Level x D4
- Deep Gnosis
At 1st level, the scholar may spend an Expertise point to gain an automatic success at any skill check related to a knowledge-based skill they possess. Thus, a professor with Science-1 skill could use this ability to automatically succeed at a check to identify a particular chemical or analyze a mathematical formula. This ability does not apply to the Occult skill or other spheres of alien or magical knowledge, and it may be used only once per day.
- Resilient Mind
At 3rd level, the scholar can protect his or her sanity by rationalizing a horrific truth into some intellectual model. When gaining Madness from a Horror source, the scholar can trigger this gift to negate the Madness gain. Only one use of this gift is possible per day, but it may be used after the Madness is rolled.
- Know the Line and Form
At 7th level, the scholar may gain a sense of the purpose of an occult object or perceptible enchantment. A scholar may not be able to discern the exact rituals or operating methods of an occult object, but can distinguish true artifacts from fakes and identify the general purpose of an object or spell.
- Abominable Codex
At 10th level, the scholar can identify the type, powers, behavior, and special weaknesses of a supernatural or unearthly monster on sight, provided the monster is wearing its true shape and is not masquerading as some other creature. Unique or utterly unknown entities are not susceptible to this ability, though the scholar can often guess at weaknesses.
