Target creature casting a detect spell
Saving throw: Will partial; see text Spell Resistance: Yes
You can cast this spell when you succeed in identifying a Detect spell being cast, where you are the target or in the targeted area. A circlet of bright blue light surrounds your head for a brief moment as you turn the spell back upon its caster. Your opponent’s spell fails unless they make a Will save, but either way you gain the benefits of the Detect spell as if you had cast it. You can even use reverse detection on a spell-like ability or supernatural ability whose effects mimic a detect spell. A creature that fails its will save cannot cast that spell with you in the area or as the target for 24 hours.
We’re back! This time to present a spell of subtle power and specific utility, but with an edge that can win the most important moments. How many times has your life depended on remembering to cast detect magic? When has detect evil not been abused to make everyone’s life easier?
Play hardcore. Use Reverse Detection.
