Arcane Wednesday - From Pathfinder 3rd Level Sorcerer/Wizard spell Open Book https://www.d20pfsrd.com/magic/all-spells/o/open-book
This is like a supercharged version of the various “detect thought” spells that appear in various versions of D&D. With this third-level spell, the caster can permanently read the mind and the entire history of the target creature. Of course, having permanent access to someone else’s thoughts has the potential to be as much a curse as a boon—constantly knowing the running inner monologue of someone else can’t always be particularly pleasant, I would imagine.
To me the permanency of this spell makes it seems overpowered for 3rd level—it seems like that should be for a spell of a much higher slot like 6th or 7th level. I would think at 3rd level you might get an hour or so of time to read the thoughts and history of a target.
Have you ever used this spell in a Pathfinder game? Do you think it is overpowered for its level, or does it seem to fit with the magic of other 3rd level spells in the Pathfinder system?
