Peer Into The Future

3rd-level divination (ritual)

Casting Time: 1 hour

Range: Self

Components: V, S, M (1,000 gp worth of incense, herbs, and holy water)

Duration: Concentration, up to 10 minutes

You experience a vision of something you will be doing at some point in the future, anywhere from seven to seventeen days from now. The exact point in time is up to the Gm. You experience this vision from your future self’s senses (rather than viewing the scene from outside your body), and it occurs in real time— one minute passing in the vision requires you to watch it for one minute in the present. You have no control over your future self’s actions in the vision. The events you see are based on the possibilities available before you cast peer into the future; the knowledge you gain from the spell may change what the future brings.

The spell has enough power to ensure that the future period viewed is one of some importance to you. You will not, for example, view a time while you are asleep, eating a simple meal, or the like. You will view a battle, an important conversation or confrontation, or a similar moment. The Gm remains in full control of the particulars.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 4th level or higher, the maximum possible time into the future you may see increases by four days for each slot level above 3rd. For example, by using a 4th-level spell slot, the vision might be of events anywhere from seven to twenty-one days from the present.
