Knowing the facts and knowing the secrets of old

Knowing the facts and knowing the secrets of old

To further differentiate between the shaman and tinkerer character types of the ruins of old, the knowing the unknown (CSR 36) ability is house ruled and changed into two seperate abilities. Knowing the facts is used by shamans, and knowing the secrets of old is used by tinkerers.

Knowing the facts:
Tapping into a source of information beyond yourself, you can ask the GM one question about a current state of affairs and get a general answer. The GM assigns a level to the question, so the more obscure the answer, the more difficult the task. Generally, knowledge that you could find by looking somewhere other than your current location is level 1, and obscure knowledge is level 7. Gaining knowledge of the future is impossible. Action.

Knowing the secrets of old:
Tapping into the datasphere, you can ask the GM one question about the old civilization and get a general answer. The GM assigns a level to the question, so the more obscure the answer, the more difficult the task. Generally, knowledge that would have been common knowledge to members of the old civilization is level 1, and obscure knowledge of the past is level 7. Gaining knowledge of the future is impossible. Action.
