Detect Poison and Disease

Casting Time
yew leaf
Concentration ( 10 minutes )

Range: Special (30-foot radius)

On the round you cast it, and as an action on subsequent turns until the spell ends, you can attempt to sense the presence of poisons , poisonous creatures, and disease by making a Perception check. On a success you identify the type of each poison or disease within range. Typically noticing and identifying a poison or disease is a DC 10 check, but the Narrator may use DC 15 for uncommon afflictions, DC 20 for rare afflictions, or DC 25 for afflictions that are truly unique. On a failed check, this casting of the spell cannot sense that specific poison or disease.

The spell penetrates most barriers but is blocked by 3 feet of wood or dirt, 1 foot of stone, 1 inch of common metal, or a thin sheet of lead.
