Description: You have a semi-magical (“psychic”) talent for catching glimpses of the past when you touch objects. Skills Affected: Investigation
Effects: Echoes of the Past: You can perform an assessment action on the history of a given object that you are able to touch and contemplate. This is a standard Investigation roll, but instead of searching a physical location, you are rifling through the situations that the object has been exposed to in the past, looking for glimpses of something significant. Psychometry assessments are more difficult than normal (Good or higher), so even with a high roll, you may only get one aspect or fact, and you may not receive any additional context to help you make sense of it. For example, a knife used as a murder weapon could only give you fleeting images from the scene, not enough to make a positive ID on the killer; but you could see something like A Butterfly Necklace that you can tag later as a clue on a future roll.
