Wondrous item, common

This item appears as a small oblong piece of metal or stone a few inches long. The item itself is very gently drawn to a specific location, which varies from one dowsing stone to another. The pulling force just enough that a creature who holds it can faintly feel the tug. If set on natural ground, the pull will not be enough for the stone to roll through dirt, sand, or clumps of grass even if the stone is perfectly round.

Dowsing stones are occasionally sold for well-known locations in lieu of, or in addition to, traditional maps and directions. Often these stones are colored or painted with specific colors or patterns that correlate to their targeted location, such as a stone painted with wheat that is drawn towards a farming village known for that crop. Stones tied to elusive or obscure locations may be of greater rarity and value.

A dowsing stone can be created using the dowse location spell.
