This spell allows you to find the shortest, most direct physical route to a specific fixed location that you are familiar with on the same plane of existence. If you name a destination on another plane of existence, a destination that moves (such as a mobile fortress), or a destination that isn't specific (such as a green dragon's lair), the spell fails.

For the duration, as long as you are on the same plane of existence as the destination, you know how far it is and in what direction it lies. While you are traveling there, whenever you are presented with a choice of paths along the way, you automatically determine which path is the shortest and most direct route (but not necessarily the safest route) to the destination.

The SendingStone review

Find the Path is considered to be a powerful divination spell that allows the caster to find the quickest and most direct physical route to a desired location. However, some argue that its usefulness is limited as it only provides direction and not information about any obstacles or dangers on the way. Additionally, it requires at least a minute of uninterrupted concentration to cast and requires costly divinatory tools as material components. Despite these drawbacks, experienced adventurers and explorers may find # Find the Path to be a valuable tool in their arsenal.

Find the Path is D&D (Dungeons & Dragons) 5th edition content, but other TTRPGs may have their own version such as a Find the Path Pathfinder edition. Want to use Find the Path in a VTT (virtual tabletop)? Try out SendingStone for free today!
