Sorcerer/Witch/Wizard (Divination) 1
Make contact with an extra-dimensional intelligence to ask one question per caster level. The spell renders the entity’s responses in a language in which the caster is fluent, but it is up to the character to parse the meaning of the messages.
Prolonged exposure to so alien a mind becomes increasingly dangerous. Starting with the second question asked, the caster must make an Intelligence saving throw with a difficulty that increases by one for each question. On a failed save, the spell miscasts.
Optional Spell Miscast Table for LotFP (roll 1d12):
1 – The caster is physiologically and psychologically incapable of withstanding the alien intelligence – they die screaming as their brain melts out of their ears and nose.
2 – The information bestowed is beyond all comprehension – the caster loses 1 point of Wisdom (plus one point per question asked after the first) and is incapacitated for one round (plus one round per question asked after the first).
3 – The answer completely upends the caster’s worldview – their alignment shifts to the diametrically opposite viewpoint. (If neutral, randomly choose the new alignment).
4 – The entity is curious about existence in this primitive dimension – for one hour (plus one hour per additional question asked) the caster’s body is hijacked by the alien intelligence.
5 – The caster’s mind is temporarily amplified – their Intelligence score is raised to 19 for one round per caster level.
6 – The caster should feel sincerely honored – the entity they contacted has chosen them to be its emissary in this dimension. The caster is indelibly marked in some way (consult your favorite table of random cosmetic mutations). From time to time, the entity will contact the caster to transmit its latest instructions. During this communion, which lasts 1d10 rounds, the caster is incapacitated.
7+ – Consult the generic mishap table.
