This performance is a bafflingly complex meditation on the infinite interconnections within and beyond the known universe, evoking images of horrific entities hidden in plain sight.
Cost: Feat or 3rd-level bard spell known.
Effect: You can see invisible creatures, including ethereal creatures (as see invisibility). In addition, if a creature is scrying upon or otherwise remotely viewing any location within 60 feet of you, you can also perceive a fleeting glimpse of that creature. This might incite dread, if the creature is a Great Old One or other appropriate entity, even if you can’t clearly identify it.
You can clearly glimpse these viewers (although not their surroundings) with a successful Perception check against DC 5 + viewer’s caster level. You can identify a glimpsed viewer’s plane of existence with a successful Knowledge (planes) check against DC 20. This performance has audible and visual components.
Use: 1 bardic performance round per minute.
Action: 1 standard action.
