(ritual); 1 minute/mana
As you spend 1 minute to cast this spell, you mentally contact the spirit of a long-dead creature. Contacting this creature can strain or even break your mind. When you cast this spell, make a Difficulty 15 Will saving throw.
On a failure, you take 6d6 psychic damage and are insane until you finish a long rest. While insane, you can’t use actions, can’t understand what other creatures say, can’t read, and speak only in gibberish. A restoration spell augmented to greater restoration cast on you ends this effect.
On a success, you can ask the entity up to five questions. You must ask your questions before the spell ends. The GM answers each question with one word, such as “yes,” “no,” “maybe,” “never,” “irrelevant,” or “unclear” (if the entity doesn’t know the answer to the question). If a one-word answer would be misleading, the GM might instead offer a short phrase as an answer.
