Hear Heartbeat

2nd-level divination

Classes: Druid 2, Ranger 2, Wizard 2

Casting Time: 1 action

Range: 30 feet

Components: V, S

Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute

For the duration, you can hear the actual heartbeat of each living creature within 30 feet of you. This allows you to discern the number of creatures in your vicinity, the general direction of each heartbeat. You also gain clues as to the size, overall health, or emotional state based on the strength and speed of each heartbeat. For example, a larger animal has a correspondingly louder heartbeat, a sickly or elderly individual has a slower, weaker heartbeat, and a creature in emotional distress has an accelerated heart rate.

While this spell remains in effect, you suffer disadvantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks as this spell demands most of your awareness. You do not hear your own heartbeat with this spell, and all other sounds other than heartbeats are muffled and indistinct.

The spell does not penetrate barriers.
