Lets see... What do we have here?

Lemme give it a look.

A 1 Gift Investigate Object Power used by Dr. Scab, created by Redchigh.

Description

A bit of a gambler, he won this lupe in a game of cards some time back. The man he bought it from was a lost steampunk explorer, down on his luck and desperate for a small quantity of radium for some reason.

As Dr Scab pulls out his lupe and carefully examines the object in question, strange illusions can be caught in the lupe lens's reflection such as eyes, teeth, or flames but Scab doesn't seem to notice or mind, simply turning a little disk at the end presumably tweaking the focus.

System

Exert your Mind, target an Object within Arm's Reach and spend 1 Minute examining it. At the end of the cast time, roll Intellect + Investigation 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.


Enhancements

  • User Manual (You learn the object's intended function and how to use it for its intended purpose. This does not grant skill.)
  • Made in China (You gather information about where the object was made and when.)
  • Cantrip (This Power has no Exertion cost, but its level is capped at 2 Gifts, and it cannot be upgraded further)

Drawbacks

  • Focus (Using this Power requires a specific kind of item.)
    • Object - lupe
  • Unique Focus (This Power takes the form of a specific, unique item, which can be borrowed, lost, or stolen. You must use / wear this item as intended to use this Power.)
    • Focus - His 'lucky' lupe

Parameters

Range: 0 ( Arm's Reach ) Cast Time: 1 ( 1 Minute )
