RECORD ACCESS
 Universal (Fundamental)
 Level: Apprentice
 Usage Time: 1 minute
 Range: Personal
 Target: You
 Duration: Instantaneous
 Ritual Benefit: +1 circumstance bonus on all Knowledge checks
 By logging into the Akashic Records, you can search through the accumulated data and temporarily improve your knowledge of one subject.  You may use this fundamental in one of two ways.
 (1) On a failed Knowledge check, you can use this technique to gain a new check with a +4 competence bonus.  If successful, you were able to find relevant information within the Akashic Records.  If you fail, you cannot try again.
 (2) You can make any Knowledge check as if you were trained, and you get a +4 competence bonus on that check.  If successful, you were able to find relevant information within the Akashic Records, even if you yourself knew nothing about the subject matter.  If you fail, you cannot try again.

RECORD LOOKUP
 Universal (Fundamental)
 Level: Initiate
 Usage Time: 1 minute
 Range: Personal
 Target: You
 Duration: Concentration, up to 1 min./level
 Ritual Benefit: +2 circumstance bonus on all Knowledge checks
 By logging into the Akashic Records, you can search through the accumulated data and find information about a particular person, place, or thing.  You may use this fundamental in one of two ways.
 (1) By searching through the accumulated data breadth first, you can find information about the most important events, legends, facts, etc. that have occurred or are about the person, place, or thing selected.  You discover one important event, legend, fact, etc. per minute concentrated, in order of importance (most important things first).
 (2) By searching through the accumulated data depth first, you can find information about the most recent events, legends, facts, etc. that have occurred or are about the person, place, or things selected.  You discover one event, legend, fact, etc. per minute concentrated, in reverse chronological order (newest things first).
 If you use this fundamental additional times focusing on the same person, place, or thing, the information yielded is the same as if you were using the fundamental for the first time.

RECORD PREDICTION
 Universal (Fundamental)
 Level: Master
 Usage Time: 1 minute
 Range: Personal
 Target: You
 Duration: Concentration; see text
 Ritual Benefit: +3 circumstance bonus on all Knowledge checks
 By logging into the Akashic Records and submitting a query for further analysis, you can take advantage of the impressive computational powers of the Records.  You may use this fundamental in one of two ways.
 (1) You can get answers to a number of yes--no questions.  A yes--no question is a question that can be answered with a simple yes or no.  You are allowed a number of questions equal to your Akashic Ability modifier.  The answers given are correct within the limits of the Akashic Records' knowledge.  "Unclear" is a legitimate answer, because the Akashic Records are not yet omniscient.  In cases where a one-word answer would be misleading, a short phrase (five words or less) may be given as an answer instead.
 You may ask questions at a rate of 1 question per minute.  You may ask questions about future events, but only future events occurring within days for which you have horoscopes prepared.
 (2) You can get an answer to a single complex query.  The Records can provide detailed information about most creatures, objects, and places including, but not limited to:
 
  • Its name, race, alignment, and character class(es).
  • A general estimate of its level or Hit Dice.
  • Its location (including place of residence, town, country, world, and plane of existence).
  • Significant items in its possession.
  • Any significant activities or actions the creature has undertaken, including details such as locales traveled through, the names or races of those the creature fought, techniques it used, items it acquired, and items it lost.
The Akashic Record has no information on the activities and whereabouts of creatures, objects, or places affected by effects such as mind blank or other effects that block scrying effects.  The Akashic Records cannot see into antimagic fields.  There is one exception to this rule.  The Akashic Records are always aware of the usage of techniques, and can always provide information about a technique used, the user of the technique, the target of the technique, and where the technique was used.
 Submitting a query and getting a response takes 5 minutes.

SOUL PROTECT
 Universal (Fundamental)
 Level: Apprentice
 Usage Time: 1 minute
 Range: Personal
 Target: You
 Duration: 24 hours (D)
 Ritual Benefit: +1 circumstance bonus on Bluff checks
 No technique or effect can detect your alignment while under the protection of this fundamental.  In addition see the supernatural and similar effects cannot detect that you are a technician.  Furthermore, see the supernatural and similar effects cannot detect the magic aura of this fundamental unless the user of the see the supernatural technique succeeds on an opposed technician level check (1d20 + technician level) against you.
 Against analysis disassemble or similar targeted dispelling effects, this fundamental is always checked last.
