This skill allows a character to search out information or follow a series of clues and leads to a reasonable conclusion through deduction, source checking, going to libraries, searching on the Internet, and the like. Alternatively, this skill can be used by the character to do legwork — running down leads on a story, or questioning contacts and sources of information (the latter would incur some penalties; this aspect would best be left to the Questioning Skill).
