I was trying to figure out exactly how to slot this ability for a NPC I want to use in my Origins campaign - where the original priestess would be in play. Can anyone help with actually stating out how the ability would work?

In all honesty it can be handled simply by using Psionic abilities and/or
Star Wars' Force Sight/Farseeing... I know it's called one of those but you hopefully get the idea.

Basically you can see into the future, but being that it is the future, it's only a probable outcome as time is relative and subject to change. And it's always got some level of vagueness.

So why need rules at all? They see into a possible future. Done. That's it. No special rules required...

No one but the DM could produce such an effect - it effectively states what WILL happen, which may not seem like much, but is a relatively hard thing to do in D&D.

Mainly, it's a lot of work for the GM every time he wants to give a prediction to predict out why things would happen the way they do.

That to, it should be used very carefully for the reasons above. As it's something only the GM could know.

lol, Edo Tensei.

My bad, I'm not accustomed to the lower rate of activity. Threads on page one of a forum I intuitively expect to be recentish threads and don't look at the dates.

Hm...that's actually a fair reason, places like giantitp have front page in the last hour or so depending on category.
