Investigation Information

Investigation is an Intelligence

Skill. When you look around for clues and make deductions based on those clues, you make an Intelligence (Investigation) check. You might deduce the location of a hidden object, discern from the appearance of a wound what kind of weapon dealt it, or determine the weakest point in a tunnel that could cause it to collapse. Poring through ancient scrolls in search of a hidden fragment of knowledge might also call for an Intelligence (Investigation) check.

      Investigation is important when reading material that could give out secret locations or information. (Always read with your highest investigation/arcana member)

        Would love to have an actual in-game description instead of the copy pasted DnD text.

        1. Like is Investigation ever a passive check like Perception? Or it only happens when you click on an object to investigate? Or both?
        2. Can you use another party member to click on an object to have them use their Investigation skill instead of you? And if you can, can this be repeated kinda like everyone rolls Perception on a hidden object?
