Fabrication Classification Identification (abbreviated as FCI) is a first order miscellaneous spell which attempts to identify the targeted magical artifact.

An artifact must be probed with this spell before it can be recharged.

Spell details

This spell costs 45 gp to cast and takes up 15 units of mind space.

Skills

The following skills are used in the stages of this spell:

Levels of success

There are two levels of success in this spell. A full success will identify the artifact and charges remaining, and produce an extra line indicating that the caster will always recognize that particular artifact, permanently enabling the caster to recharge that artifact type. A 'half' success will identify the artifact and charges remaining, but the caster will have to re-identify it in the future until a full success is achieved.

The caster's ability to identify higher level artifacts is determined by their bonus in the relevant items skill, e.g. a high bonus in magic.items.held.wand is required to identify a balsa wand.

Example

 
You prepare to cast Fabrication Classification Identification on the red staff.
You wonder about the red staff.
You peer at the red staff, probing at its ticklish parts.
You coax the red staff to make it reveal its basic identity.
The weave indicates that the red staff is a Frottjor's staff, with eight charges remaining.
