Backtrace is an ability a Moon Mage is granted that allows them to tell where a locate has come from. Any time a Moon Mage locates someone it leaves a residual imprint of magic in that room. If a Moon Mage knowing the backtrace ability PERCEIVES in that room they will get a description telling them one of several things depending on skill:

  • Who was located but not who cast the Locate spell
  • Who was located and the Moon Mage who located them
  • Who was located, the Moon Mage who located them, and the room name the mage was in when he cast the spell

To learn this ability knowledge of the Locate spell must be known as well as Attunement skill requirement. You will automatically know the ability once the above requirements have been met.
