Techcraft (Int; Trained Only)
You are skilled at the art of crafting, understanding and identifying technological objects.
Techcraft is used whenever you want to identify the properties of a technological item. The DC of this check varies depending upon the task at hand. The DC to correctly identify and understand an unknown technological object is equal to the object’s Craft DC. An object with a Craft DC of 15 or less can be automatically identified and understood by someone trained in Techcraft who also has the Technologist feat.
Techcraft is also used to craft technological item in conjunction with the Technologist feat and the technological item crafting feats. Without the Technologist feat, Techcraft can still be used to craft less advanced forms of technology such as gears, hinges, and pulleys.
Attempting to ascertain the properties of a technological item takes 10 minutes per item to be identified and you must be able to thoroughly examine the object. Making a Techcraft check to craft a technological item is made as part of the creation process.
When trying to learn the properties of technological items, you can only attempt to ascertain the properties of an individual item once per day. Additional attempts reveal the same results.
Without the Technologist feat, you treat all Techcraft checks as if they were untrained skill checks.
