The bibliolalia incantation puts you in an oracular trance as you pore through books in a library. At the incantationís conclusion, you uncover lore about an important person, place, or thing beyond the limits of mundane research.

The information gleaned through a bibliolalia incantation isnít necessarily known to anyone, and it may not be in any of the books in the library. Nonetheless, something within the books triggers the burst of magical inspiration that reveals the information.

No set of rules can adequately describe how much information the bibliolalia incantation provides. If you have the item or person at hand, youíll learn more than if you just have a name or a cryptic clue.

Focus: A large library with at least a token occult section (purchase DC 25).

Experience Point Cost: 200 XP.

Failure: Falsehood. The bibliolalia incantation reveals information that seems accurate, but is actively misleading.
