Detect good was a divination spell that provided information about objects or creatures with a good aura.[2][13][14][15] Some versions of this spell were reversible, becoming detect evil, and operated in the same manner but for evil auras instead.[13][14][15]

Effects[]

This spell functioned exactly like detect evil except it detected good auras from paladins, good clerics, spells, magic items, etc.[2][13][14][15] Just as poison did not show up as evil, beneficial potions did not register as good.[2]

History[]

The arcane version of the detect evil/detect good spell was invented by Netherese arcanist Trebbe in −2238 DR under the name Trebbe's scry evil/Trebbe's scry good.[1][16][note 2]

Notes[]

  1. This spell was removed from the All sphere and placed in the Divination sphere by the Player's Option: Spells & Magic sourcebook. See page 186.
  2. Only the primary form is named in the source. The name of the reversed form, Trebbe's scry good, is chosen in analogy.
