>STUDY my electrum tuner
You carefully study a scintillating electrum tuner.
This appears to be a magic tuner, a device which can be used to artifically perceive mana streams regardless of type or presence of Attunement. While it is impossible to manipulate mana through them, it is possible to get an accurate gauge of the quality of mana in a region (or time, for Lunar mana) using it.
There is one rather unpleasent twist these are not hand-held devices. Instead, the tuner must be implanted in the spinal cord of the recipient to function. If successfully implanted, the tuner may then be invoked at any time to gauge the frequency it is tuned to.
This particular tuner has not been prepared for surgery. It must be shaped, preferably by someone other than the recipient, to prepare it for implantation. You realize that a diagnostic link with the intended recipient would help you with the shaping process.

>FOCUS my electrum tuner
You focus your magical senses on a scintillating electrum tuner.
You sense a definite Life pattern imbued within the tuner.
In addition to Life energy, the tuner is imbued with Elemental energy. A complex Analogous Pattern has been used to prevent the magics from directly interacting.
The pattern is at full power.
The functionality of the tuner is not readily apparent and may bear closer studying.

Allows the user to perceive elemental mana via INVOKE. See mana tuners for additional details, including implanting and unlocks.
