T his spell detects Elementalism magic. Magicians find this
spell useful when trying to determine if an item is magical
because many magical items are enchanted with True Elements by
Elementalists. The spell otherwise works in the same manner as the
Astral Sense spell, p. 150, but only on the physical plane.

T his spell senses people, creatures, magic doors, magic items,
and so on, in astral space. The magician rolls his eyes upward
and makes a Spellcasting (6) Test. If successful, he is able to detect
other presences in astral space. Each round, the magician compares
his Effect Test against the Spell Defense of any target within the
area of effect. If successful, the target is detected. If more than one
target is in the area of effect, the magician detects those with the
lowest Spell Defense first. Once detected, a target stays detected as
long as he remains within the area of effect. Once the spell is cast,
a magician will often take a minute or two to sense nearby members
of his group and verify that an astral presence is not coming
from a comrade. Once his comrades have been sensed, the magician
knows the next target detected is unknown to him. Making an
Effect Test does not prevent the magician from taking other actions
that round—sensing is a Simple Action (see Actions, p. 215). The
magician may attempt to cast spells on a target that he has astrally
sensed, even if he cannot otherwise see the target. Magicians use
this spell for many different reasons. It is often cast to determine
if an item or object has an astral presence, or to detect the presence
of nearby entities or Horrors within astral space. A magician
using Astral Sense to view a magical item can sense the item’s magical
pattern and would learn it was magical in nature. However, he
would not gain any information about the item’s history or learn
any Key Knowledges.
