I have a question on Thread Weaving for Magic Items and Item History:
Here are some items to consider:
- Pg. 155, Item History: If successful, each success reveals one new Key Knowledge from the item’s history. The adept can learn a maximum number of Key Knowledges from a given item equal to his Item History rank.
Pg 222, Test Knowledge: A character using the Item History talent discovers the Test Knowledge for a particular Key Knowledge at a specific Rank.
From the blog site is:
- Conspicuous Smuggler: A set of alligator hide thread armor
Thread Rank One- Key Knowledge: The wearer must learn the armor’s Name. Effect: The wearer gains +1 rank to Conceal Object.
Thread Rank Two - Effect: The armor no longer has an Initiative Penalty.
Thread Rank Three - Key Knowledge: The wearer must learn the Name of the armor’s first wearer. Effect: The wearer gains +2 ranks to Conceal Object.
Thread Rank Four - Effect: The armor is now Mystic Armor 2.
Thread Rank Five - Key Knowledge: The wearer must learn the details of the first wearer’s most famous smuggling adventure. Effect: For 1 Strain, the wearer may alter the appearance of the armor
Thread Rank Six - Effect: The armor is now Physical Armor 6.
The Conspicuous Smuggler has six thread ranks and three key knowledges.
If a character has Item History Rank 3:
Can he discover all of three key knowledges?
Does he learn the key knowledges associated with the first three thread ranks? (Ranks 1 and 3 have key knowledge, Rank 2 does not)
