Scrying was the magical ability to use one's senses to experience events far away.[1]

Magical sensorEdit

Many divination spells of the scrying subschool created a magical sensor that sent the caster information. The sensor had the sensory acuity of the caster and acted as though it were a separate, independent organ.[1] Any intelligent creature could notice an active magical sensor. The sensor could be dispelled.[1]

LimitsEdit

Scrying could not penetrate lead.[1] Several magic spells, antimagic field, mind blank, nondetection,[1] and wardmist[2] could block scrying. Magical items such as weirdstones could also block scrying.[3] The semi-precious stone tchazar could blur the scrying of anything close to it.[4]

AidsEdit

A chrysoberyl gem (aka "cat's eye") could be used for short-range but very detailed scrying.[5]
