Consult Tome

Channel your energy into the book and gain insight into the world around you.

A 1 Gift Investigate Object Power used by Preston Vincent Astor III, created by ShadyTradesman.


Open up a musky tome. Its pages flutter as it turns to a page it did not previously have: a description about the object right in front of you! The book will answer your questions about where the object was made, who by, and how it is used.

System Active

Exert your Mind, target an object within Arm's Reach and spend 1 Minute examining it. At the end of the cast time, roll Brawn + Academics Difficulty 6. The quality of the information you receive depends on your outcome, and the nature of the information depends on the Enhancements you have chosen.

The number of information-revealing Enhancements attached to this power is limited to 2 for Novice Contractors, 4 for Seasoned Contractors, and 7 for Veteran Contractors. You may still take any number of other, non-informational Enhancements.


  • User Manual (You learn how to use this object for its intended purpose. This does not grant skill)
  • Made in China (You gather information about where the object was made and when.)


  • Focus (Activating this Power requires a specific kind of item.)
    • Object - An old musty tome
