You can tell whether an area contains a magic portal or the
effect of a gate spell. If you study an area for 1 round, you
know the sizes and locations of any such portals in the area.
Once you fi nd a portal, you can study it. (If you fi nd more
than one portal, you can study only one at a time.)
Each round you study a portal, you can discover one property
of the portal, in this order.
• Any key or command word needed to activate the portal.
• Any special circumstances governing the portal’s use (such
as specifi c times when it can be activated).
• Whether the portal is one-way or two-way.
• A glimpse into the area where the portal leads. You can
look at the area where the portal leads for 1 round; the
range of your vision is the spell’s range. Analyze portal does
not allow other divination spells or spell-like abilities to
extend through the portal. For example, you cannot also
use detect magic or detect evil to study the area where the
portal leads while viewing the area with analyze portal.
For each property, you attempt a caster level check (1d20 +
caster level) against DC 17. If you fail, you can try again in
the next round.
Material Components: A crystal lens and a small mirror.
