Weird Arcana - Damodred’s Gift (New Spell)

Damodred’s Gift
Level: Bard 1, Sorcerer/Wizard 1, Witch 1
Components: V, S
Casting Time: 1 minute
Range: Touch
Target: A tiny non-magical object
Duration: 1 day/level
Saving Throw: None
Spell Resistance: No

You weave a delicate silk-like thread of eldritch forces on a petite object of mundane nature, like a coin. For the dweomer’s duration, you’ll be able to determine the object’s direction and relative proximity (generally knowing if the object is within 1000 ft. or farther than 10 miles).

The object can be the target of a scrying spell; allowing the caster to treat the creature carrying it as familiar and as if he had a body part.  Spells and materials that block divination also stop Damodred’s Gift. The dweomer is instantly dismissed if the object crosses a planar border (or is teleported).

Damodred’s Gift has a drawback. If the object is taken by a rival spellcaster, it can be used to cast scrying on the original caster (with the same bonus above) or as an extra focus on any spell against the original caster, who suffers a –2 penalty on his saves.
