    Default A social spell

    Detect Sarcasm
    Divination
    Level: Sor/Wiz 1, Brd 1, Pal 5
    Components: V, M
    Casting time: 1 standard action
    Range: Self
    Target: 60 foot circle
    Duration: concentration plus 1 minute per level
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: No

    While the spell lasts, the caster will be able to discern whether someone he hears speaking, or some text he reads, is or is not sarcastic. This effect gives a +2 circumstance bonus to bluff and diplomacy checks against sarcastic people. At his option, any creature (or text) within the target area can be made to glow softly, so as to indicate to other people who is being sarcastic. This spell does not confer understanding of otherwise-unknown languages, beyond knowing whether or not they're used sarcastically.

    The material component is a grain of salt.

    Tee-Hee... that's as funny as it is useful. I'm surprised no one has come up with that one before. Good job.












    Now that I think about it, all of my above praise could be interpreted as pure sarcasm. Hmm, do you cast Detect Sarcasm (which could also be called Detect Sincerity), or do you perform a Sense Motive check?

    Aint that the truth. All knowledge should be taken with a grain of salt.

    Don't forget to put a descriptor. Most likely it would be [Language-Dependant].

    This'd actually be pretty good to combine with a language learning system, as sarcasm in a foreign language is damned hard to catch.
    The road goes ever on and on,
    Down from the door where it began,
    Now far ahead the road has gone,
    And I must follow, if I can--
    Pursuing it with eager feet,
    Meeting those who travel on the way,
    Where many paths and errands meet,
    And whither then, I cannot say.
    --J.R.R. Tolkien
