Nah, we should save that, unless we are towards the end of a given exploration period and haven't used it yet. If not, we'll just rely on the augury and danger sense. Perhaps a study via detect magic and detect evil, then kiri it. ^^
As long as I am unrestricted on what books I can pull my classes, feats, spells and so on from I'm happy. I only use official D&D, FR, Eberron, Dragon, and Dungeon content. I like playing either original D&D realms, Forgotten Realms or Iron Kingdoms. I've never played any other settings. I like action and hack and slash but having some role playing is nice too.
I've played on and off for two years now at my college. It's a pain to find DMs willing to DM games though so I haven't been playing much recently.
