Finishing his ritual cast Kwisatz looks towards the house and says "Ah! It seems they wanted to remain alert! Smart, and cautious. The doors and windows are set with a type of alarm in case someone enters."
Does a spell like this end if it's broken? Would seeing the spell still active mean that no one has been in? Kwiz would surly know these things ^^
"Before we let the riffraff trample all of the area. I would like to take an opportunity to check the perimeter of the house. Scout the area out for tracks, if you would be so kind."Before making any move toward the house, Umdrak looks towards Kwasatz, "is it safe to approach little book worm?"
(looking for tracks leading in or out of the house from the door or first floor windows Survival 11 /w Advantage if the tracks are human or orc 12)
As he's about to be lifted, Kwisatz himself objects ((lol)) "Now hold on just a second there young man! If you'd like to open the window from here I can do that..." as he casts mage hand and moves it around "Though I'll not be the first through a window! And while I can detect the presence of the arcane, I am as of yet unable to dispel it's hold."
The windows is locked from the inside but it is a simple trick for the gnome to unlatch it with the magic. (Insight roll please Kwisatz )
((Is it?)) Insight 22
Kwiz mage hand does indeed releasing the small latch closing the window and something triggers in his mind. With the protection on the windows he shouldn't have been able to do that. Someone may have used that trick before.
As the window opens Kwisatz will sit on the ground, and close his eyes, now seeing through the eyes of his white raven, Duncan, who he will direct to fly to the window sill and look inside. Flying further in if he sees nothing dangerous.
