The Scrying spell allows players to look at distant targets. Are there abilities or spells that allow players or characters to launch attacks against a target they are scrying?
While I am aware that characters could teleport in, I'm more concerned about zero-risk attacks from super far away.
This question was spurred by the UA sorcerer ability, Hound of Ill Omen. Recently, one of my players cast Scrying on an commoner NPC from a great distance, and then used her Hound of Ill Omen feature on the NPC. The text of the feature reads,
As a bonus action, you can spend 3 sorcery points to summon a hound of ill omen to target one creature you can see. The hound uses a dire wolf’s statistics ...
Because the character could see the NPC, I couldn't find a good reason to disallow this, and the NPC was torn to pieces.
I'm not sure if this is just a quirk of the UA wording, or if there is a precedent for this kind of attack.
Just to be clear, my question is not whether Hound of Ill Omen works this way. My question is whether other abilities/spells/etc. also work this way.
