Researching a creature and learning its weaknesses will increase the likelihood of victory in the ultimate confrontation.
A hero can uncover secrets about a particular creature or type of creature through research. The success of any such endeavor is measured with Research skill checks.
Researching a creature takes 1d4 hours plus an additional 1d4 hours if the creature is unique or has traits unlike other members of its species. The type of information gleaned in this amount of time depends on the hero's Research check result, as shown below.
