I am playing in a game where it has been hinted we may come across creatures with very good hide and move silently skills, and most likely have abilities such as hide in plain sight, darkstalker feats, etc. The party we are in will have trouble spotting them. If we come up with a single (or obvious) solution, the DM may have thought of it and give the characters an ability to block it. So I was after as many options (spells, etc.) as possible, and also, what is the best way to block the options we come up with. Options that will spot them rather than locate square they are in will be better.
Some of the most obvious choices are :
- Daylight Pellet (MIC p.159), stopped by casting Deeper Darkness, antimagic field, or we may not know when to use it.
- Torch Bug Paste (Complete Scoundrel p.120), don't know which square to throw it into.
In the party we do have a warlock, fighter, cleric, wizard/ranger, rogue, and bard. Each would be interested in improving their ability to spot and find hidden creatures.
