This spell lets you communicate with a statue, sculpture, painting, or other representation of a dwarf that was crafted by dwarf craftsmen. At 1st-level, you can ask the object a single question relating to the current dungeon level. This usage of the spell will not work if the object has been removed from the dungeon level it was found in. The statue, painting, etc. animates and answers the question in a simple and straightforward manner.
At Higher Levels. Dwarven casters can automatically cast the spell at 2 levels higher than the slot they consume. When you cast this using a 3rd-level spell slot, you can ask a question relating to the entire dungeon. This usage will not work if the object was removed from the dungeon. With a 5th-level slot, the actual spirit of the dwarf represented manifests, and will answer any question that it knew in life. At 7th-level, you can ask up to three questions. At 9th-level, you can carry on a conversation lasting up to 10 minutes.
