Step 14

The Symbol of Sight, governed by Lord Tonis, is obtained at the fourteenth step of the Order of Voln. This symbol, similar in function to the Locate Person (116) spell, can be used to observe a fellow member of the order and view their surroundings for a short duration as if the invoker was physically present with them. In order to be successful, the <target> must be within range (the same realm) and not hidden from view.

This symbol can be used on characters who are dead and hidden by creatures that can conceal bodies.

Clerics, Empaths and other rescuers will often use this symbol to locate fellow members to aid them during their time of need.
