By tapping into the ancient knowledge of the land itself, you can learn the hidden secrets of your monstrous enemies. When you cast this spell, you must make a Wisdom check with a DC equal to 12 + the monster’s proficiency bonus. If you succeed, you learn information about that monster. This can include where it lairs, what its weaknesses are, or what it eats. If you succeed by 5 or more or roll a natural 20, you might also learn the truename of one specific creature of that type within 1 mile, at your DM’s discretion. Some monsters may not have a truename or have special protection against such divinations.
