Discern Iniquity                    Minor Spirit Knowledge Skill

Syntax: automatic

Even a basic understanding of the spirit world allows an initiate of its
mysteries to sense the presence of evil. This ability empowers the mage to
detect NPCs of evil alignment, as well as PCs who have tainted their souls
sufficiently. The scholar will see such evildoers as though surrounded with
a red aura, and will sense their presence when they draw near. This ability
grants only a superficial glimpse into the soul, however, and thus cannot
distinguish essential evil from mere recent wrongdoing; neither can it
separate the holy from the simply apathetic.

Primary Attributes: Intelligence, Wisdom
