Thaumapista is the magic of insight, tracking, and enhanced train of thought. It also allows casters to better cover their own tracks through the use of concealment.
Thaumapista focuses on the magics of tracking abilities, both of the hunter and the hunted. Its spells are divided into three major categories.
Enhanced InsightEnhanced Insight grants the caster abilities to better tap into their own intuition and knowledge. While these spells do not provide the caster with any new information they do allow mages to combine all possibly applicable knowledge they possess to find possible links or highlight items of particular interest. While useful for Game Wardens and other such professionals these spells are also popular among Alchemists and Chemists, archeologists, law enforcement, and Healers.
Augmented SensesAugmented Senses are most often used to augment the caster's sense of smell or hearing with that of the animal of their choice. Some also classify the magic of sight enhancement, Thaumathea, as a subset of Augmented Senses.
ConcealmentThe magics of Concealment allow casters to not only identify any tracks or other clues they have left behind, but also contains a variety of spells to help conceal or eliminate those traces of their paths. Spellwork to confuse scent, deaden sound with Anemancy, or even temporarily disrupt visibility reside within this classification.
Access & Availability
Enhanced Insight is the most commonly used form of Thaumapista, often taught to students by their more experienced peers during magical training as an aid during exams. Some Chemists have attempted to develop alchemical recipes to mimic the spells but thus far have not been successful.
