Description: Malva's Marvelous Magical Mechanical Manipulation, more commonly known as the Machinist's Touch pattern, is a very specialized application of Perception magic that greatly amplifies and refines the subject's somatic senses. These enhanced senses are most commonly employed when working with delicate or complex mechanisms where eyesight alone may prove insufficient. Outside of those applications most magicians avoid use of the spell since it can be rather distracting.
Effect: +Engineering skill, +Locksmithing skill
Example Messaging: Self:
You gesture.
Your flesh tingles as your somatic senses are amplified.

Your enhanced somatic senses fade away.

<Player> gestures at you.
Your body feels weird, as if a swarm of invisible insects were crawling over you.

The crawling sensation finally leaves your body, though you feel somehow diminished in its absence.


  • There are distracting side-effects (only when cast on other players?) which are currently turned off, and may not be turned on.
