Area of Effect: Caster
Casting Time: 7 Segments
Saving Throw: None
When this spell is cast the magic user is able to see through the eyes of another individual or even creature. They can then continue to make this occur multiple times until there is no longer a valid target for their vision to jump to.
The caster's vision must jump to a target that is not in their vision. If the target does come into their field of vision the spell is broken. The range that their vision can jump each time is 1" per level of experience. The caster can specify an initial direction for the spell to go towards but after that the direction will be randomly determined until a target can be found.
Once the caster's vision has jumped they will see what the target of the spell is seeing. The target of the spell will also see this and be none the wiser as to the fact that their vision is being shared. The caster has no influence on what the target does or where they look.
The caster can make their vision jump at any given time. The range it can jump will still be 1" per level of experience. Once a connection is made their is no limit on the maximum distance a target can move away from the caster. The spell will remain in effect as long as the caster maintains concentration.
The material component of this spell will be a preserved human or demihuman eyeball. It must come from the same race as the caster and the individual it came from will need to have been someone who had reason to use their eyes for nefarious reasons.
Disclaimer: The spells that you will see, for how ever long the write ups last, were all written up or conceived of back in the 80's so the terminology may not appropriate for anything other than 1e and depending on how well I did back then it may be slightly off for that as well. If there is any duplication of spells that exist now it is most likely I wrote mine first :) Please feel free to comment on them but try not to be too hard on me. If anyone wishes to use these in anything they print please let me know in advance and all I ask is proper credit.
