Detect Metal (Action Powers)
|Templates for Action|
- Main article: Powers (Action)
You can analyze the properties of metal. You learn the exact composition and properties of the object and whether it has been affected by any powers recently.
You can sense the presence of metal and metal ore at a distance. Make a skill roll and multiply the result by 10; this is the range in meters. Normally, you detect any type of metal, but by concentrating on a particular shape or composition you can eliminate all others.
Dowsing involves the use of a dowsing fork or pendulum to locate something that is sought. You must have a clear image of what you seek. It can be either a specific item that a participant in the ritual has seen, or a general substance such as water or gold, in which case it detects the largest store of such material in range that was previously unknown to you. You can choose to set a maximum range not to be exceeded in order to limit the detection to a certain area.
Dowsing requires a Spot roll for Detection, opposed when looking for something that is owned or deliberately hidden. Apply normal range penalties to this roll. Line of sight is not a factor.
