Detecting Magic

If you can cast spells as part of your class (you are a Mage, Psychic, or Cleric), then you're also able to naturally detect magic in the area of effect. All spellcasters have this ability. You need only study an area of effect to perceive the aura generated by magic. Detecting magic requires active concentration. You must specifically declare that you’re studying an area of effect to detect magic. Furthermore, the Bard class, while technically a spellcaster, cannot detect magic unless the effect is musical in some way.
