Ascertain Inventory (5e Spell)

From D&D Wiki

Note: This is a variant of the spell Local Inventory. It is recommended only to allow one of the two in your game, as they fill the same general function (with a few differences on limitations and details).

Ascertain Inventory
3rd-level Divination (ritual)
Casting time: 1 action
Range: Self
Components: S, M (A piece of paper or parchment, a quill of owl-feather, and a glass lens)
Duration: Instantaneous

You momentarily project a 30-foot cone in one direction, in which you target each non-magical container (such as a barrel or chest) which you are aware of. This spell is halted by 1 foot of stone, 1 inch of a common metal, a thin sheet of lead, or 3 feet of wood or dirt.

Any nonmagical, non-living receptacle which contains separate objects (which are not integral components to said holding item) can be considered a container. This means that a barrel (which might hold a separable liquid) is considered a container, whereas a clock (which requires its component gears to function) is not.

You immediately become aware of the generalities of every item held within the container, as well as the quantity of each type of item therein. For example, if there are 6 potions of healing and one potion of bull's strength, you would simply ascertain that there are 7 potions in the container without determining their properties.

If an item in the container is magical, you can detect the presence of magic but cannot distinguish which items are magical. You also are unable to ascertain the specifics of the magical effect, though you can determine if it has a related school and which school that is. If multiple spell schools are present, you only ascertain the one with the most powerful aura.

If there are containers within the container you are targeting, you become aware of these sub-containers but not their contents.

Any information discovered through this spell appears as writing on the component piece of parchment. The writing disappears after 1 minute.
