  1. High-level Play, Part 3

    Make Yourself Aware of Other Divination Spells
    The universal counter to divinations is the Vecna-blooded template (Monster Manual 5 66-7), which unravels the creature from cosmic tapestry or something, and it’s pretty awesome. There’s nothing else in the game that humps divinations harder than the Vecna-blooded template.
