“Okay, let’s make this concise.”
You send a short message of twenty-five words or less1. You send the message to a specific location that is familiar to you, to a particular creature with which you are familiar, or to the location of such a creature.
If you send the message to a location, the message sounds at the location. It is spoken softly, in your voice. If you send the message to a specific creature, the message is spoken inside the creature’s head, heard only by that creature.
The subject recognizes you if it knows your voice.
Augment: You can augment this spell in one or more of the following ways:
If you spend 2 additional spell points, you can cast this spell as a Standard action.
If you spend 2 additional spell points, the spell’s range changes to Unlimited. It can reach any familiar creature or location on the same plane.
If you spend 3 additional spell points, the spell’s range changes to Unlimited and can reach other planes of existence. There is a 5% chance that the sending gets lost when crossing planar boundaries. (Local conditions on other planes may worsen this chance considerably. Deities can entirely block sendings from being sent or received on their home planes.)
If you spend 2 additional spell points, a recipient of the spell can immediately give you a reply, as if he had cast the Sending himself (using the same augments). You can not reply to his reply without another casting of Sending. The reply always targets your person, not your area. In the case of multiple recipients, all recipients can attempt to contribute to the reply, but the reply as a whole is still limited to 25 words.
For every additional spell point you spend, you can send a message one word longer.
