Description: The Distant Gaze spell allows you to watch the goings-on where you have a moonbeam focused. Though it is not the most powerful scrying tool available to Moon Mages, it works well for guard duty, where a mage can be aware of people or creatures approaching an area -- such as outside a home or on the entry path to a dangerous hunting area.

In addition, the psychic link this spell establishes can be used to project thoughts in a limited capacity. If the spell is cast while firmly concentrating on a message, the magic will expend itself as a weak telepathic wave. A crude but effective means to "speak" to people remotely.

Effect: Scry on moonbeam (continuous), Project message through moonbeam
Example Messaging: You gesture.

You concentrate on your Katamba moonbeam, overlaying an oddly flat image from its location upon your normal vision...

Message Sending:
You gesture.
You project through your moonbeam, "Hello."

Syntax
