Emotion read was a simple divine spell that allowed a cleric to receive an instant read on a target's emotional state.[1][2] The spell could also be provided in scroll form by the holy relic known as the Balance of Belaros.[3]

Effects[edit | edit source]

The spell was limited to reading the emotions of only one individual within 5 yards (4.6 meters) or greater—and only the strongest of that individual's emotions. Targets with powerful strength of will could resist the read or even cause the spell to provide an opposite read from the true one. The spell gave no indication about the cause or topic of the emotion felt.[1][2]

Components[edit | edit source]

The spell required verbal and somatic components and an unmarked square of white wax.[1][2]
