Consume mind is a hideous ritual that any sane individual would shy from. To cast this spell the sorcerer must consume the specially prepared brain of a once living creature in it’s entirely. The brain must be well preserved- if it has rotted or is damaged it is useless for the purposes of this spell. By doing so, the caster hopes to consume the knowledge therein for his own use. This spell not only requires a strong stomach but a debauched nature to utilize.
Upon completing this ritual, the caster is overwhelmed with the sensations of the memories of the brain he has just eaten as the information is ‘digested’. The caster can then examine these memories for information they desire, but retrieving it from the massive amount of ingested information is an act of effort. The caster must make a Concentration skill check against a DC based on the complexity and obscurity of this information. Simple information such as their name, family, home, everyday routine can be gained automatically. Simple information such as the location of their childhood village would require a DC 10, the contents of a book they read a year ago would merit a 15, the exact layout of a fortress including secret passages they lived in years ago would be a 20 while the precise details of a complicated ritual in which each intonation of the words must be correct or damn the caster forever rates a 30 or higher. After the duration of this spell expires the stolen memories fade out of the caster’s mind forever, though the caster may record this information normally while under the influence of the spell.

Material Component: A well-preserved brain.
Experience Point Cost: 250 XP.
