Description: The psyker’s gaze is cast upon the infinite tides of the Warp, seeing the entire battlefield clearly in his mind’s eye. This rush of information is too much for weaker psyker’s to handle, often casting them into madness. But those who can focus are able to divine information regarding them battle with astounding precision, capturing every movement of troops and war machines under their omniscient gaze.
To begin the ritual, the psyker must spend at least thirty minutes using assorted psychic foci to concentrate his vision— drawing Tarot cards, casting runes, gazing deep into fire, the methods to this are as varied as the stars of the Imperium. At the end of this thirty minutes, the psyker makes his Focus Power Test to project his vision over the battlefield. Each Degree of Success reveals more information, as explained on Table 7–4: Scrier’s Gaze Results.

DoS Result
1 Single Threat: The psyker manages to focus his view on a single key manoeuvre the enemy is either planning, or currently enacting. This could be an ambush, an all out assault, or a flflanking manoeuvre, but regardless of its nature, it is a key manoeuvre to the enemy’s plans.
