Art of Crystallomancy

Crystallomancy, one of the Arts of Divination, is most often practiced in the South. It requires either a gemstone or a specially crafted orb, about a foot in diameter which any competent glassmaker can fashion. Which ever the thaumaturge chooses to use, this focusing item must cost at least Resource 2. Some antique scrying orbs have a greater pedigree, however, and grant up to a two-die bonus on scrying rolls (these cost Resources 5 for a one-die bonus and a two-dice bonus orb is a one-dot artifact.

Apprentice Level Procedure Attribute Difficulty Casting Time

        The thaumaturge meditates on their crystal or scrying orb for ten minutes in the presence of the target of the divination in order to gain insights that allow for further divination rituals which must be performed immediately.
Initiate Level Procedure Attribute Difficulty Casting Time
Lesser Divination Intelligence 4 thirty minutes
        By continuing the meditation started when he scried the crystal or orb, the thaumaturge can gain insights that allow him to make predictions about the target’s future, splitting successes between duration and accuracy. Duration: 1 (one month), 2+ (one season). Accuracy: extremely vague predictions (1) or vague (2+). Botches result in false predictions as does any attempt to targeting a Primordial or a native of the Wyld, Malfeas or the Underworld. The prediction created by the Storyteller assumes no interference from Heaven or beings that trigger automatic botches, such interference spoils predictions.
