Sending was an evocation spell that instantly transmitted a brief message to any destination.[5]


The spellcaster made contact with a certain being he or she was familiar with and sent them a brief message of up to twenty-five words. If the recipient already knew the spellcaster, then they would recognize him or her. Afterward, the recipient could immediately respond with a similar message.[5]

Even creatures with extremely low intelligence, like animals, could receive and comprehend the sending, but their ability to respond was limited to their capabilities.[5]

The recipient was not obligated to act upon a sending in any manner.[5]

If the intended recipient was located on a different plane to the sender, then there was a one-in-a-twenty chance that the sending would not be received. The local effects of the plane could make it more difficult still.[5]


In addition to verbal and somatic components, sending required a short length of fine copper wire as a material component or divine focus.[5]


The spell was attributed to Netherese arcanist Enollar in −1593 DR and was originally called Enollar's sending.[1]
