Forensic Lens

Cost : 250gp
Weight : 2 lbs.
Craft DC : 25

This headpiece is a mono-goggle equipped with an array of lenses that can be rotated into and out of position to aid vision. The lenses are of varying appearance, from clear glass to multicolored and smoked crystal. A leather headband holds the mono-goggle in place, and the entire device is relatively sturdy. The lenses have each been created or transmuted through alchemy to highlight subtle clues and identifiers in biological evidence. A forensic lens wearer can examine blood, spoor, or other physiological evidence and identify the type of creature the evidence came from by making a Knowledge (various, by creature type) skill check. This is similar to the standard use of Knowledge skills to identify an encountered creature, but has a DC of 15 + the creature’s CR. If the forensic lens wearer’s check result exceeds he DC by 10 or more, the creature’s sex (if any) and approximate age (if living) can also be determined.
