Retrospective Savant

Source Drift Crisis Case Files pg. 55
You are highly skilled at detecting and interpreting the psychic impressions left behind by past events.

Prerequisites: Cha 21, Minor Psychic Power, character level 16th

Benefit: Once per day, you can spend 1 Resolve Point to cast retrocognition as a spell-like ability. Whenever you cast retrocognition, you gain a +4 insight bonus to Will saving throws to avoid losing your concentration when encountering psychic turbulence. In addition, for 5 minutes after the effect ends, you can take 20 on Recall Knowledge checks relating directly to the location and time interval that was analyzed. However, you can only learn information about events that were experienced or witnessed by at least one sapient being, and the information is conveyed as if you had personally experienced it through the senses of one such creature, possibly causing it to be incomplete or unreliable at the GM’s discretion. Additional uses of this ability to analyze an area always convey their information through the same observer.
