I can see that my laser idea bombed somewhat, but I think this might work. I just managed to finish working on it and I feel it is ready for posting. DISCLAIMER: This is only the preliminary work. I am open to changes. Any comments on price would be appreciated. Also, this is one of my first attempts at spell creation. It may need work. If anything is not right, please tell me. Ok, here goes: First of all I needed to create a spell appropriate to this item. None of the other spells seemed to fit quite right. Besides, it needed to be a powerful spell in order to work right. Here is the spell: Telar's All-Purpose Detection Spell Level: 9 School: Greater Divination Range: 100 ft/level of caster Components: V,S,M Duration: 4 rounds / level of caster Casting time: 2 rounds Area of Effect: caster Saving Throw: None When cast this spell will allow the caster to detect any objects within the range of the spell. Walls, people, monsters, items, traps, etc., all will be detected. No saving throw is allowed, so no one will be able to escape detection. Now, here's the array itself. The Model 100 Sensor Array This device looks like a small box , aout 1'x1'x1'. On the front is a pane of glass which serves as the screen. An All-Purpose Detection Spell has been cast on it, with the duration and range amplified. When activated, the array will display a map of all objects within 100 miles of the device. Different size objects show up as different colored dots. 1-60 tons Blue 60-300 tons Green 300+ tons Purple Planets A-E Yellow Planets F-J Orange Crystal spheres Red (This functions only in the Phlogiston) The brighter the dot, the closer the object. This device was created by the Arcane for use on their vessels. However, the Arcane realized that it could be quite a money maker. So, they decided to make it available for sale. It takes a lot of time to create one, however, so they are expensive. The prices is around 300,000-400,000 GP. There you have it. Please, if you notice anything wrong, feel free to note it. I hope my flame-resistant force shield is operating within normal paramters. Later. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~ ~ ~ Shane C.
