The caster can whisper messages and receive whispered replies with little chance of being overheard. The caster designates each creature to be included in the spell effect
. When the caster whispers, the whispered message is audible to all of the targeted creatures who are within range
. Magical silence
, 1 foot of stone, 1 inch of common metal (or a thin sheet of lead), or 3 feet of wood or dirt blocks the spell
. The message, however, does not have to travel in a straight line. It can circumvent a barrier if there is an open path between the caster and the subject, and the path's entire length lies within the spell
. The creatures who receive the message can whisper a reply that the caster hears. The spell
transmits sound, not meaning. It doesn't transcend language barriers.
