Know direction was a divination spell that allowed the caster to immediately know which direction was north.[1][2]


This spell worked in any environment (underground, underwater, in darkness, etc.) that had a distinguishable north direction. Infinite or self-contained planes might not have a north, for example.[1][2]


The cantrip/orison version of this spell required only verbal and somatic components to cast.[1] The older version required a scrap of parchment from a 100-year old (or more) map.[2]
