“Grant me wisdom in this hour of need.”
You contact your patron deity - or agents thereof - and ask questions that can be answered by a simple yes or no. (A caster with no particular patron deity contacts a philosophically allied deity.) You are allowed three such questions. The answers given are correct within the limits of the entity’s knowledge. ”Unclear” is a legitimate answer, because powerful beings of the Outer Planes are not necessarily omniscient. In cases where a one-word answer would be misleading or contrary to the deity’s interests, a short phrase (five words or less) may be given as an answer instead.
The spell, at best, provides information to aid character decisions. The entities contacted structure their answers to further their own purposes. If you lag, discuss the answers, or go off to do anything else, the spell ends.
Augment: For every 2 additional spell points you spend, you can ask an additional question.
Experience Cost: 100 XP.
