You feel as if something were pulling your mind in a certain direction, and you know the spell has succeeded.
You sense the direction (but not distance) towards a well-known or clearly visualized object.
You can search for both general items, in which case you locate the nearest one of its kind if more than one is within range, or for a certain or unique item.
An object that is not well-known or clearly visualized can be found by having on hand a token object closely related to the one to be found. For example, a wooden splinter from a spear could be used to find the weapon itself.
If your mental image is not clear enough or not close enough to the actual object, the spell fails. The same applies when using an insufficiently related token.
The spell penetrates all normal barriers within range, but is blocked by even a thin sheet of lead or a body of running water. Creatures cannot be found by this spell (but see Augment, below). It can be fooled by Nondetection and polymorph spells.
Augment: You can Augment this spell in one or both of the following ways:
If you spend 4 additional spell points, the range of the spell (and thereby the radius of the circle) increases to 1 mile per level.
If you spend 4 additional spell points, you can locate creatures with this spell, rather than only objects. To use an item to find a creature the item must be a part of the creature itself (such as a lock of hair) or be of great personal importance to the creature (such as a prized wedding band). The spell can find a specific kind (race or species) of creature, but not a general type or subtype. To find a kind of creature, you must have seen such a creature up close (within 30 feet) at least once.
