Sense Spell

Divination cantrip

Casting Time: 1 action

Range: Self (10-foot-radius sphere)

Components: V, S

Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute

You specify one spell at the time of casting; it must not have a duration of “instantaneous.”

The spell must be on your spell list, and you must be of a high-enough level to cast it. If the specified spell is in effect within the area, you become aware of it. You gain no other information—you don’t know the caster, caster level, remaining duration, or even the number of such spells in the area.

Spells whose effects confuse or block divinations (such as nondetection) automatically foil this cantrip, and therefore cannot be detected with it. If a creature has a spell on it that changes or conceals its appearance (such as disguise self) and that spell is the one you specified, the creature can make a Wisdom saving throw against your spell save DC to prevent the cantrip from detecting their spell.
