Tells you about a target's strengths or weaknesses.


Holy insight tells you about some of the skills and stats of your target. What it tells you about in any given performing is random, so if you are looking for a specific skill/stat, you may have to perform it several times.

Holy insight will tell you stats and it will tell you bonuses (not levels). If the stats and bonuses are affected at the time by any stat items or stat penalties, then the reading from holy insight will change accordingly.

The bonuses for fighting, covert, faith and magic are overall bonuses. These are the ones shown when you type "skills" on its own. This feature makes these particular data less useful than perhaps desired.

Help File

The Holy Insight ritual asks your god for information about a person. You will then be told the person's strength and weaknesses. To perform this ritual you will require a holy symbol consecrated to your god.


> perform holy insight on wodan

You sing the hymn of knowledge.
You recite the words of divination.
You ask for knowledge about Wodan.
You sense that Wodan is extremely poor at staying unnoticed, extremely poor at combat, of reasonably good wisdom, of better than average agility and of quite poor strength.

Another Example

You sense that Althea of Pishe is extremely poor at staying unnoticed, masterly at noticing things, extremely poor at magic, masterly at religious matters, of average agility and of better than average health.

This tells me that Althea has bonuses of less than 65 in covert, over 400 in ot.pe, less than 65 in magic and over 400 in faith. She also has between 12 and 14 dex, and 15 or 16 con.

Thanks to Babar, Brue, Canab, Edana, Ezekial, Geva, Hypnotica, Mackdaddy, Persophane, Priesht, Soothsayer, Syrus, Trident, Wynona and Zatanna for help with testing. Special thanks also to Cliona for being very patient with me as I ran around AM looking for rocks.
