Your eyes take a golden hue as your vision is able to detect all life around you as it were a tangible object.

You can detect living creatures in a cone emanating out from you in whatever direction you face. The amount of information revealed depends on how long you search a particular area.

1st Round Presence or absence of intelligent life in the area.
2nd Round Number of individuals in the area, and the condition of the healthiest specimen.
3rd Round The condition (see below) and location of each individual present. If a creature is outside your line of sight, then you discern its direction but not its exact location.

Conditions For purposes of this spell, the categories of condition are as follows:

Normal Has at least 90% of full normal hit points, free of disease.
Fair 30% to 90% of full normal hit points remaining.
Poor Less than 30% of full normal hit points remaining, afflicted with a disease, or suffering from a debilitating injury.
Weak 0 or fewer hit points remaining, afflicted with a disease in the terminal stage, or crippled.

If a creature falls into more than one category, the spell indicates the weaker of the two. Each round you can turn to detect creatures in a new area. The power can penetrate barriers, but 1 foot of stone, 1 inch of common metal, a thin sheet of lead, or 3 feet of wood or dirt blocks it.
