The Thaumometer is one of the most useful and important tools in a thaumaturgist's arsenal, second only to the Thaumonomicon. It allows you to scan objects, creatures or mystical phenomena and determine their magical make-up - their Aspects. To use the thaumometer, hold it in your hand and look at the object you're interested in.

When looking at an object or mob, press the right mouse button 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 of the thaumometer screen. The message can be of 2 types:

  1. nothing new can be learned from here
  2. you have learned something new

If the player looks at some mob, the aspect icons will be visible.

Lastly, you can see level of Vis and Flux in Chunk's Aura.

Thaumonomicon Entry[edit]

First Steps

(Stage 1)

"Who would've thought that a few sprinkles of dust could have created this marvellous book? It is mostly blank, but it hints at a powerful new form of magic: Thaumaturgy.

Firstly I will need to study the magical world that has been shown to me. For that I will need a tool - a Thaumometer the book calls it.

A normal crafting table won't do however since the magical energies I need to channel while crafting it are quite delicate. A sprinkling of Salis Mundus on a mundane crafting table should solve that. The book has taught me the proper incantation to use it so it should be a simple matter.

To keep myself on track I will make a list of all requirements that need to be met on the first page of the new entry."

(Stage 2)

"Progress! I now have an Arcane Workbench at my disposal. It works much like a mundane crafting table and can even be used as such, however there are a few key differences.

Firstly, many arcane recipes will requirethe use of those vis crystals that I've been finding of late. They act as a focus for the magical energy I need to channel into the items I craft. The book calls this magical energy Vis.

Supposedly this energy is all around me, but as yet I cannot perceive or measure it.

It is time I craft the Thaumometer and use it to study the world around me. It should clearly mark those things I still need to examine.

I have placed a bookmark to the Thaumometer recipe on the right."

(Finished)

"Such strange wonders are being revealed to me. Peering through the lens of the Thaumometer shows me a world coursing with magic, Vis as the books calls[sic] it.

Normally this energy is a pure ocean of magic that ebbs and flows, but it also permeates all things, both animate and unanimate. The book calls Vis in this state Essentia. Where Vis is formless and pure, Essentia is more rigid in its nature and falls into a multitude of clearly defied types, each mixing together with others to form greater and more complex types of Essentia.

I am not quite sure if the matter it is bound to gives Essentia it nature, or that the very nature of matter depends on the Essentia in contains. This bears further study.

I am keeping a log of all the types of essentia I discover. A bookmark on the left will show my current knowledge.

For now I need to focus my energies elsewhere. Studying essentia might be a good place to start."
