Haruspicy

Haruspicy (pronounced ha-RUSS-pa-see) is the bloody art of reading the future in the entrails of an animal. This spell empowers the art of the haruspex with divine prophecy.

Components: V, S, M, F
Casting Time: 10 minutes
Range: Personal
Target: You
Duration: Instantaneous

You sacrifice an animal (usually a goat or a sheep) and read its entrails for information on the future of a given person. The base chance of receiving a general omen as to what the immediate future (roughly a day to a week) holds is 50% +2% per caster level.

The GM determines the actual nature of the hint, but you receive no indication of when exactly it will come to pass. For instance, a haruspicy reading might give the result: “A dagger yearns to be used” – this may indicate that the subject of the divination is marked by an assassin, or that he is being warned that his own dagger will bring him misfortune. The omens are classically unclear, but a successful check always provides some true hint of the future.

Material Component: The sacrificial animal.

Focus: A ceremonial dagger worth at least 25 gp.
