A thread item is its own pattern item, essentially, so you don't need a pattern item for a thread item.
I don't believe I mentioned pattern items in relation to thread/magic items, only to true patterns (of people, places and such)

Re: Pattern Items and True Patterns?

Before you get buried in an avalanche of help, let's back up here to a simple question. What are you trying to do? What's your objective (beyond "understand this")? 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 Item...

Re: Pattern Items and True Patterns?

Agreed, if I've asked a similar question there's definitely something not clicking for me. Problem is I'm not that familiar with the game rules from a playing experience; I'm approaching this question from a theory point of view only. To be honest, after going through the replies I'm still confused ...

Is there a difference between Key Knowle...

Re: Astral Sensing and Thread Sight

It lets you see patterns. Anything with a pattern can (with time, experience, and enough successes) be understood. That's it? If that's it, that's great. I can work with that. One wrinkle, I'm sure blood magic damage doesn't have a pattern but you mentioned it in your earlier example. I assume you ...

Re: Astral Sensing and Thread Sight

This is the sort of thing that foxes me because it just brings up more questions. I'll try and explain. What sorts of things Astral Sensing tells you depends a lot on what you're pointing it at. I like this description, it sums up nicely, in general terms, what AS is used for. Point it at a living t...

Astral Sensing and Thread Sight

Page 211-212 The two examples using Astral Sensing and Thread Sight. I don't see any mechanical difference. All I see is Astral Sensing gives more information (that the GM has to make up) than Thread Sight, yet, what can you do with that extra info? As far as I can tell, Astral Sensing reveals there...
