Standard Action: Carve Effigy. The wielder of the Stylus observes a monster they can see and concentrates while holding a clay surface in their hand, moving the floating Stylus using their mind. The guided Stylus carves a magical Effigy image into this handheld clay. If there is one intact magical Effigy of a monster, additional attempts to make magical Effigies of that same monster by this Stylus automatically fail. If the wielder succeeds on a DC 5 + the monster's CR (round down) writing tool proficiency check, the drawing animates the monster's most recently performed action, revealing insight about this action. For example: - If the monster had performed a Skill Check, the wielder learns its proficiency with that skill. - If the monster had performed a weapon or spell attack, the wielder learns the attack modifier and maximum damage. - If the monster had performed a Saving Throw, the wielder learns the modifier. - If the monster had performed a Ready action, the wielder learns the trigger for this Ready action. - If the monster used a special ability, the wielder gains insight regarding this ability.
