Unseen Cartographer

1st-level conjuration

Casting Time: 1 action

Range: 30 feet

Components: V, S, M (cartographer’s tools, ink, paper)

Duration: 1 hour

You cause an invisible, mindless, shapeless force to come into existence in an unoccupied space on the ground within range. It has AC 10, 1 hit point, and a Strength of 2, and it can’t attack. If it drops to 0 hit points, the spell ends. Otherwise, the force follows you, remaining within range, for the duration.

Carrying the material components, the force uses them to draw a map of the areas you can see as you pass through. You can use your action to send the cartographer away from you, up to the edge of the spell’s range, and it can map from there as if it were a normal human looking at the area from that point. The quality of the map is similar to that of one produced by a competent scout. The cartographer does not indicate creatures, hazards, or other such items on its map, but only the physical, architectural, and topographical features of the surrounding space.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 2nd level or higher, double the range for each slot level above 1st. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 3rd level or higher, the unseen cartographer notices hidden doors and traps within 10 feet of it if a Wisdom (Perception) check of 15 or lower would notice those hidden elements. The force simple draws the hidden elements on the map; it has no other means of letting you know of their presence. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 4th level or higher, the cartographer also has darkvision out to a range of 60 feet. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 5th level or higher, the cartographer can fly, allowing it to make maps from an aerial view within the spell’s range (480 feet at 5th level).
