Q: Dear Sage,
How often can a swordsage (Tome of Battle p16) use his Sense Magic class feature on a particular weapon or armor?
A: A swordsage may only use Sense Magic on a particular armor or weapon once.
You can think of this as similar to using a Spellcraft check to identify a spell that’s already in place, or to identify a potion.
At the DM’s discretion, you can try again after you gain a new level.
About the Author
The Sage is a mammal classified in the bear family, Ursidae, native to central and southern China. Debate continues as to whether he is truly a bear or more related to the raccoon rather than the bear, or perhaps in a family of his own. When not eating bamboo and answering rules questions, he works under the nom de plume of Andy Collins as an RPG developer in Wizards of the Coast R&D, where his development credits include Complete Mage, Dragon Magic, and the Player's Handbook v.3.5. He can be easily recognized by his large, distinctive black patches around the eyes, ears and on his rotund body.
