The divination school of magic contains spells that enable the caster to learn secrets long forgotten, interpret dreams[1], predict the future, to find hidden things or foil deceptive spells. Among them are included detect magic and scry.[2] A wizard who specializes in divination is known as a diviner.[3] Divination is often considered the "weakest" of the schools; specialist diviners need only forsake one other school, other than the normal two, and no other specialist can use Divination as one of their forsaken schools.[3]

In 2nd edition D&D the divination school was divided into major/minor schools called greater/lesser divination. Lesser divination spells were available to all wizards regardless of specialization.[4]

Subschools[edit | edit source]

  • Scrying: Spells from this subschool create an invisible sensor that allows the creator to experience events over long distances. Intelligent creatures can sometimes get the feeling that they are being watched while under this kind of observation, and several spells or even a simple lead sheet can interrupt the sensor.
