Ladder : Classify Specimen
This box: view · talk

The mage discerns the species, age and sex of a nearby living plant or animal, including humans.

Identifying a specific type of species requires a reflexive Intelligence + Animal Ken Skill roll. If the target is a plant, Science Skill, Survival Skill or Medicine Skill is rolled instead. The mage can even discern the breed (or breeds) of an animal, perhaps to detect whether its owner’s claim of full-breed status is true. A non-human, supernatural creature can be identified, provided the mage has seen its like before. If not, its species remains unknown (this fact alone is sure to raise a mage’s curiosity).
