Would it be possible to make infravision a bit more effective? My
idea for the spell is this: due to the nature of infravision
(seeing the infrared) it seem that one would be able to detect
the presence of hidden and invis people. My thoughts are: make
invis people able to be detected with infravision (but not
identifiable... ie: someone stands here... or something to do with
seeing the heat from their body. It might be a bit unbalancing
if one could attack 'somebody'... so just make their presence
able to be detected, but their identity would remain unknown. It
might give a bit of a kick in the pants for this pretty useless
spell -not completely useless, but mostly unused- I think there
should be a chance that the person will not notice as well even
though infravision is on so mebbe if perc could be factored into
the successful detection of invis people.

mmm. infravision being another spectrum of light, it'll be weird
to have invisible (not being detected by any spectrum of light, since
they go through) noticeable with infrared. but i do think it's a
tad bit unfair for non-mages have absolutely 0 chance of detecting
somebody that's hiding (makes it pretty easy for mages to gain
initiative against non-mages, or hide from them) and maybe
nightvision or some other skill could allow for at least a marginal
chance of detect hidden. Hell, maybe we should make the see invis
and det. hid not fool-proof, and have it dependant on something or

I thought that very high perc gave a chance of detecting hidden? Or
is that only sneak?

It's only sneak, but it would be nice to be able to see hidden
with high perc and/or nightvision, or at least have a chance to.

I think there is a resonable way to allow non-mages to detect hidden.
It only takes a builder with the right combination of area
and item creation to make a detect hidden affect item.
Personaly I think that would be a good idea.
