Knowledge
The character attempts to recall important facts. The character makes a Results Roll, and gains a number of important or pertinent pieces of information equal to the Potency. This takes a number of Full Rounds equal to the Difficulty.

Research
The character researches information within a library, or other place of learning. The character makes a Results Roll, and gains a number of detailed pieces of information equal to the Potency. This takes a number of hours equal to the Difficulty. The character may increase the time required to days, gaining a number of Additional Success equal to their Growth on the roll.

Knowledge versus Research
When time is of the essence, it is usually more suitable to make a Knowledge roll, and hope to get important information. If the character needs detail however, a Research roll is better, as the game master will give more information per Success. Also, a Library counts as Equipment and the character may get a bonus from others helping gather information.
