The Thaumometer is one of the most useful and important tools in a thaumaturgist's arsenal, second only to the Thaumonomicon. Firstly it allows you to scan objects, creatures or mystical phenomena and determine their magical make-up - their Aspects. Secondly it makes discovering nodes easier, as they become clearly visible if viewed through the Thaumometer's lens - even through solid objects. To use the thaumometer, hold it in your hand and look at the object you're interested in. Magical nodes will appear as small glowing spheres of light.
When looking at an object or mob, the player will see its name near the top of the thaumometer screen. Hold the right mouse button for a number of seconds to scan the object or mob. The player wiill hear a clicking noise like a camera shutter and get a tickertape message in the bottom right corner (of your computer, not the thaumometer screen). The message can be of 5 types:
- nothing can be learned here
- to understand this you need to research x (where x is what's required, eg man, the mind, things that move)
- which aspects have been revealed.
- which aspects have been discovered.
- which hidden researches become available.
The player will see icons for the aspects in the centre of the thaumometer and the first time an object or mob is looked through the Thaumometer, they will also float to the top-right corner of the screen.
If the player looks at that item again, the aspect icons will be visible, and they can also be seen in inventory by hovering over with the mouse while holding the shift key.
