Re: Pattern Items and True Patterns?

I now think I know what's been confusing me. What confused me was there are two ways of researching a True Pattern - but I did not realise the difference between the two. Mundane Research (without a Pattern Item) Conducting research without a Pattern Item might get you the required knowledge, but yo...

Page 226 : "The most common method of obtaining a True Pattern’s Key Knowledges is to obtain and study one or more of its Pattern Items " Page 229 : "By researching the history and activities of a True Pattern , it is possible to obtain its Research Knowledges ."

A thread item is its own pattern item, essentially, so you don't need a pattern item for a thread item.
