelevant”, etc.) The character can contact an elemental plane or some plane further removed. For every 2 levels of experience of the magic-user one question may be asked. Contact with minds far removed from the plane of the magic-user increases the probability of the spell caster going insane or dying, but the chance of the power knowing the answer, as well as the probability of the being telling the correct answer, are likewise increased by moving to distant planes: Likelihood Likelihood Likelihood Plane of Insanity* of Knowledge of Veracity** Elemental 20% 90%*** 75% 1 removed 5% 60% 65% 2 removed 10% 65% 67% 3 removed 15% 70% 70% 4 removed 20% 75% 73% 5 removed 25% 80% 75% 6 removed 30% 85% 78% 7 removed 35% 90% 81% 8 removed 40% 95% 85% 9 or more removed 50% 98% 90% *For every 1 point of intelligence over 15, the magic user reduces probability of insanity by 5%. ** If the answer is unknown, and the answer is not true, the being will answer definitely. If truth is indicated, it will answer “unknown.” *** Assumes knowledge of questions pertaining to the appropriate elemental plane. Insanity will strike as soon as 1 question is asked. It will last for 1 week for each removal of the plane contacted, 10 weeks maximum. There is a 1% chance per plane that the magic-user will die before recovering unless a remove curse spell is cast upon him or her.
