I replied with:"While staring at the shrine & surrounding area, does she sense any magic ?? Not sure if that's an inherent ability or not."
(Hors being the Cult the person is in)"To try to find magic areas you would use Lore (Hors) - but that would only work on something of your own god or similar.
Interesting...there isn't really a skill that could be used purely for "detect magic in general" so I would probably GM that you'd still use your Lore (Hors) but with a penalty applied depending on the circumstances. Hm. I might just ask about that in the Mongoose forums.....! "
I figure "Perception" could also be used maybe?
My first instinct was "Insight", but reading the book that is all about reading peoples' feelings and facial expressions etc and not the tradition D&D Insight.
So does anyone have any other ideas on what to best use for a general all-purpose "is there magic around?" test?
