Description

You murmur words of power, and trace lines on your face in intricate patterns, temporarily augmenting your sense of taste and smell to a supernatural degree, allowing you to instantly determine whether a creature, object, or area within range has been poisoned or is poisonous.
The spell 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.
Detect Poison does not reveal the name or nature of a poison, only the presence of it. To determine the poison's properties, you must acquire a sample of it (or study a victim of it), and make an appropriate Profession (Alchemist), Profession (Herbalist), or Heal check.
