Psychometry allows the sorcerer to determine information about the previous owner of an object touched. The object may be a completely lifeless inanimate object, or a body part or fluid previously “owned” by a still-living creature. Examples of the latter include the hair of a wolf, found caught in thorn-bush; or the blood of a king, spilled forth on the sand during a desperate fight to the death.

The sorcerer makes a Arcana check, with the DC dependent on how far into the object’s past he wishes to probe, as follows (take 10 not allowed):

Period in Object's Lifetime DC
Last Month 15
Last Year 20
Last Decade 25
Last Century 30
Last Millennium 35
Every Additional 1,000 years +5

Success means the caster learns one basic fact about the object during the specified period, such as the owner’s species, gender, land of origin, age, name, how he came by the object, and how he lost the object. The sorcerer gains an additional fact about the object for every 5 points his skill check exceeded the DC. A failed roll means the caster cannot use this spell on the same object for a month.
