The Profound Lens

The Profound Lens

Manse (Air)

The Profound Lens is a lenticular jewel apparently made of clear, blue-green tinted ice. Faint auroras shimmer through its depths, suggesting – upon closer examination – shoals and clouds of shifting old realm glyphs. Within these ever-evolving skeins of data can be found profound insights into the nature of essence and the world.

The bearer of the stone gains an insight into the nature of the universe second only to that of the Primordials, conferring (Essence) bonus successes on any roll to analyze an object or phenomenon with essence sight, equivalent senses, or arcane tools and techniques designed for such analysis.

Additionally, the stone instantly and permanently records the essence pattern of any thaumaturgy ritual the bearer witnesses, and allows the bearer to perform rituals recorded this way without paying their willpower cost. If the stone is destroyed these records are lost, but they otherwise remain intact even if the stone changes hands.
