    Default Utterance of the Stricken Name

    Utterance of the Stricken Name
    Abjuration
    Level:
    Sor/Wiz 8, Dark Invocation (Universal)
    Components: V, S, M
    Casting Time: 10 Minutes
    Range: Personal
    Duration: 12 hours/level
    Uttering a diluted version of an ancient word so powerful that the gods destroyed the one who found it out of fear, you render yourself undetectable to all but the most powerful Diviners.
    While this spell is active you have complete immunity to Divination spells of 7th level or lower (that ould detect/see/knwo something about the caster such as detect evil, scrying, locate creature, arcane eye or other divination spells). In addition a caster using a higher spell must beat you at n opposed spellcraft check for the spell to function, and even if the caster wins the check there is a 20% chance that it still does not work.

    Note: I feel this may be too powerful as it basically kills divination, but I hate true sight, and hate always picking up a nondetection etc item to block them so here is... thinking about making it a Sor/Wiz 11...

    I'm back! Seems it was a bit early to say I had escaped the hospital, then got caught up with RL stuff... I'm back now though.

    And here I was thinking the level is (for once) too high. If 7th level divination can penetrate it then wouldn't 7th be a sensible level for this protection? If you're concerned that 7th is too low, I say just leave it where it is.

    Put it at 8 as a compromise

    8 seems good. Mindblank (8th level) kills one school (Enchantment), so there's precedent.
