Master Craftsman's Eye</b>
<b>Cost: 1 mote Duration: Instant Type: Simple Minimum Craft: 1 Minimum Essence: 1 Prerequisite Charms: None
With but a glance, the character can evaluate the craftsmanship of any item, including the exact materials used, the skill with which the item was originally made, it's age and current condition, and the level of use it has recently seen, and how well it has been cared for. In addition to selecting the best quality equipment, this charm can also effortlessly detect forgeries and find the most stable footing in man-made structures that have fallen into disrepair. The charm will also reveal any Craft charms that were used in the item's creation, and also tell whether or not it is enchanted in any way, although it won't reveal any details of the enchantment's nature.
Secret Unlocking Examination
Cost: 6 motes Duration: Instant Type: Simple Minimum Craft: 3 Minimum Essence: 2 Prerequisite Charms: Master Craftsman's Eye
In just a few minutes of careful examination, the character becomes intimately familiar with an artifact. In addition to all the of the information he could have gleaned with Master Craftsman's Eye, the character also perfectly understands all of the purposes and uses of the artifact that its creator did not specifically attempt to conceal (very useful in the case of First Age works whose usage is no longer commonly understood). If the artifact is enchanted, the character learns the general nature of the enchantment and how it is used. Furthermore, the character also reads the signature traces of Essence left by the artifact's original creator. If the creator is personally known to the character his identity is obvious; otherwise, the character learns the creator's rough level of permanent Essence, whether he was mortal or beyond human, and if Exalted, the type of Exaltation.

Effortless Genius Exercise

In the space of one scene, as long as the character has access to some form of writing materials (even something as crude as a stick and some dirt to draw in), the character can almost instantly devise the most complicated plans. He may immediately make an Intelligence + Craft roll for the planning phase of any crafting project, even for large-scale projects (such as manse architecture) which would normally taken several months of time to plan. The character may use other Charms to supplement the roll, but if he does not accumulate enough successes he must take the normal amount of time to work on his plans before he can make any further rolls.
GAH! I'm fixing up your formating, lest I go mad. DS
The charms are very nice though. I might try and use some.
How does everyone feel about Dazzling Swift Hands Technique? One of my players is interested in the tree, and I don't want to have to worry that he's 'getting away with something', so I figured I'd check in and ask. - GregLink
