Locate object was a divination spell that let one sense the direction to an object.


The caster sensed the direction to a well-known or clearly visualized object. The spell located such objects as apparel, jewelry, furniture, tools, weapons, or even a ladder. The caster could search for general items such as a stairway, a sword, or a jewel, in which case he or she located the nearest one of its type if more than one was within range. Attempting to find a specific item, such as a particular piece of jewelry, required a specific and accurate mental image; if the image was not close enough to the actual object, the spell failed. The caster could not specify a unique object unless he or she had observed that particular item first hand (not through divination).

The spell was blocked by lead. Creatures could not be found by this spell. Polymorph any object fooled the spell.

The reversed form, obscure object, shielded an object from magical divination.[3]
